When Diamond emerges from his basement studio in Brooklyn to greet me, he certainly looks the part of the quintessential classic-era rocker, with a shaggy, side swept blonde coif and a relaxed, bright-eyed air. The absence of any obvious references to the disco period may be dumae to its abrupt end, which for Diamond signaled both professional and personal turmoil. His involvement with disco was serendipitous to begin with, beginning with a summer job in the shipping department of a midtown Manhattan recording studio called Media Sound.
When fall rolled around, Diamond opted to stay instead of returning to school, putting him next in line to make the leap from packing up reel-to-reels to assisting in the studio. I want to make records. All the time. I was like 14, 15, I was this little kid. But they would listen to me, because whatever, I was there! Want to come over? Jimmy was in this band Five Dollar Shoes with Gregg.
Gregg met Steve because they both played with Jobriath. So we had this song hanging around for about a year. Andrea True knew Gregg and would come over to the house all the time. One of the guys that I know here has a studio. Do you have anything up there I could sing on?
Then we edited it, cleaned it up and put a bunch of reverb on it so it has that big effect. We come back to New York, Gregg hooked up with some lawyer that he knew, they shopped it around, and every label in New York passed on this record. One of the guys we talked to in that time was Art Kass, a very smart guy who had a record company called Buddah Records.
It took like eight months to get into the top Gregg met Luther during the Andrea True sessions down in Philly. We were pioneers in the beginning, and we were doing it together. You were the little brother in the equation. Do you think the age difference played into that? He would go to the art meeting, and leave my name out of a couple places. Aside from that, we were having a blast. Gregg rented a Lear jet, we all went down to Florida together, brought all our girlfriends, we would hang out, go to the beach.
