For you who are too young to remember - it was a time when the performers were happy, enjoying themselves, respecting their fans, dressed appropriately and their lyrics could be understood. They did not feel obligated to scream, eat the microphone, mumble inaudible lyrics or trash the set.
In 1957, The Diamonds had a hit with "Little Darlin." 47 years later, they were requested to perform at Atlantic City ....this link leads to both performances. Watch the first one, then the new one 47 years later.
Tom Hank’s father is much better looking than Tom, and even better looking with age. In the linked videos Tom Hank's father, who is the Lead Singer of The Diamonds, is on the left.
He still has it and in the 1957 version, you can see the resemblance between father and son!
The video is a bit rough around the edges but worth the time to watch! Harv
