The Elvis Connections in Prime Video’s ‘Daisy Jones & the Six’

NOTE: This article is 7 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Prime Video’s ‘Daisy Jones and the Six,’ adapted from Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestselling novel, takes viewers on a captivating journey through the rise and fall of a 1970s folk rock band. To authentically depict the era, the show’s crew meticulously researched and recreated iconic locations and fashion. A significant Easter egg in the series pays tribute to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, which may go unnoticed by many viewers.

Riley Keough, who portrays the titular Daisy Jones, is Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, but the show’s connection to the King doesn’t stop there. Costume designer Denise Wingate weaves in subtle nods to Elvis, including a patterned guitar strap identical to the one Elvis wore during his 68 Comeback Special. Interestingly, Keough confirmed to BuzzFeed that the guitar Daisy uses throughout the series is her own, adding a personal touch to the homage.

‘Daisy Jones and the Six’ delves into the turbulent lives of a group of musicians who, despite their chart-topping success, grapple with drug abuse, forbidden romance, and internal strife, ultimately leading to the band’s disintegration. The show’s narrative unfolds through a series of present-day interviews with the now-older band members, revealing previously untold aspects of their tumultuous journey.

In addition to the guitar strap, the wardrobe department incorporated other Elvis-inspired elements. Wingate, in an interview with People Magazine, mentioned two long coats created by a designer who made jumpsuits for Elvis in the 70s. These beautiful, custom-made pieces are also worn by Keough in the series.

‘Daisy Jones and the Six’ is available for streaming exclusively on Prime Video.
