TOM HANKS FATHER A MOTOWN SINGER IN THE GROUP "THE DIAMONDS"
Those of you who like Motown music do you remember the group called The Diamonds. They are known for the song Little Darlin.

Tom Hanks Sr. was the lead singer in 1957 and is/was still the lead singer in 2004.

Here is a video of The Diamonds singing Little Darlin in 1957 and another video of 2004. Tom Hanks Sr. is the tall man on the left.

He has aged very well....much better then his son Tom Hanks Jr.

While watching the video link, the lead singer did look a lot like what I figured Tom Hanks dad would look like...there seemed (to me) to have a lot of facial similarities .

Have a great night.....

Tom Hanks grew up in the northern part of California, the bay area living with his father and Sacramento, plus he spent summers at his mother Janet's home here in my town of Red Bluff, California. His dad was a chef (according to IMDb) and has a different first name than Tom.

I've never seen Tom Hanks in Red Bluff, but we always know when he's been in our town of 15,000 people. I have seen his mother a lot due her living down the street from my daycare provider.

I think Tom Hanks is a wonderful man and just love his wife Rita...and not cause they hung out in Red Bluff...they are just nice people.

On first glance, I thought this thread read, Tom Hanks fathers a Motown singer in the group "the diamonds"..... But Hanks was born around 1956 confused rolling on the floor laughing

scold Galrad, okay so you say Tom Hanks Jr. was born around 1956.

Putting aside that Snopes said it's an urban myth, why is it impossible that his father and mother played house in 1955 and Jr. was born in 1956.dunno
