Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones has launched an acoustic version of Andy Williams’s classic ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’ in tribute to fellow Welshman Gary Speed. Gary Speed was found dead at his Cheshire home aged 42 on Sunday November 27th 2011. Kelly Jones has become a friend of Gary Speed in recent months and was shocked at the news of his untimely death so he decided to record this fine version which you can view right here on Music Scene. Kelly Jones broke off from working on new material with the band in Brussels to record his acoustic version of this song.
This song became an adopted anthem of Welsh football fans during Speed’s playing career with Wales after being used in a BBC Wales promo for the 1994 World Cup qualifying campaign.
