Bob Gaudio Biography

Bob wrote his first hit, "Who Wears Short Shorts," at 15, for the Royal Teens then went on to become a founding member of the Four Seasons and the band’s principal songwriter. He also produced the hit "You Don’t Bring Me Flowers" for Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand (Grammy nomination, Record of the Year), as well as six albums for Diamond, including The Jazz Singer. Other producing credits include albums for Frank Sinatra, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, and the soundtrack for the film of Little Shop of Horrors. Several songs co-written with Bob Crewe have been cover hits for such artists as the Tremeloes ("Silence Is Golden") and the Walker Brothers ("The Sun Ain`t Gonna Shine Anymore") Lauren Hill ("Can’t Take My Eyes Off You"). With his wife, Judy Parker, Gaudio produced and co-wrote the Who Loves You album for the Four Seasons, and one of Billboard’s longest-charted singles (54 weeks), "Oh, What A Night."

A highpoint in his career came in 1990, when, as a member of the original Four Seasons, Gaudio was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In 1995, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, which hailed him as "a quintessential music-maker." To this day, Bob Gaudio and Frankie Valli still maintain their partnership…on a handshake
