Random Notes: Gaga, Lil Wayne, and More"This band became all about Hayley.She had a manager at the time that controlled her every move along with her parents.Zac and I had a garage band in high school with the intentions of just making music for the love of it.We met Taylor and our friend Jason Clark at our school and found out that we shared the same musical tastes. It was some of the greatest times of our lives playing music in Taylor’s basement with them.Hayley’s manager would tell the band to be in the lobby of the hotel at a certain time, but he and Hayley wouldn’t show for hours.We found out that they had been meeting with record label executives all morning without us, which is totally weird given that this wasn’t simply a solo artist, but we were a band. After many meetings between Hayley, her manager and the labels they decided to sign her to Atlantic records.The Farros' post gives short shift to Josh's romantic relationship with Williams, which apparently accelerated the brothers' departure from the band, and discusses the growing musical and religious differences between Williams and the rest of the band: "Hayley presented lyrics to us that were really negative and we didn't agree with.Her statement reads, "I assure you that my blog and joshs blog are real. Clearly my blog is real by reading my stories and personal photos that are posted. Farro also say that he intended to release the news that they were no longer in the band on their own, but were beat to it by a statement from Williams on Saturday.
Our next move was to rerecord her solo demos with our own music rather than studio musicians to make it sound more genuine. I wrote out a list of names, including “Paramore”, a name my old band with Taylor and Jason Clark had thought about using. The label received the rerecorded demos and once again tried to fire the entire band, saying we were terrible.According to reports, Paramore's management declined to comment on the post. BLOG POST: Let me start by apologizing to you for the way everything went down on Saturday.I had a statement typed ready to post to you guys but Hayley released one without my permission.We didn’t understand why Hayley was the only one signing the contract since we were told this was a “band”, but we were too young to grasp all of this.So far, Zac and I haven’t signed with another label, although I guess our part of Paramore sure could.Months down the road things changed and this band became all about Hayley.
