    I never could undertsand why the Four Seasons would ever be successful without Frankie Valli. I don't think they would be. But the group with Frankie is a mix for good music. I must say that Frankie Valli was the reason why they made it as big as they did. He brought plenty of kick to the songs and a distinguished element to the table. My favorite song has to be "Sherry." I liked the tune and beat as well as the orginization of the entire piece of work. Overall, Frankie was a good singer and a very distinct one at that. Thank you.moreless
