Biography

1 )Four Seasons aka The 4 Seasons.

2) Four Seasons is a J-Pop/Animé musical group from Japan.

1) The 4 Seasons, (later known as Frankie Valli & The 4 Seasons), were an American pop group, distinct from many similar groups of the early to mid-1960s in their traditional Italian-American sound. They also had a sound somewhat reminiscent of doo wop, but they were not known to be a doo wop quartet. By the later 1960s became an internationally famous rock and roll group.

Originally known as “The Four Lovers”, they were formed in 1961 with Frankie Valli as the lead singer, Bob Gaudio on keyboards/tenor vocals, Tommy DeVito on lead guitar/baritone vocals and Nick Massi on bass guitar/bass vocals who was replaced in 1965 by Joe Long on bass guitar/bass vocals.

Frankie Valli and Tommy DeVito previously performed with Nick DeVito (Tommy’s twin brother) and Hank Majewski as The Four Lovers. The Four Seasons released their first hit, “Sherry,” in 1962. Under the guidance of producer/songwriter Bob Crewe, The Four Seasons followed up “Sherry” with several well-remembered hits, including “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Dawn”, “Walk Like a Man”, “Candy Girl” and “Save It for Me”. Nick Massi left the Four Seasons in 1965 and was replaced by Joe Long, who became the mainstay on bass and backup vocals until 1976. Several more Top 10 singles followed, including “Let’s Hang On”, “Working My Way Back To You”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “C’mon Marianne”; but by late 1967, the group’s popularity was deteriorating, as public interest moved towards rock with a harder edge and more socially conscious lyrics.

    Too bad my scrobbler iTunes plugin never picks up what I play, because these guys could really rip out a tune. So much for Brits being hip!
