Elvis Presley would have been 89 today. We thought it would be a lot of FUN to celebrate the King’s birthday here and give Elvis a cool birthday present on behalf of a big fan!

That fan is Damian Lewis 😀

Damian was Kirsty Young’s Castaway on Desert Island Discs back in November 2014:

“Up until I was about the age of 18, I thought, I was Elvis, returned, and spent a lot of my time putting shaving foam, oddly, through my hair and relentlessly coiffing my quiff, and any opportunity getting into my skinny pair of black jeans and my winklepickers and my paisley shirt from Kensington market.”

You can hear the entire podcast here and Elvis bit is at 04:34. Continue reading “Happy Birthday, Elvis Presley!”

TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2023: ‘Blues and Swing Special’ on Jazz FM

Well, it is THAT time of the year again! We have “Best of 2023” lists wherever we look: Best Books of 2023, Best Movies of 2023, Best Music of 2023 and so on… And, it is our utmost pleasure to jump on the “Best of” wagon with our TOP Damian Lewis Moments of 2023! As we take the last weeks of the year to revisit the year Damian has had personally and professionally, we very much hope to put a smile on your face.

We don’t intend to rank the top moments as many “Best of” lists do. We pick the moments in which, we believe, Damian shines as a brilliant actor, a fantastic musician, a wonderful storyteller, a true gentleman, a serious athlete or just a guy who knows to have a good time and bring them to you.

And the moment with which we kick off this year’s top moments series is from the very first day of the year!

Damian Lewis’ Blues and Swing Special’ on Jazz FM

“Hello, Jazz FM listeners! I’m Damian Lewis. I’m gonna share some of my music with you on this first day of 2023.”

Could there be a better way to start the new year than hearing your favorite artist sharing his love for his (and your) favorite music on Jazz FM on New Year’s Day?

So Lewisto and I started 2023 listening to the 2-hour “Damian Lewis Blues and Swing Special” on Jazz FM. And after 2 delicious hours of music, I put together a Spotify playlist for the fans who were not able to hear the program because of annoying zone restrictions. But since that day I have been dying to put together a post with all the songs but also with what Damian talked about when he talked about the music he loved. So… Better late than never, I guess… ENJOY!
