The Original Jersey Boys: Frankie Valli and Frankie DePaula

The original JERSEY BOYS: Frankie Valli (left) and Frankie DePaula captured sometime in the late 1960s. Valli, who was born Francesco Castelluccio in Newark, NJ, is of course the legendary singer of the Four Seasons and subject of the successful Broadway musical 'Jersey Boys', while the deceased DePaula, a native of Jersey City, NJ, was the subject of my book 'Jersey Boy: The Life and Mob Slaying of Frankie DePaula'.
