Legs Diamond
« on: December 02, 2017, 02:47:10 AM »
Here is another band that I'm surprised isn't more widely known and recognized and I'm not sure why, other than maybe they changed their sound and direction a few bands, but there's not THAT many bands that haven't.

Legs Diamond formed in Los Angeles, California in 1975 and released their self titled debut album in 1977. they went on to release two more albums through 1978 and then broke up in 1980. The band reformed four years later in 1984 and have released six more albums since, the most recent of which was Diamond Are Forever in 2006. Lead vocalist front man Rick Sanford left the band in 2005 and was replaced by ex Montrose and Wild horses vocalist John Levesque. The band still plays occasional gigs in the Los Angeles area and in Texas. Original members in the current lineup are Roger Romeo (guitar), Michael Prince (keyboards, rhythm guitar), and Jeff Poole (drums).

Current members:
John Levesque: lead vocals (2005-present)
Roger Romeo: lead guitars (1975-80, 1984-present)
Michael Prince: keyboards, rhythm guitar (1975-80, 1984-present)
Adam Kury: bass guitar (1992-present)
Jeff Poole: drums (1975-80, 1984-present)

Former members:
Rick Sanford: lead vocals (1976-80, 1984- 2005)
Michael "Diamond" Gargano: bass guitar
Mike Christie: bass guitar
Jim May: lead guitar and vocals
Jonathon Valen: drums

 I'm gonna link several songs from these guys, they have some really cool and catchy tunes. Great stuff.
