Super Diamond

Super Diamond was the featured musical act on the Late Show with David Letterman last night. You may have heard of this fantastic Neil Diamond tribute band based in San Francisco. But did you know that the cute keyboardist with the dark hair and chiseled cheek bones hails from Humboldt County?

James Terris graduated from Fortuna High. I remember him way back then as part of a late 80’s Flock of Seagulls/Cutting Crew/Tears For Fears sideways haircut group who named themselves after an ingredient in stiff hairspray (Peg…something?) I had a thing for the drummer.

Music was always James’ passion, and now it’s also his living. I’m so happy that he is able to live the creative life he dreamed of.

Here’s last night’s performance. Enjoy!

  1. Back in 1971, when my wife and I first started dating, Cracklin Rosie was one of our favorite songs to dance to. Later we decided that it must bo “our song”.I really like this version, It makes it seem fresh again.
