buzzy show daisy jones and the six — about the rise and fall of a fictional band from the ’70s on Amazon Prime — contains several blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Easter eggs. One of the best ones includes the guitar strap that was used by some of the biggest names in music at the time.
At the start of the series, Daisy (actress Riley Keough, granddaughter of Elvis), performs an acoustic song titled “Two Against Three” at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. It’s just another guitar of his, but if you look closely you can recognize the distinctive pattern on his guitar strap.
It’s the same one her grandfather used in his iconic ’68 comeback special. Here they are side by side.
Another music legend also wore the strap at a different iconic performance – Woodstock. Jimi Hendrix famously donned the accessory while wailing over the national anthem.
You know who else wore it? None other than the living pop legend Harry Styles.
The strap shows how the show’s producers definitely did their research, and it’s also a cool way to honor music legends from the past.
While the show is based on a fictional band, it is based on a novel of the same name by author Taylor Jenkins Reed. Keough told Collider that the most important thing about portraying the fictional Daisy was knowing her origins.
“I think what was most important to me was figuring out where she begins and where she ends, her arc, who she is, and what kind of girl she is when we first meet her, versus At the end when she becomes this different version of Daisy. And I was most nervous about the musical because we didn’t sing, Sam [Claflin] And me, before, of course. This made me nervous. But by the end of rehearsal, I felt really proud of us. I feel like we really worked, we were able to play live, and we looked good. I felt happy about it.”
