Gossip Girl – No Doubt – Paramore – mixed media to the max!

4 Mar

No Doubt to reform. Gwen Stefani to rejoin. No Doubt to play on Gossip Girl. Paramore to tour with No Doubt :: the headlines have been ongoing – and confusing …

Hayley Williams of ParamoreParamore’s front-woman Hayley Williams (photo 1) has said No Doubt “have done amazing things” and are one example of the path Paramore would like to take their career :: however, she also says that Paramore is not just a “girl-fronted band” and it makes “music for people to enjoy music, not so people can talk about my sexuality”

also of interest is one reviewer at NME suggested Paramore’s sound is similar to that of No Doubt but “stripped of all the ska bollocks” and then went on to suggest Hayley’s voice is equivalent to “Kelly Clarkson’s wildest dreams” :: whatever the case, Hayley has said her personal influences include Robert Smith of The Cure and Etta James

Gwen Stefani of No Doubtalthough I never really got into No Doubt – too soft, too ska, too derivative, too shrill – they were still a good example of a female-fronted band doing good :: and Gwen Stefani (photo 2) certainly has a wide variety of fashion styles at her disposal

the No Doubt/Paramore tour covers 45 cities and begins on May 3rd :: as Paramore have been touring a lot in the 5 years No Doubt have been in limbo, we expect a powerful showing from our metal favourites

the curiosity that is Gossip Girl is perhaps a strange place for No Doubt to do a warm up, but they will perform Stand and Deliver, originally by Adam and the Ants
