Together with Joe Long, the men started all four in the 1960s, and became known for their compliments and falsesets. Divito and Valli have been performing together since 1954, when the band began.
During their time together, the band had four No. 1 hits, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” and “Rock Doll.”
Divido was born on June 19, 1928, in Belleville, New Jersey, the youngest of nine children. He learned how to play the guitar and started performing at the age of eight.
His last album was a series of Italian folk songs, which he recorded and released in 2006.
