“Daisy Jones & The Six” hits Amazon Prime Video on March 3. The show, which is based on the book of the same name by Taylor Jenkins Reid, centers around a fictional rock band’s rise to stardom during the 1970s. In the series, Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) meets Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) and joins his band, The Six. Together, they record the hit album “Aurora” before the group splits up. Apart from Billy, The Six is made up of lead guitarist Graham Dunne (Will Harrison), keyboardist Karen Sirko (Suki Waterhouse), bassist Eddie Roundtree (Josh Whitehouse), and drummer Warren Rojas (Sebastian Chacon).
While Daisy Jones & The Six may not be a real band, the show’s cast actually learned to sing and play instruments to make their performances appear as real as possible. The series’ showrunner Scott Neustadter told EW because of the pandemic, the cast was able to receive lengthy music training prior to filming their performances as a band. “I don’t know what we would’ve done had we gone when we were supposed to. It would’ve looked a lot different. We would’ve had a little more movie magic involved,” Neustadter said. “But in this particular case, they were all really doing all this stuff.”
