Paramore and Red Hots


Hi everyone,

this month we'll tell you about Paramore and Red Hot Chili Peppers – another awesome bands ;D

Paramore is an american rockband coming from Franklin, Tennessee.

In 2002 13-year old Hayley Nicole Williams met brothers Josh and Zack Farro. She and Jeremy Davis were playing in a band called The Factory and later the siblings joined them. The band was officially founded in 2004 (notice that members were very young at that time!! Hayley, the youngest, was only 16!) Their first studio album 'All we know is Falling' was recorded year later. For the second 'RIOT!' we had to wait 2 years. Their third album 'brand new eyes' was recorded during and after Hayley's and Josh's relationship, which highly reflected on the sound and lyrics. In 2009 Taylor York officially joined Paramore, tough he was playing on tour since 2007. In 2010 the band informed on their site that Farro brothers left the band. It was a big controversial issue, that totally split the fanbase into two arguing camps. I personally think that it depends on the perspective. On the one side, Josh and Zack felt left out/ ignored because companies were focused mostly on Hayley, which is nothing out of place since at that time there weren't many bands with female lead singers. On the other hand Hayley didn't feel well in the band, because boys were making her feel guilty about the companies and weren't really accepting her. The way for her to move on was to write songs and lyrics, with which boys often disagreed on. The band made the hard choice and decided to move on without Josh and Zack. In april 2013 they are releasing their newest self-titled album. It consists 17 songs, and each of them is completely different. The band says that they grew up and also did their music. From the singles such as 'Now', I'm sure we can expect another great album.

Actual band members:

Hayley Williams – lead vocals, keyboard, guitar *she is famous for her dynamic moves, short height and colourful (mostly orange) hair*

Jeremy Davis – bass guitar

Taylor York – rhythm guitar

Former band members:

Zac Farro – drums (2004-2010)

Josh Farro – vocals, lead guitar (2004-2010)

And now... Red Hot Chili Peppers. This band comes from California but was founded in Los Angeles in 1983. They play mostly funk rock but also alternative rock or punk rock. Their first guitarist died in 1988 because of drugs and his place took John Frusciante who left the band in 1992 (one of the reason was addicted to drugs) but after his rehabe he returned and band recorded Californication – one of the most famous song of RHCP but in 2008 Frusciante left the band again. Band won Grammy Awards seven times and they sold over 68 million albums. Their first concert in Poland took place in 2007 in Chorzów. Their last concert in Poland was a year ago in Warsaw.
