Daisy Jones and The Six (Hardback)Taylor Jenkins Reid (author)
- Sold out
A mesmeric novel of fame, love, music and what happens when luck runs out and the lights go down, Daisy Jones & The Six tells the story of the stratospheric rise of a band whose sound defined an era and whose sudden, cataclysmic split left a trail of unanswered questions in its wake. Intoxicatingly written, with a cast of characters to instantly fall for, it’s a nostalgia-fuelled trip into the heady world of 70's L.A. at its hedonistic peak.
For a while, Daisy Jones & The Six were everywhere. Their albums were on every turntable, they sold out arenas from coast to coast, their sound defined an era. And then, on 12 July 1979, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now.
They were lovers and friends and brothers and rivals. They couldn't believe their luck, until it ran out. This is their story of the early days and the wild nights, but everyone remembers the truth differently.
The only thing they all know for sure is that from the moment Daisy Jones walked barefoot, on to the stage at the Whisky, the band were irrevocably changed. Making music is never just about the music. And sometimes it can be hard to tell where the sound stops and the feelings begin.
