"I wasn't a big fan of the music that came out of the '60s 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 50's and 60's.

"I was brought up during the 40's and 50's 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".
