For Immediate Release
Statement by Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio on the Passing of #BobCrewe:
It is a sad day for not only for us but also for everyone who was touched by a man who created his legacy by doing just that … touching people’s hearts. Bob Crewe’s lyrics have meant so much, to so many, for so long, it is hard to imagine they will ever be forgotten. Bob had a way about him in life as he did in the studio, a charismatic personality, an ability to draw the best out of everyone and a limitless joy of music, art and life. The years that we spent creating music were amazing. We learned together and grew together as artists. We will never forget Bob Crewe our partner…our brother, in music and our good friend in life.
