Meet Reginald Parker (Guitar):
Though an accomplished musician, most female Diamond Girls might recognize Reginald Parker from his glory days as an underwear model for Sears Roebuck and Company in the 70s. Parker was introduced to music indirectly in his middle school days when he realized that several girls in the orchestra classes and theater classes , including the teachers, were hot and the boys were all “dorks”. As a freshman Parker was honored “entertainer of the year” at Angel Beach H.S (rumor has it he was “performing” for both his drama and music teachers after class – at the same time).
While pursuing a modeling career in the 80s, Parker auditioned and won the role of the original “Marlboro Man” for their major advertising campaign, but allegedly lost the part ironically because of taking too many cigarette breaks during shooting.
