What Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid is about:
Written as an oral history of the fictional band, Daisy Jones & The Six, this novel takes readers on a journey through the seventies rock’n roll music scene.
Daisy Jones is a wild child who spends her nights in clubs on the Sunset Strip and dreams of singing at the Whisky a Go Go.
Billy Dunne is the lead singer of The Six, with a wife and baby at home and a history of drug and alcohol abuse.
Both Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne find success as solo and band acts respectively, but it isn’t until a producer brings them together, and creates Daisy Jones and The Six, that their fame really takes off.
