Franki Valli and The Four Seasons may not have invented doowop or rock n roll, but they were right there at its inception. Beginning with the groups first big hit, "Sherry," Vallis falsetto vocals gave a definitive edge to the doowoppers who were then part of the R&B tradition. At the beginning of their career, The Four Seasons had only one rival in America – The Beach Boys. Two years later, they withstood the entire British Revolution and scored six Top 20 hits in that historical year of 1964. In January, 1990, The Four Seasons were recognized for their impacts on popular music, with the induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along such other classic acts as the Who and The Four Tops.
In fact, during a career that has spanned over three decades, and which is now entering its fourth, the singer and his group have recorded a string of hits that plays like a virtual soundtrack to the 60s, 70s and 80s, making Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons one of the most long lived and successful groups in history.
"Big Girls Dont Cry," "Walk Like A Man," "Sherry" (one of the fastest rising chart toppers ever), "Rag Doll," "Cant Take My Eyes Off of You," "My Eyes Adore You," "Swearin to God," "December 63 Oh What A Night," "Grease," With his distinctive three-octave range and incomparable falsetto, Valli has powered those songs and dozens more to the top of the charts worldwide, selling over 80 million records along the way.
