But I'm wondering how much the drums really matter in a genre focused mostly on vocal and guitar-
driven power choruses.

It's already her solo project, so it's not like she needs to rub it in to her band mates any more.

Mike Portnoy should've auditioned. The type of music this band makes is similar to his new taste of music.


And he loves money.

Someone here is new to the internet, and apparently is also a non-native English speaker. Or is just 14. Same thing, really.

And I'm pretty sure I read that Haley was supposed to be "the band" as far as the original label was concerned, with the other members being essentially valued as only session/live musicians.

@ D41V30N:

If Portnoy actually did audition, I wouldn't at all be surprised after he's pratically ruined his career. xD

First , Yeh , English is not my native lang , so?
Second ,I'm 27 years old
New to the internet ? Really? I can't even think about reasonable connection between the "Fact" I'm new to the internet to my first comment... Maybe you should explain ...

Because you attacked people for using the term "gay." If you weren't new to this website (or the internet community in general), you'd know that people use words differently here. "Gay" isn't mean as much as an insult to homosexuals, but more simply means that something is uninteresting or unoriginal.

Mike Portnoy said that he doesn't want to be limited to mating with humans only. He wants to mate with monkeys and pandas and crocodiles and chihuahuas and skunks and penguins and lantern fishes and condors and so on.

Actually I do like riot a good bit, and I would do the shit out of hayley williams LBR. I just meant that who the drummer is for paramore doesn't really matter much. It's like a metalcore band in which you barely hear the bass replacing their bassist - it makes for a no-one-curr announcement.

I shall respect this band only if they pull off a video as epic as Rammstein's Pussy, where the gang members rapes Hayley in a dark alley and she sings while being raped.

There are tons of band with chicks singing that are better than Paramore. Band is just like no doubt, with a shitty aesthetic and more focused in making songs for pussies of these times.
