As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. When Billboard magazine published its 50th anniversary issue, we learned the Seasons were #9 in terms of number of hit songs, higher than many other well known groups (i.e., the Beach Boys).

With the huge success of Jersey Boys, a new generation is enjoying this uniquely American

music.

So, I was amused to read the Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons became popular because of Jersey Boys. This is a photo of the Seasons in their heyday (1960′s):

It is great seeing Frankie look so good, he will be 77 in May. I got to hear him in Kansas City last summer.
