On November 17, 1942, Bob Gaudio, “the kid who plays like a madman–and he writes songs”–was born! We wish musical genius, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, Songwriters Hall of Fame member, and Grammy Award-winner Bob Gaudio a very Happy 67th Birthday today!!

Happy Birthday and thank you to Bob Gaudio for creating the greatest music for five incredible decades–from “Short Shorts” to “Jersey Babys”!!

  3. Happy Birthday Bob Gaudio!
    As a writer I appreciate your lyrics, especially the memories they bring while growing up in the Stephen Crane Village.
    I wanted to say hello to you at the Jersey Boys preview in New York, but I didn’t want to interrupt the converation you were having with the “Accidentals”
    group, of which Ray Chambers was a founding member.

    All The Best!

  6. Happy Birthday, Bob! Thanks for the countless hours of musical enjoyment. I met you and the rest of the JB cast on your birthday four years ago. Now the JB album is Platinum, “Jersey Boys” is all over the world playing to sold-out audiences, and you haven’t aged a bit! Who could have imagined?

  8. Belated birthday greetings to you Bob, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Your kindness has always remained a fundamental measure to me, of goodwill between artists, in my life, as a songwriter and singer. May that kindness lead you to further success.
