Description
Everyone knows their songs. Few know their story. Named for a bowling alley that refused to book them, The Four Seasons--Frankie, Tommy, Bob, and Nick--were high school dropouts who emerged from New Jersey to become true American Idols: one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time.With a shiny doo-wop sound highlighted by lead singer Frankie Valli's stratospheric falsetto, they wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds, and sold 175 million records worldwide--all before they were thirty. Jersey Boys, Broadway's 2006 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical, is the electrifying tale of the Seasons' rise; of the moment when they realized their sound; their breakout with "Sherry," becoming a sensation on American Bandst∧ of riding the rocket of success against the irrisistible pull of the Jersey mob and the old neighborhood. Like the show itself, this gorgeous, full-color companion book captures the magic and the original excitement of the band's life and times through all-new interviews with the band members. It also features the show's unabridged libretto; interviews with the show's cast, writers, and direct∨ and over 200 photos from the band members' personal collections and rarely seen memorabilia. For anyone who's ever sung along or danced to "Oh, What a Night!," Walk Like a Man," or "Big Girls Don't Cry," and for those just discovering the timeless sound of The Four Seasons,Jersey Boysis the ultimate keepsake.
