“Her characters feel so vividly real, you’ll wish you could stream their albums, YouTube their concerts, and google their wildest moments to see them for yourself.”

 

NO MAJOR SPOILERS

This is the fictional story of a rock and roll band from the 1970’s. It is the story of Billy Dunne, lead singer and leader of an up and coming rock and roll band called the Six, and it is the story of Daisy Jones, a young, beautiful and sexy young girl who can sing her heart out.

They are destined to come together and create incredible music. It is the story of the demons they have in their lives, drugs, sex, ego, jealousy and creativity amongst so many other things and when they do come together it appears that all their dreams will come true.

Anybody who grew up loving rock n roll from the late 60’s to mid 70’s will love this book. It is written in the style of the making of a documentary about the band. It will bring back all those memories of those bands that had that big hit, exploded onto the music scene, and just as quickly came apart at the seams. All the things that break up music groups is here, from the petty jealousy to the hard drugs and the long, lonely nights on the road.

The personality clashes, the ego and the quest for stardom. Heartily recommenced by one of those music lovers that was in his own band and dreamed of the same success and followed these artists religiously from group to group to solo career, many times wishing the original band had never broken up.

A must read for fans of the era. Recommended for anyone else with an interest in getting an idea about how it was really liked.
