Watch any of the studio scenes in the show and you can see the palpable tension between Daisy, Billy, and the rest of the band. With Daisy and Billy passive-aggressively penning songs for one another to sing and forcing them onto the album, the Amazon Prime show is hugely reminiscent of the way Fleetwood Mac worked together.
When her song "Silver Springs" was removed from the album Rumours, Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks said: "I started to scream bloody murder and probably said every horrible mean thing that you could possibly say to another human being, and walked back in the studio completely flipped out. I said, ‘well, I’m not gonna sing “I Don’t Want to Know”. I am one-fifth of this band.
And they said. ‘Well, if you don’t like it, you can either (a) take a hike or (b) you better go out there and sing “I Don’t Want to Know” or you’re only gonna have two songs on the record.’ And so, basically, with a gun to my head, I went out and sang ‘I Don’t Want to Know’. And they put ‘Silver Springs’ on the back of ‘Go Your Own Way’.”
Why was Stevie so attached to "Silver Springs"? Well, because she wrote it for bandmate and fellow lead singer, Lindsey. She explained at the reunion that inspired Jenkins-Reid that she wanted Lindsey to know: "I’m so angry with you. You will listen to me on the radio for the rest of your life, and it will bug you. I hope it bugs you."
This whole story could have been written about Daisy and Billy, so the inspiration is clearly seen throughout the show.
