`Brace for 2019's first pop-culture sensation... we're not exaggerating... new obsession, incoming' TELEGRAPH
_________________
For a while, Daisy Jones & The Six were everywhere. Their albums were on every turntable, they sold out arenas from coast to coast, their sound defined an era. And then, on 12 July 1979, they split.

Nobody ever knew why. Until now.

They were lovers and friends and brothers and rivals. They couldn't believe their luck, until it ran out. This is their story of the early days and the wild nights, but everyone remembers the truth differently.

The only thing they all know for sure is that from the moment Daisy Jones walked barefoot onstage at the Whisky, their lives were irrevocably changed.

Making music is never just about the music. And sometimes it can be hard to tell where the sound stops and the feelings begin.

Daisy and the band captured my heart, and they're sure to capture yours too" * Reese Witherspoon * "A tremendously engaging, and completely believable tale of rock and roll excess, one made all the more enjoyable by being written as an oral biography.
