Do you know Clint Eastwood?
How well do you know Clint Eastwood?
He has that silent stare and that grizzled look; tough-as-nails and a man of few words. He takes the law into his own hands, even if that is what it takes to right a wrong.
This was the persona Clint Eastwood often portrayed in movies, whether as a gun-toting pastor, an ex-Marine, a Texas ranger, or a lawman. But aside from being a film actor, Clint is world renowned as a director, producer and composer. But he is really more than all these.
Clint did not get there without a struggle. From his humble beginnings to his rise into a legendary icon, there is really more to Clint Eastwood than meets the eye.
Who would ever think that Clint Eastwood, the cowboy and Dirty Harry had singing abilities. He demonstrated this talent in "Paint Your Wagon" and made a hit with "Burning Bridges," the soundtrack to Kelly's Heroes. He also sang duets with Merle Haggard in "Barroom Buddies" and "Beers to You" with Ray Charles in "Any Which Way You Can." This was before he developed a gravely voice in later years.
The piano is where Clint finds comfort and shows his passion for piano blues and jazz. His music always played a special part in his movies.
Clint the wrote theme songs for his own movies as in "Unforgiven", "A Perfect World", "The Bridges fo Madison County", and "Absolute Power."
Eastwood took to the stage in 1997 in Carnegie Hall with an all-star ensemble of jazz musicians. The performance was called Eastwood After Hours Live a Carnegie Hall.
