Does anyone know the history of Tin Tin in the early 70s? I have a single called "I'm Afraid" which doesn't have writing credits from either Steve. Pete Beckett is the writer and producer. It sounds like Tin Tin but I'm wondering if either Steve was still in the group and who Pete Beckett is? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I saw Frankie Valli last year and he was pretty frail looking, although he must now be quite old. He coughed all through the show, I think from 40 years of breathing second hand lounge smoke (and maybe a smoker himself). He had no women in his band, just a bunch of very young, buff guys singing and playing in the band (probably to cut costs). But there is no denying the huge impact and impressive number of hits FV had. Dave Mirich -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
