The Seasons were so dominant in their era that there was a big Seasons versus Beatles popularity contest on the radio and it was neck and neck. In the Italian American community especially the Seasons rule. In the movie Goodfellas a character says of some arrogant guy, "Who does he think he is, Frankie Valli?!" Brought a smile to my face.

Indeed a sad day for us Seasonologists. If any good can come of it, hopefully this will get him a posthumous Ahmet Ertegun Award induction for 2015.

RIP Bob Crewe

RIP Don Ciccone. He was one of the Four Seasons in the mid to late '70s when they made their comeback. He was one of the three lead voices on "December 1963 (Oh What A Night)", and was also a member of the Critters (who don't yet have a page here).

Why wasn't Ciccone inducted?

Does anyone have a link to the news? I'm having trouble finding it.

dmg, we found out from Lee Shapiro's Facebook page. Lee Shapiro is another '70s Season that was not inducted, and friend to Don Ciccone.

Saw Frankie Valli and the new Four Seasons perform last night. It was one heck of a show. Didn't realize Valli was 83! Needless to say, he didn't show it one bit. When he spoke in between songs, he kind of sounded like Joe Pesci but when he sang, it was just like how he sounded on the recordings. It would have been cool had at least one of the original 4 Seasons were on stage, but Valli stole the show. Always great to see a living legend, especially one who has influenced so many.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
