Diamond, Slim & Pistol
Diamond, Slim & Pistol feature the talents of two giants in the Australian rockabilly scene, ‘Diamond’ Doug Wilshire and ‘Slim’ Tim Collett.
Both have made a massive contribution as performers and able songwriters, with careers spanning back to the late 1980s in iconic acts such as The Convertibles, The Chrome Daddies and The Jaguars. Tim is currently performing with A Band Called Twang and Doug with The Three Loaders.
In their 30 year careers, they have both performed throughout Australia and overseas, until recently when their paths crossed and they started performing together. Together, the result was something special. Bouncing favourite tunes back and forth they found they had a natural vocal harmony and their technical prowess and personalities seemed to fit seamlessly.
The band is rounded off with the addition of ‘Pistol’ Pete Green on stand-up drums. Pete is currently performing with Roots Country outfit ‘Pine Mountain Cartel’ and he and he has one of the most discerning rockabilly ears in the scene.
You can check this exciting new trio out when they make their debut public performance at GreazeFest.
