March 3, 2006, Newsletter Issue #52: Four Seasons member Massi dies at 73

Tip of the Week

December 2000. Nick Massi, an original member of the Four Seasons who handled bass vocals and vocal arrangements throughout the bandīs glory days, died of cancer. He was 73. The longtime West Orange resident performed with several bands before joining Frankie Valli in a group called the Four Lovers. By 1961, the group had evolved into the Four Seasons. Massi remained with the group until 1965, when he grew tired of touring, Valli said. Massi performed on hits such as "Sherry," "Big Girls Donīt Cry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Rag Doll," which friends said was his favorite Four Seasons song. During his tenure, the group made the Billboard Top 40 chart 17 times and toured throughout the United States and overseas, melding doo-wop vocals with a contemporary beat. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
