Tommy DeVito, founding member of the Four Seasons, has died from COVID-19 at age 92
Tommy DeVito, known for being a founding member of the Four Seasons, the group that inspired the widely successful musical “Jersey Boys,” has died from COVID-19 complications at the age of 92. DeVito passed away in Las Vegas where he had been hospitalized at 9:45 Monday night, according to a  Facebook post from a close friend . Group members of the Four Seasons, Frank Valli and Bob Gaudio also posted a statement expressing their condolences: The fourth of the original four members, Nick Massi, died in 2000. The Four Seasons, a rock and doo-wop group active during the ’60s, were known for hit songs like “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, and “Walk Like a Man.” Devito supplied the up-tempo lead guitar and baritone vocals. DeVito and his bandmates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. The Four Seasons saw revitalized success with the development of the 2005 release of the musical “Jersey Boys.” A rags-to-riches story about four boys from New Jersey, the show ran on Broadway until 2017, collecting accolades and bringing the Four Seasons back into the public consciousness. The youngest of nine children, DeVito was born June 19, 1928, in Belleville, New Jersey. DeVito taught himself how to play the guitar and quit school at grade eight to start pursuing a professional music career. DeVito eventually began a group called the Variety Trio with his twin brother, Nick, and Hank Majewski. After Frankie Valli joined the group, they became the Four Lovers and then, after Gaudio joined, the Four Seasons. DeVito left the group in April 1970.

'Jesus of Siberia' arrested by Russian troops is ex-traffic cop who led cult for 30 years
A cult leader claiming to be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ has been arrested in Siberia, Russia’s Investigative Committee says, and charged with various crimes. Sergei Torop, a 59-year-old former Red Army conscript who goes by the name Vissarion, allegedly subjected members of his sect to psychological and physical violence. He also faces charges of organizing an illegal religious organization, the Guardian reports . For the last 30 years, Torop has been living as a pseudo-diety surrounded by thousands of followers across multiple settlements. People from around Russia and the world have flocked to Siberia to meet the false idol. The arrest operation consisted of dozens of troops from the Russian National Guard and four helicopters. Special Spetsnaz officers with machine guns were seen on the cult’s land, wearing masks. Two other members of the cult, known as the Church of the Last Testament, were also arrested, including a former Soviet-era boy band drummer called Vadim Redkin. If convicted, they face up to 12 years in prison. Torop was arrested at the so-called ‘Sun City’ camp, a village about 4,100 kilometres east of Moscow. He is being held in custody until Nov. 22 in Novosibirsk, Siberia’s largest city, located some 3,200 kilometres east of Moscow. Torop has denied claims made against him, according to the Daily Mail , saying he’d never seen some of the alleged victims, and adding that others among his accusers are known for causing trouble and complaining. His family is now left behind to fend for themselves, he lamented. “I live in the taiga (tundra), on the land,” Torop said. “There I have a wife and three small children, underaged children. It will now be very very hard for them.” The Church of the Last Testament was founded by Torop in 1991 after he lost his job as a traffic officer and had an awakening, he told the Guardian in 2002. “I am not God,” Torop said. And it is a mistake to see Jesus as God. But I am the living word of God the father. Everything that God wants to say, he says through me.” Torop says there are about 5,000 members of the cult in total, all of whom are prohibited from smoking or drinking. He says God sent him to Earth to educate man about the evils of war and the impact that humans have on the environment.
