Happy Birthday Chris Isaak!
Rock ‘n’ roll singer and sometimes actor who sang “Wicked Game” and “Blue Hotel.” He released the #7 charting Heart Shaped World in 1989.
He grew up listening to Elvis and Roy Orbison records, which later inspired his own music.
He uses a one-of-a-kind Gibson guitar to perform.
His mother Dorothy was a potato chip factory worker and his father, Joe Isaak, was a forklift driver.
Isaak’s songs “Gone Ridin'” and “Livin’ for Your Lover” were both featured in David Lynch’s movie Blue Velvet.
