Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Daisy Jones and the Six is the perfect beach read this summer. It oozes rock and roll from every page and I loved it. Told in the style of a rock documentary (ala Behind the Music) it tells the story of a talented and tempestuous female singer song writer breaking into the 1970’s rock scene. Daisy Jones is just an emerging star when she hooks up the established classic rock bank The Six. Their meteoric rise to the top of the music world is accompanied by plenty of drama and heartache. Every part of the 1970’s rock and roll lifestyle is present. The varying relationships each members of the band share are explored. There is love and there is loss. The story is fiction but the reader can’t help but put familiar faces on the various characters. Set to become a TV show next summer, this book is a sure thing for lovers of classic rock and the movie “A Star is Born”.
