What is the inspiration behind it Daisy Jones and Six?

Although Reed’s novel is a work of fiction in its own right, it was explained earlier the inspiration for this story came from his love for a real rock band Fleetwood Mac. Reed recalled watching a performance between the bandleaders Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham and think, “Oh, they’re in love.” Fleetwood Mac’s interpersonal drama is often reflected in their music, and Reid used the mix of real emotion and theatrics needed to put on a good performance to write a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss.

Daisy Jones and Six Premieres March 3 on Prime Video. Stars of the series Sam Claflin, Riley Keough, Camila Morrone, Sookie Waterhouse, Will Harrison, Josh Whitehouse, Sebastien Chacon, Nabi beand Tom Wright.
