Spotlight and Giveaway: Daisy Jones & the Six

We're excited to feature Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. It has been receiving a lot of amazing reviews and we look forward to reading it soon. Thanks to Ballantine, we have THREE copies to give away!

Everyone knows Daisy Jones & the Six: The Band’s album Aurora came to define the rock ‘n’ roll era of the late seventies, and an entire generation of girls wanted to grow up to be Daisy. But no one knows the reason behind the group’s split on the night of their final concert at Chicago Stadium on July 12, 1979 . . . until now.

Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock ’n’ roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.

Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.

Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.

Well, I can't sing or dance or so anything of talent. So, I wouldn't perform with any band. But, I sure do want to read this book.

Queen or Barry Manilow. Since I've played the piano since I was 7 years old it would be great to play with Barry Manilow.

Bon Jovi

Do Simon and Garfunkel count as a band? You said "perform," not sing or play an instrument. Back in the 1960s I could have helped with the stage or microphones or something.

I think I'd prefer just to watch. I have zero musical talent.

Just saw Taylor in Oakland, CA this past Thursday night. It was the 4th of her 34 stops on her book tour. And I'm a little shy of 1/2 way through Daisy Jones. It's very good.

I was one of those girls who had NKOTB posters all over my wall! I wouldn't do very well as a performer, though.

Milena Mutter said...

It would be Muse, they've been making music for 25 years and are still going strong!

Summer said...

Same answer as Dianna, New Kids On the Block, they stole my heart when I was twelve.

The Bee Gees. Loved them since I heard their first songs. Always are great sing-a-long songs. We flee to Las Vegas to see the them in One Night Only in 1997. Still love seeing Barry perform by himself, or with his son.
