After directing the film version of the Jersey Boys, Clint Eastwood admits he was never a fan of the Four Seasons music. Estwood, 84, said he was never the admirer of the music of the 60s’.
“I wasn’t a big fan of the music that came out of the Sixties but I think the Four Seasons did some great stuff. ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’ was probably the closest thing to a classic song that came out of the Fifties and Sixties.
“I was brought up during the Forties and Fifties music-wise, when you had the great singers – the men were Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Billy Eckstine and the women were Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn and Peggy Lee. You were just used to great singers,” he said.
Eastwood, who played Rowdy Yates in the TV Western series, which ran from 1959 to 1965, said: “That was one way of doing it without it being distracting.”
