Frankie Valli is the name we all came to know.
He was born Francis Castellucio.
Born in 1937, in Newark, New Jersey,
Frankie would become a well-known music celebrity.
He started his musical career in the mid-fifties.
It continued well into the sixties and seventies.
His groups would have many different name variations
until 1960, when they became “The Four Seasons”
With Tommy DeVito, Bob Gaudio, and Nick Massi,
they had a big 1962 hit song with “Sherry”.
“Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Rag Doll”, “Walk Like A Man”, and “Let’s Hang On”,
were joined by “Opus 17”, “Big Man in Town”, and “Dawn”.
“Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” was a hit among many,
along with “My Eyes Adored You”, “December ‘63”,
“Who Loves You”, “Swearin’ to God” and “Grease” that would come later.
Very few other groups would have success that proved greater.
As a solo performer, he puts on a fine display.
His fabulous career continues right up to today.
