The episodes of the series that have been released so far have triggered a discussion on the Internet. At the heart of this is the question: Was the fictional story inspired by real facts? Two names keep coming up: Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac. In fact, author Taylor Jenkins revealed to Reid that while writing "Daisy Jones
It wasn't until 1975 that Nicks and Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac - and led the band to worldwide success. Yes - similar to "Daisy Jones
"When we split up, two years after joining Fleetwood Mac, it was like a living nightmare," Stevie Nicks told Australia's Woman's Own magazine in the early 1990s. "He and I were about as compatible as a boa constrictor and a rat," she explained of the dynamic. The other band members also struggled with relationship problems and drugs. At the same time, the band was producing their most successful, critically acclaimed album, Rumors.
"We were all in an emotional ditch. Everyone knew everything about everyone. But I was the pig in the middle because I had less trauma than the others," Mick Fleetwood once said "People".

And for the fraction For a second - just a split second, really - Lindsey put his fist under his chin and looked at Stevie like she was a miracle. And I was like, 'Oh, they're in love,'" the author recalls today. "Imagine my surprise when my mother explained to me later that although they had been together once, they weren't together anymore. That made absolutely no sense to me. But they love each other!"
It was this performance by Fleetwood Mac that inspired her to write "Daisy Jones
The result is a bestseller whose film version is just as popular with the masses.
