‘Daisy Jones and the Six’ Plot

The novel itself, set in 70’s LA, depicts the life of its titular character who becomes a lead singer of the rock band, The Six, following a spell of sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, taking drugs with groupies, and having sex with rock stars.

The series adopts a documentary-style form whereby the band members give first-person accounts of their versions of The Six’s rise and fall.

Per the Amazon synopsis, the series, “[b]ased on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, […]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.”

Who is in the ‘Daisy Jones and the Six’ Cast?

Now this series couldn’t possibly do the novel justice without a killer cast and you won’t be disappointed.

The Complete cast of the show is listed below:

  • Riley Keough as Daisy Jones
  • Sam Claflin as Billy Dunne
  • Camila Morrone as Camila Dunne
  • Suki Waterhouse as Karen Sirko
  • Will Harrison as Graham Dunne
  • Josh Whitehouse as Eddie Roundtree
  • Sebastian Chacon as Warren Rojas
  • Nabiyah Be as Simone Jackson
  • Tom Wright as Teddy Price
  • Timothy Olyphant as Rod Reyes
  • Jacqueline Obradors as Lucia
  • Ayesha Harris as Bernie
  • Ross Partridge as Don Midleton

Starring as the titular Daisy Jones, is a rock royalty descendant herself, Riley Keough. Keough is the granddaughter of the rock ‘n’ roll king, Elvis Presley, and daughter of a musician, Danny Keough, and Lisa Marie Presley. So it’s no surprise that Keough was the perfect fit to play the free-spirited Daisy Jones


Despite revealing that she was initially nervous about the role, in an interview with Elle, Keough said, “I read the book, and I felt like, “This story is going to bring people happiness and joy. This is going to take people out of their lives for a minute.”

“It’s just a fun, fun, fun show. Of course, [Daisy]’s got addiction issues, and there’s sadness and heartbreak, but she’s also this powerful, incredible woman who doesn’t really give a shit about anything. When you play these characters, it’s liberating, especially when you’re playing a liberated woman.” 

“The scripts are so fun. The cast is awesome. It’s just going to be a real good time,” she continued. 

Following the pressure of being able to sing as Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Keough told Vanity Fair in December 2022,  “I didn’t even know how one gets to be able to sing loud. I went to a vocal coach and I was like, they need me to belt.”

Her agent suggested she try ripping out something like Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” from ‘A Star Is Born’ remake in her car to get in the mindset.

“I was like, are you out of your mind, it’s not an easy song to sing.”

“I sounded so bad that I started crying. I was like, I can’t do it, and when I can’t do something it lights a fire in me to be able to do it. I was like, I have to do it.


I’m gonna go to this vocal coach, and he’s gonna teach me how to fucking belt, whatever I need to do to get this. It really became about pushing myself to do things I’ve never done before.”

Playing the band’s male lead singer, Billy Dunne,  is ‘Love, Rosie’ star, Sam Claflin who spent the 2020 COVID-19 lockdowns learning how to play the guitar for the show.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight in September 2020, Claflin said of the show, “It’s got everything a good TV drama requires, really.”  

“The one thing it didn’t have is an actual person that can play guitar because that’s something I did not have in my utility belt going into this. But it’s something that I, fortunately, had a bit more time to do because of where we find ourselves.” 

In December 2022, he told Vanity Fair, “I have to say, I’d never picked up a guitar before I got this part. And, you know, having read the book, it wasn’t overly clear that I was due to be playing because we took some creative freedom and slightly shifted the parts.” 

“Meaning that I was going to be playing not lead guitar, thank God, but rhythm guitar. I had to learn how to hold the guitar, and how to strum the guitar. I had the biggest journey to go with the singing,” he continued.

Joining Keough and Claflin is Will Harrison who plays Graham Dunne, Billy’s younger brother, and the band’s guitarist, Suki Waterhouse who plays The Six’s keyboardist, Karen Sirko, and Josh Whitehouse who plays Eddie Roundtree who is thought to be based on the book’s Eddie Loving, another of the Six’s guitarists. 

Moreover, Sebastian Chacon plays The Six’s drummer, Warren Rhodes, Camila Morrone stars as Billy’s wife, Camila Dunne, and Nabiyah Be plays Daisy’s best friend and famous disco singer, Simone Jackson. You’ll also see Timothy Olyphant as Rod Reyes, The Six’s manager, and Tom Wright as producer, Teddy Price.

Reviews of the Show

“Daisy Jones and the Six” has received mixed reactions from the public and critics. It has been criticized for failing to replicate the book’s emotional impact and for being too slick and sanitized. However, other reviewers have liked the show and have praised Riley Keough’s singing.

According to Lucy Mangan from The Guardian whilst the show’s writers, Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber, “kept the style and glamour – everyone and everything in it looks ceaselessly gorgeous [it] failed to repeat Jenkins Reid’s great feat, which was to make you care about this group of talented, fortunate people who couldn’t keep themselves together enough to succeed for long, and who damaged an awful lot of people in the fallout.”

“The first two episodes are fun, as we track the band paying their dues in dingy clubs while Daisy hones her craft, befriends “disco pioneer” Simone Jackson (Nabiyah Be), and learns how treacherous the business can be. She has songs poached after playing them in private to unscrupulous boyfriends and is expected to aspire no higher than being a muse to men.”

The article’s author, Lucy Mangan continues: “Although the series gains more heft after Billy gets out of rehab, and more torque once Daisy arrives, Daisy Jones & the Six never properly comes to life. It’s all a little too slick and sanitary.”

Speaking of Keough and the show, Mangan claims that “not even Elvis Presley’s grandkid can save this 70s rock ‘n’ roll saga.” Yet, despite stating that she preferred the book to the series, she still sees the fun in the televised version.

Kelly Lawler from USA Today was equally disappointed by the show, labeling it as a “featherweight flop.”

She writes, “It is fleeting Fleetwood fan fiction, a far cry from capturing the true essence of the ’70s era. (And the real Fleetwood Mac had more drama in just one album cycle than the fictional Daisy Jones & The Six musters in the entire series.) “Daisy” is the most disappointing of TV endeavors: Glossy, star-studded, and completely hollow.”

However, Daniel D’Addario from Variety enjoyed the series, stating that it is “a flawed but compelling adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2019 novel of the same name” and believes that the show “[e]xcels when it lets Riley Keough sing.”
