Chris Isaak Never Had A Wife And He Doesn’t Regret His Bachelor Life
In one of the most influential love songs, 'Wicked Games,' Chris Isaak mournfully sang about how he doesn't want to fall in love. Given the famous American singer's relationship history, it seems that he meant it.
Isaak, who has made a name for himself singing songs of heartaches, unfaithful girlfriends, and broken relationships, has never been married.
The 64-year-old singer says that the longest relationship he's ever had was with his band, Silvertone.
Silvertone Is Chris Isaak's Longest Relationship
As an artist engrossed with writing and recording music and even occasionally acting, he never found time to invest in a partner or family.
Isaak mentioned the longest relationship he has been in is with Silvertone, his band. Isaak churned out several of his successful albums with Silvertone ever since the band started gaining traction in the early 80s.
With such a long and endearing association with his band, the singing sensation attributes much of his success to his bandmates: Kenney Dale Johnson, Rowland Salley, and Hershel Yatovitz.
On his website, Isaak acknowledged his musical companions for their support, saying he was lucky to have them as a team.
People see my picture on the album covers and think, 'Chris goes into a room and he makes an album.' But I go into a room and make it with these guys, who've been supportive and have good ideas and good energy.
Chris Isaak Has A Lovely Dog For A Companion Instead Of A Wife
By the looks of it, the Chris Isaak wife experience has yet to leave the station. However, Isaak has admitted to having thought about settling down with a wife and having kids previously in interviews.
When talking with Independent, the singer further suggested that he was still without a family because of his work ethic. However, he did not regret his choice and is okay with how he is.
I never married a supermodel and divorced her, never got into cocaine and rehab, never bought a jet plane or a racehorse or boat. I'm happy with my choices. And I don't think I have had any more bad luck in my relationships than anyone else. I just whine about it more.
Isaak has also compared kids to sailboats saying that they are "like sailboats, they look good on a sunny day and in the distance, but they require a lot of maintenance."
Instead of a wife and children accompanying him at concerts or supporting him in his musical journey, the 'Wicked Game' singer has a dog named Rodney, who is as good a companion as any man or woman.
In fact, on the occasion of Valentine's day last year, he shared a photo of himself with Rodney sharing a box of chocolate with the caption 'Happy Valentine's Day. The furry little dog also accompanies Isaak in shows, as can be seen in multiple Instagram posts.
Rodney, who, upon first glance, seems like a puppy, however, is already 18-years-old. Even Isaak is shocked by how well the pet dog has maintained itself.
Chris Isaak Has No Plans Of Retiring Anytime Soon
Isaak's first studio album came out in 1985, and since then has released nine albums, twelve singles, while also bagging two Grammy nominations. With over three-and-a-half-decades worth of experience up his sleeve, Isaak shows no sign of letting up.
When asked about whether he had any plans of retiring soon by northjersey.com, the singer answered that he had no such plans.
Isaak's latest album First Comes The Night is set to release on November 13, 2021. The album will be produced by Paul Worley. Dave Cobb, and Mark Needham.
