What is the Plot of Daisy Jones and The Six?
Daisy Jones and The Six will take us back to the 70s with all the rock and roll as the series follows a 70s rock band and their rise to fame and eventual fall, and a whole lot of drama in between. So before we dive into some of the plot details of Daisy Jones and The Six, let’s take a look at the official synopsis of the upcoming series and what we can expect from it:
“Based on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six is a limited musical-drama series detailing the rise and precipitous fall of a renowned rock band. In 1977, Daisy Jones & The Six were on top of the world. Fronted by two charismatic lead singers—Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne —the band had risen from obscurity to fame. And then, after a sold-out show at Chicago’s Soldier Field, they called it quits. Now, decades later, the band members finally agree to reveal the truth. This is the story of how an iconic band imploded at the height of its powers.”
Thanks to Amazon Studios, we have a good idea of what we can expect from the upcoming series Daisy Jones and The Six. The series is loosely inspired by the band Fleetwood Mac, but we’ll know more about just how loosely inspired it is when the series releases.

While we are certain that the series will follow the book closely, it will be interesting to see if they follow the same format and how they go about it. Nevertheless, we are excited to reminisce with a 70s band through their highs and lows, along with some drama, and romance, and of course, we have some brilliant music to look forward to!
