Daisy Jones and the Six

(1 customer review)

£12.99

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 onstage at the Whisky, their lives 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.

1 review for Daisy Jones and the Six

  1. Penny Carter-Francis

    Adored this fabulous book.

    Daisy is born into a enviable family, she wants for nothing. Except her parents live & attention. She’s talented and boy can she sing.

    The Six – A band made up of friends and family. They get a record deal and enjoy the ‘high-life’ that drugs and being in your beings. Billy heads off to Rehab.

    Daisy meets The Six and they make the album of the 70’s and then, they break up – But why?

    Music, sex, drugs, music – true 70’s friendship, love, frailty, approval, revenge and truce.

    Buy it, read it!!
