Unique and very interesting.

I really enjoyed reading this book and loved the fact that it was done as a series of interviews, which enabled the reader to get the POV’s of ALL the character involved in the storyline. Set in the late ‘60’s the story follows of the creation of a small town blues rock band, called the Dunne Brothers, which was started by brothers Billy and Graham Dunne in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
They were a young band and started out playing in bars, house parties and weddings. Later on they started playing in neighbouring towns until they were picked up by their manager, Rob Reyes and he got them signed up to a recording company called Runner Records. Ultimately, through the record label, a collaboration occurred between The Six and singer-songwriter Daisy Jones and a new band is formed in the early ‘70’s known as Daisy Jones and the Six.
The storyline has everything that you would associate with a 70’s rock band - lots of sex, heaps of drugs and of course the rock and roll. The book is really well written with great character and world building. You actually felt as if you were reliving the ‘70’s through the eyes of these characters. The storyline is original, unique, very interesting and quite refreshing. It had me on an emotional roller coaster with everything that happened within the band and the personal turmoil each band member felt and went through during their time together. I absolutely enjoyed every minute of it!
