The Vocal Group Hall of Fame has said that “The Four Seasons” were the most popular rock ‘n roll band before The Beatles. Our special guest on this episode of The Paul Leslie Hour is Bob Gaudio— songwriter, record producer, and former keyboard player and vocalist for The Four Seasons. Bob Gaudio is perhaps best known for his songwriting. He wrote “Sherry” the first #1 hit for The Four Seasons along with “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” and others. Through the years, Bob Gaudio’s songs have been recorded by other artists like Nina Simone, Peabo Bryson, Roberta Flack, Barry Manilow, The Temptations, Diana Ross and Frank Sinatra. In 1995 Gaudio was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
