Paste ??helf Awareness??ookRiotEveryone knows DAISY JONES & THE SIX, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it?s the rock?n? roll she loves most. By the time she?s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things. Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she?s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road. Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend. The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level withDaisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.Praise for Daisy Jones & The Six?Backstage intrigue is the engine of?aisy Jones & The Six. . . .

This is the story of a young, captivating singer who came of age in the late 60s/early 70s, all told as an oral history. The Six did not hit the big time until Daisy joined the band as their lead singer, but her presence brought along drama, intrigue, and a variety of tensions between herself and Billy Dunne, the leader of The Six. It?s best not to know too much about this book going into it; instead, allow the transcribed interviews from the band members (they weren?t real, but they seem real), and from those who tagged along during this great fictitious band?s run, to unspool the story for you.--Chris Schluep, Amazon Book ReviewReview?I devoured?aisy Jones & The Six?n a day, falling head over heels for it.
