Stereomixer, could you please tell us the deal with Paramore?

Some real heavy stuff said by Josh Farro this week regarding Paramores provenance, if you haven't read it, it's in this months altpress (altpress.com). Understandably you don't want to offend any parties but could you shed some light on whether this legit or not? If you hate Paramore, there are lots of other threads. Try a different one.

Pretty interesting read about some dudes and their instruments and a girl with red hair and big dreams. There's romance, betrayal and hit songs. Just wow!

I won't lie, I called this one when I first heard Misery Business. Something seemed very "perfect" about them and there would always be one amazing song per album. I'm kinda happy I'm right but, without that guy behind the drums it won't be Paramore.

So I take it you are pretty upset Jordan? Its a hard thing to go through, and if you need someone to talk to, feel free to call.

wow I will say one thing, Alternative Press has really gone down hill. It used to be somewhat decent in the early 90's when I used to read it.

Let us all come together in true spirit of Christmas and show our love and support to thousands of innocent people who have been lied to and who are now devastated by all this.

We will get through this together

I'm not sure. I thought I would enjoy this moment more but I think I drank some bad eggnog and I've felt weird since.

I guess I am going to have to come up for an idea for a new snare now. darn.
It is all actually pretty sad, no big mystery really, just kids growing up and growing apart.

There was nothing staged or fake about the RIOT at least for me. Actually it was a very exciting experience and everyone came to work hard and they did.
It was always Hayley...and the band. I guess the guys just wanted to move on and make their own statement. I hope everything works out for everyone, they are all very talented, especially Hayley an Josh. I guess we will see soon enough.

jchristopherhughes

p.s. nice job with the cavo boys, david. their record sounds great. glad to see them finally getting somewhere. good dudes. hard workers. much like paramore...they have been at it a long time. funny how that hard work stuff seems to go along with success. mostly, the hard work that no one actually sees except those doing it.

So easy to judge when you haven't walked a mile..

Great band with great songs. But i guess i started to doubt their decision
making ability when they decided NOT to go with David after riot. That
was crazy to me.

I think when you have literally been in a bubble for 7 years, most of them formative, something is going to shake loose. Imagine seeing that much of the world (5 world tours) , being able to buy a house and a car, and being interviewed 20 times a day for 5 of those years. Then you have to write music, try and have relationships with your family, and at the same time learn about yourself.
I truly do not believe this business is for everyone. "Bratty" maybe...But if you were never around for your parents to teach you in the first place, then life becomes much more difficult.
We all know that the best records, and the best music comes from people in trouble, or recognizing trouble around them. Most of my favorites died young, or should have. This business can kill you if you let it, we have all seen that. Please don't think this band is any different from any of the young musicians you might know today. Being rich and young is sometimes as bad as being broke, even worse, especially if you never asked for it.

Very true. It sucks cause they have a great sound, a lot of ho-hum material (on their new album anyways) which could stem from this very thing.

Without being insulting or condescending , I think that is taking it a bit too far .
I'd bet the homeless "kids" selling the Big Issue would gladly trade their life's pain at the drop of a hat .

All good reasons why the youth preying nature of some of the music business is wrong. Why on earth do people work with kids? It's abusive..... on two levels. For every Justin Bieber (sp?) theres a thousand kids that fail (and causes them no end of mental damage). Then there are the Biebers themselves. What happens to him when he inevitably falls?

Second - there are plenty of other youngsters who've managed to come through this without turning into "brats".....
