Little Darling back story

Tom Hanks' Father:

If you were alive in 1957, and old enough to enjoy Rock and Roll, you
will probably remember the group, "The Diamonds" who had just launched
their super hit "Little Darlin' ".

For you that 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 scroll down for the new one 47 years later.

Tom Hanks father, while there is an undeniable facial relationship, is
better looking than Tom, and even better looking with age. In the
linked videos Tom Hank's father is the lead singer on the left. He
still has it!

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
