As a huge fan of the book, I can confirm that hearing the music of Daisy Jones and the Six finally brought to life gave me chills. In the novel, the titular Daisy Jones pens “Regret Me” as a bitter middle finger to her bandmate Billy, who she frequently butts heads with over the course of their entwined careers. And as all great singer-songwriters do, she pours all her thoughts into biting lyrics directed straight at Billy: “And, baby, when you think of me/I hope it ruins rock ‘n’ roll.” Ouch! This is just a glimpse of the kind of drama you can expect from the rise and fall of this epic fictional band. In the meantime, the full version of “Regret Me” is already available on YouTube and Spotify.
In addition to Riley Keough as Daisy and Sam Claflin as Billy, the series stars Camila Morrone as Camila Dunne, Will Harrison as Graham Dunne, Suki Waterhouse as Karen Sirko, Josh Whitehouse as Eddie Roundtree, Sebastian Chacon as Warren Rojas, Nabiyah Be as Simone Jackson, and Tom Wright as Teddy Price — plus, a special guest appearance by Timothy Olyphant as Rod Reyes.
“Daisy Jones & The Six” is set to debut on Prime Video on March 3, 2023, with new episodes released every Friday through March 24. The music will rollout alongside the series.
In 1977, Daisy Jones & The Six were on top of the world. Fronted by two charismatic lead singers — Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) and Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) — 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.
