AUDIO: The Four Seasons' Frankie Valli and Gerry Polci (1977)

John Tobler, Rock's Backpages Audio, 1977

First we hear from Frankie: the process of his leaving the Seasons; his solo career and his chronic ear problem; the anonymity of the other members and Frankie's plans for post-Seasons life. Then we hear from Gerry: being recruited into the band; singing lead on 'December '63 (Oh What A Night)'; making the Helicon album... and Bob Gaudio's role as writer and producer.
