the best band of soap set has against sex, drugs and rock n roll. but the other side Daisy jones & the sixes mean of ground breaking but he has the power so entertaining account of the greatest band that never existed.
20 years later (look back) he employing a faux documentary styile as the band members format. Each track he mostly use the tiltle of vintage song.
The Amazon series is based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel, which was inspired by Fleetwood Mac. However, the show mostly succeeds by forging its own path, referencing cultural artefacts of the era (Barry Manilow and “Rollerball” among them) while narrowly focusing on the band, with all the festering resentments and simmering attractions that come with the creative process.
Daisy Jones, a musical force with a mercurial temper who, thanks to the foresight of a record executive (Tom Wright), is thrown together with up-and-coming band the Six (there are actually five of them), an ambitious Pittsburgh group led by frontman Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin).
The novel is admittedly cheesy, but the oral-history format made it digestible. Because the musicians were talking about themselves, any artistic pretension belonged to the characters. It was understandable that the novel did not capture the essence of musical genius because Daisy and Billy did not always understand what made them unique. They simply had it in abundance, with no ability to explain to the rest of us what made their chemistry crackle.
Anyway, since this isn’t a column about the series‘ fidelity to the novel, I’ll end the discussion (for now) with some advice. Don’t buy the book if you haven’t already read it. Enjoy the series on its own terms, and return to the book when you’ve forgotten what “Impossible Woman” sounds like on the show and can hum it however you want. I should warn you that there are a few more novel spoilers in this recap, but if you’ve decided to watch a TV series based on a novel before reading the novel, I think you’ve made your own bed.
