I had no idea Pete Evick worked with Paramore. Turns out, the Bret Michaels Band guitarist just received his first gold record award for his work with Paramore. No, Pete didn't play guitar with the modern rockers - he helped with his studio prowess.
Turns out Pete helped with the editing on Paramore's album The Final Riot!
From the official press release:
"The guitarist for the Bret Michaels Band and leader of his namesake band was brought in by producer Jeff Juliano to digitally edit the modern rock heroes live album. "The album had been mixed down but they were on a tight deadline to deliver it to their label so Jeff suggested they send it to me to see what I could do with it, knowing that I understand editing software for use in live recordings better than most," says Evick. "I also work at a pretty rapid pace and could meet their deadline so I worked on it a few days, sent it back and all was good. It was an honour to work a young band
like Paramore who aren't only talented, they really have their act together."
Paramore certainly are famous these days. Perhaps Pete can lead his studio abilities to Poison, giving the Pennsylvania natives a much needed nudge toward the studio?
Here's a little Paramore for your Saturday - give them a chance, you might like them!
