The 1950’s Fabulous Foursome! This is a fan site of the original Diamonds of the 1950s. All  hailing from Canada, they made their way to  the U. S.,  and with their songs and energy, endeared themselves to  their fans forever.  Bill Reed, the original bass singer, who at 68, passed away October  22, 2004.  Bill's smooth bass voice was the foundation of The  Diamonds and was instrumental in establishing their signature  sound.  We are saddened at his loss, but rejoice in the privilege of  hearing him sing. Obituary  This is a fan site of the "Original" Diamonds Singing Group of the 1950s, and has been on the Internet since 1999.  Information contained in this website, is the version of events as related to me by original members: Phil Levitt, Ted Kowalski, Bill Reed and Dave Somerville. Note:  The bulk of the Diamonds' success came from their work in the United States, but they were one of many fine groups and artists that came from Canada.

As a founding member of the Diamonds,  he brought joy to the fans with his energy and his love of singing.   Obituary Fun! That was the way one fan described the  Diamonds. And who could argue? After listening  to "Little Darlin'" for the first time, it was a  foregone conclusion. It was only a little over  two minutes long, but it was fun. This fabulous  foursome of the fifties had hits such as "Little  Darlin", "The Stroll", and "Why Do Fools Fall In  Love". These were only three of 16 hits on the  Billboard Charts. Countless television shows and concerts, guest staring in a movie and singing  the theme song for two others, and being  inducted in several Halls of Fame. All this  insured their place in the history of early rock  and roll, and made them one of the most  popular groups of their time. Were they fun?  You bet they were! - Barry Worrell  Introductions to the Diamonds “Diamond Dave” Somerville. Dave is currently performing  his 1957 Rock & Roll Bus Tour.  Contact Dave for information  on how you can be included  and check his itinerary at his  site.
