Sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll has arrived to the small screen with the TV adaption of Daisy Jones & the Six – a New York Times best-selling novel and one of Reese Witherspoon’s book club picks.

The musical-drama series follows the story of the iconic 1970s band called The Six, fronted by two feuding yet charismatic lead singers, Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne.

Drawn together by personal and artistic chemistry, their complicated musical partnership catapulted the band from obscurity to unbelievable fame – before they suddenly called it quits.

Set to the soundtrack of original music from Daisy Jones & the Six (which you can listen to now here) – the series tells the story of how an iconic band imploded at the height of its powers.

Is Daisy Jones & The Six based on a true story?

While Daisy Jones & The Six is a work of fiction, the story was loosely based on the exploits of Fleetwood Mac, who are known for the many intricacies of their relationships as members of the band.

In particular, it was the relationship between former lovers and long-time bandmates Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham that author Taylor Jenkins Reid was inspired by.

“I kept coming back to that moment when Lindsey watched Stevie sing ‘Landslide’,” she wrote for Hello Sunshine. “How it looked so much like two people in love. And yet, we’ll never truly know what lived between them.”

“I wanted to write a story about that, about how the lines between real life and performance can get blurred, about how singing about old wounds might keep them fresh,” Taylor added.
