Stevie Nicks is gushing about the new show starring Elvis Presley‘s granddaughter. Daisy Jones & the Six, starring Riley Keough and Sam Claflin follows a ’70s band of the same name as they reveal some truths decades later. Nicks admitted that she watched the entire series on Prime Video twice and said that it brought back a lot of old memories.

The show is based on a book and is loosely inspired by Fleetwood Mac and Nicks’ experiences. She said that watching the series made her “feel like a ghost watching my own story.” She added that she wishes that her late bandmate Christine McVie could have seen it. She passed away in 2022.

Nicks revealed that while at the beginning of the show, it wasn’t her story, it quickly became very reminiscent. She said that it was very emotional for her to watch but she loved it and hopes to see a second season. A second season is likely as Keough has already received an Emmy nomination for her performance along with co-star Camila Morrone.

Reese Witherspoon‘s company Hello Sunshine produced the series and she was over the moon that Nicks enjoyed watching it. She commented on Nicks’ review, “Oh my stars, Stevie !! ✨This means the world to the whole [Daisy Jones & the Six] team! Thank YOU for cutting the path!”

The novelist Taylor Jenkins Reid said she was inspired to write the book based on Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham‘s interactions on stage after their infamous breakup. She said, “… when I decided I wanted to write a book about rock ‘n’ roll, I kept coming back to that moment when Lindsey watched Stevie sing ‘Landslide.’ How it looked so much like two people in love. And yet, we’ll never truly know what lived between them. I wanted to write a story about that, about how the lines between real life and performance can get blurred, about how singing about old wounds might keep them fresh.” Have you watched Daisy Jones & the Six yet or read the book?
