The arrest of Frankie Valli:
Frankie Valli, from Newark, New Jersey, got the bug to be a singer as a young boy when he saw another New Jersey Frankie, Sinatra of Hoboken, performing at the New York Paramount.
Born Francesco Castelluccio, he's a barber's son and even worked as a barber himself until his singing career took off in the early 1960's. He'd been signing with bandmates Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi without much success since the late '50's – until songwriter Bob Gaudio joined the group. They grabbed their new name, The Four Seasons, and became a major music machine.
Frankie had a minor brush with the law in September, 1965 in Columbus, Ohio. The Four Seasons already had a series of big records and were making money but Frankie got pinched when his manager left a hotel bill unpaid in a neighboring town.
Meantime, his string of hits, with both the Four Seasons and as a solo artist, is a lot longer than any rap sheet, including "Sherry", "Walk like a Man", "Candy Girl", "Big Girls Don't Cry", "Dawn" and "Rag Doll".
His later works included "Oh What a Night", "Grease", "My Eyes Adored You" and "Can't Take my Eyes Off of You".
In fact, Frankie's career also included roles as an actor, as mobster Rusty Millio in HBO's "The Soprano's, although his character didn't have a happy ending.
Franke Valli's very successful career is celebrated in "Jersey Boys", as seen in film and on Broadway.
