Gosh, we've all been talking about the Paramore schism
(so sad!), and those things that Josh and Zac Farro said
on their way out the door. We've also been talking about whether temporary fill-in drummer Josh Freese
actually played drums on some of those Paramore songs in the first place, but that's neither here nor there. What is here and there is what the remaining three members of the band — Jeremy Davis, Hayley Williams and Taylor York (in alphabetical order by last name, so as to not overly emphasize any one member) — have to dish on the situation.
Today at 3 p.m. Nashville time, an interview with the band will stream on MTV.com. They've been posting snippets throughout the week, and here's what we know so far:
1. Paramore is a band
2. Paramore is "not a manufactured band"
3. Taylor York is not Josh Farro
4. 90 percent of the last album was about Josh Farro
This would be as good a time as any to announce that kindred spirits Apollo Up! will be taking their talents to Franklin, would it not? Everybody do a shot when a band member refers to "downsizing."
