Married 3 times.
Born in Newark, New Jersey, USA
Known for his High-pitched, falsetto singing style.
Elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of The Four Seasons) in 1990.
The Broadway musical, "Jersey Boys", about the beginnings of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons were awarded 4 Tony Awards in 2006 including Best Original Musical, Best Actor (John Lloyd Young), Best Actor in a Featured Role (Christian Hoff), and Best Lighting Design in a Musical.
When The Four Seasons finally made it, their age was something of an embarrassment. They were a good ten years older than The Beach Boys. The record companies thought no teenagers would listen to a band in their thirties. Valli was 28 when "Sherry" became a hit, and the record company thought it would be better if he were considered 25, so his age was changed. But his real age and birth date (1934) were on the back of the Four Lovers album. Then, when the Four Seasons were arrested in Columbus, Ohio for not paying for the hotel rooms the prior year, Valli's mug shot became public, and based on his driver's license and police record, it became obvious that he was born in 1934.
