Bob Gaudio (born 17 November 1942) is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer born in the Bronx, New York. He shot to musical fame at the age of 15 as a member of the Royal Teens when he co-wrote the hit "Short Shorts". Further success eluded him for several years until he met Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi, all from Newark, New Jersey, forming the group that became the Four Seasons. Gaudio played keyboards and wrote the Seasons' first hit, "Sherry", in 1962. Read more about Bob Gaudio on Last.fm.
