From preciously talented teenage upstarts to globe-trotting megastars, Paramore have established themselves as one of the foremost bands in mainstream rock music. Combining muscular guitars and driving rhythms with an irresistible pop sensibility, their blistering live show and endlessly dynamic front woman Hayley Williams has taken them from club shows in their hometown to sell-out arena dates across the world - and earned them a fiercely dedicated fan-base along the way. But with their success has come the pressure of growing up under the media's scrutiny. Small-town kids from Tennessee thrust into international stardom, they have had to negotiate their adolescence alongside the demands of a gruelling tour schedule and numerous line-up changes. This test of character brought them to the brink of collapse. And yet, from this adversity Paramore returned with their most confident, accomplished and deeply personal album to date - Brand New Eyes. This unauthorised book is the first to tell their story and details the early years forming the band, their explosive debut record, the strident, platinum-selling follow-up Riot! and their status in late 2009 as the 'next major rock act' in the world.

    I loved this book because it was about Paramore, but I didn't like it because of how the writer seemed to have criticisms about pretty much everything. And when you're writing a book for Paramore fans, criticising a lot of their work and such really does not work. However, I did enjoy ...
