Just like how Lydia Tár is not a real composer, the new Amazon Prime original series, Daisy Jones & The Six, is not about an actual rock band. However, you'll feel convinced this show is based on real-life musicmakers, thanks to the power of its story, adapted from Taylor Jenkins Reid's bestselling novel of the same name.
Daisy Jones & The Six follows the fictional rise and eventual disbandment of a ’70s rock group who love, argue and jam out in a chaotic dynamic that will remind viewers of the lore surrounding Fleetwood Mac. (Unsurprisingly, Reid's book was inspired by the Fleetwood Mac albums she listened to growing up.)
But, because there are no real-life figures to act as the show's basis, the story is able to run free without viewers having to worry about historical accuracy or a proper portrayal of their beloved musical icons. And based on the first episode, this miniseries is a breezy, intriguing journey, buoyed by powerful performances from leads Riley Keough, Camila Morrone and Sam Claflin. Keep reading to see why Daisy Jones & The Six is a must-watch for music lovers.
