THE AUTHORIZED WEBSITE OF THE CORAL AND MERCURY DIAMONDS (1955-1962). CERTIFIED BY TEDD KOWALSKI AND MIKE DOUGLAS AS 100% ACCURATE

From the Quill of Mike Douglas

Mike Douglas speaks about The Diamonds.

Phil Levitt asked Tedd Kowalski to join his singing group. When Phil asked Tedd to join, he didn't realise he had hit the mother lode of The Diamonds.From Tedd's"Original Original" group of "The Four Diamonds" (Kowalski~Douglas~Danko and Reed). Tedd first delivered himself ...........100%. He also delivered Bill Reed. He delivered Mike Douglas who replaced Phil Levitt upon his retirement in 1957. Oh yes, let us not forget the name. Tedd absolutely delivered "The Four Diamonds"

*************************************************************************************************************

The Original Original Four Diamonds ~ The quartet was formed by Tedd Kowalski and Mike Douglas in the spring of 1953 at Toronto, Ontario,Canada.
The personnel consisted of:
Tedd Kowalski,Mike Douglas, Bill Reed,Bob Danko.
This was a active quartet that got together a couple of times a week trying their best to sound as good as The Four Lads,The Four Aces,The Mills Brothers etc. These rehearsals continued for several months.
Singing was put on the back burner in the fall of 1953 when Tedd Kowalski announced his enrolment at The University Of Toronto.
It was essentially that separation that resulted in the breakup of.........The Original Original
Four Diamonds...... so you see the original original Four Diamonds did not form under a rock - we were born to rock and roll!
