Four Seasons’ founder Tommy DeVito has sadly passed away at the age of 92. The star died from complications caused by the novel coronavirus disease.


According to Tommy DeVito’s friend, Alfredo Nittoli, the musician passed away on Monday, September 21, 2020. The “Casino” actor shared on Facebook that the singer died at a Las Vegas hospital at 9:45 p.m.

Sharing an image of DeVito, Nittoli explained that he wrote his social media message with “deep regret.” The singer’s friend shared that the star’s daughter, Darcel, had informed him that there would be a service for the late musician in New Jersey.

Four Seasons frontman Frankie Valli and keyboardist Bob Gaudio released a joint Twitter statement after DeVito's death. In a heartfelt post the bandmates stated:


“It is with great sadness that we report that Tommy DeVito, a founding member of the Four Seasons, has passed."

They both also sent their love to the late star’s family. Valli and Gaudio also shared that he would be missed by those who loved him.


DeVito, his brother, Nick DeVito, Valli, and Hank Majewski was the original Four Seasons founders. They were originally known as the Variety Trio, before changing to The Variatones after Valli was added.


"Jersey Boys" spent eleven years on Broadway and had four national tours.

They later called themselves the Four Lovers before settling on the Four Seasons. Valli and DeVito remained as the core members while others fell off over the years.

The band eventually found success with their single, "Sherry." They later released other big tracks like "Walk Like a Man," "Dawn," "Big Girls Don't Cry," and many more.


Throughout the 1960s, the band released hit song after hit song. They were so good that they were on the same level as the Beach Boys with regards to chart-topping songs.



DeVito stayed with the band until 1970. In 1990, he and his band members were eventually inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


The late singer also starred on Broadway’s “Jersey Boys,” a play that chronicled the rise of the Four Seasons. It spent eleven years on Broadway and had four national tours.



Other celebrities who have lost their lives to COVID-19 this year include Bruce Williamson, Nick Cordero, Tom Seaver, and Herman Cain. Stars like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Elizabeth Warren are some of the people who’ve also lost loved ones to the virus.

Other celebrities have caught the virus but managed to survive it. Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson both had COVID-19 but managed to recover from it after suffering from various symptoms.
