At his age, I am a little concerned…

Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons shows for this week are all postponed. It was revealed in a social media post that the Newark native has the flu and needs to rest. The group was scheduled to perform Thursday night at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank. The show is now rescheduled for Nov. 29.

I may advise against him continuing, or may not....but what I do know is many people will always strive to be productive, to give to others, to do what they do or something else more feasible. This drive for most is much stronger than the need/desire for money itself. I am always inspired by those who never stop or quit.

Neil Diamond, for one, was putting out his best stuff (imho) into his 70s, up until 2014´s "Melody Road", after which in 2018 he was diagnosed with Parkinson´s and retired.

And many others.

Vinnie, you hit the nail on the head. Me, my husband and my best friend Bev all went to see Frankie at the Palace Theater in downtown Cleveland, Ohio last year. At that time they had to practically wheel him out on a dolly and stand him up. He never moved from the spot while his backup singers all danced around him. Actually, the show was good, even though I was told afterwards he lip synced the whole time. Oh well..they say ignorance is bliss...but it was a sold out show, so I didn't feel as duped.

It's still good entertainment from a great artist  who is there in person and wants the sound just right at all costs.
