Damon Albarn, (born March 23, 1968 in Leytonstone, London), is an English vocalist and keyboardist who initially gained fame as the lead singer of rock band Blur. Though Blur has not disbanded, of late Albarn has been more active as a member of Gorillaz and as a solo artist.
Albarn had a long-standing relationship with Elastica frontwoman Justine Frischmann. His involvement with her profoundly influenced his songwriting in Blur in the late 1990s. "Beetlebum," opening track and chart-topping hit single from Blur, is said to be about Frischmann's heroin addiction. 13, Blur's sixth album, presents strong overtones brought about by their break-up. He now lives in Notting Hill, London with artist Suzi Winstanley, and their daughter Missy was born in 1999.
That's what the officials say.
In my opinion, he is just the hottest man alive.
