Paramore's strong 2nd act
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
Paramore went through a major shakeup a few years ago, when founding guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro abruptly left the band in a huff. After the dust settled, singer Hayley Williams, 24, decided to carry on with guitarist Taylor York and bassist Jeremy Davis. The Tennessee group headed for Los Angeles to make its self-titled fourth album with producer Justin Meldal-Johnson, who has worked with Beck and M83, among others. Not only do you get to keep doing it, but you also scored your first No. 1 album. [...] I realize that comes from having songs that connect with people. Was there a good reason that you listened to only '80s music while working on the album? Aidin Vaziri is The San Francisco Chronicle's pop music critic.
