Paramore singer and guitarist Taylor York confirmed their relationship
Last Thursday, the singer Hayley Williamssinger of Paramore, confirmed that he is dating the band’s guitarist, Taylor York. The announcement came on the same day as the group’s single, “This Is Why”.
However, the singer was definitely not the first artist to date her bandmate. That’s why we separate other artists who have done the same as Hayley Williams. Watch:
Agnetha Fältskog and Björn Ulvaeus (ABBA)
The two members of ABBA had already been married for a year when the band started its activities. The two were married for eight years, from 1971 to 1979. The group broke up three years later, in 1982.
In her biography, Agnetha said that the divorce was not easy, especially because of her children. “We always talked in the media that it was a ‘happy’ divorce, which was obviously a facade. We all know there are no happy divorces, especially when there are children involved,” she explained. “Also, ours was under the control of the media. The reason behind our division is one of those things that I absolutely don’t want to get into.”
Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad
The other half of ABBA was also a couple. The two met in 1969 and soon moved in together. Years later, Agnetha and Bjorn joined ABBA, but they also ended up breaking up. Benny and Anni-Frid married from 1978 to 1981.
The end of ABBA, in fact, took place precisely because of the quarrels that began after the divorce of the members of the group.
Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal
Gwen Stefani’s first long-term relationship took place within the No Doubt group, with Tony Kanal. In fact, the song “Don’t Speak”, one of the best known of the band, was composed by the vocalist about the break with the bassist.
However, to this day Gwen sees the breakup with her bandmate as a creative awakening. “After Tony broke up with me, I realized I had something to say. When I started writing songs, he was like, ‘I’m a real human being, I can do something,'” she revealed. “Before, all that mattered to him was to be in love with my boyfriend. I had no creative power, nothing. I don’t know this person anymore,” she concluded.
In fact, the two ended their relationship relatively well, so much so that they eventually went on to make music together.
Phoebe Bridgers and Marshall Vore
Little is known about Phoebe Bridgers’ relationship with her drummer Marshall Vore. However, we know that the end of the relationship brought several songs (and a lot of success) for the singer, such as the song “ICU”.
To this day Marshall is part of the singer’s live band and the two remain close friends. “When we broke up, it was very difficult and heartbreaking”, Phoebe commented in an interview with Apple Music. “It’s so weird that you can date someone and then you’re a stranger to the person for a while. Now we’re super together. We’re like best friends and always will be. There are only a few people you date where it’s nearly as good. romantic that the element of friendship is a bit secondary, and ours has never been like this“, finished.
Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham
Finally, on the list of singers who, like Hayley Williams, have dated their bandmates, we have another super famous couple: Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham of the group Fleetwood Mac. The two met at the end of high school, years before. for the band to form. In fact, the two would only start many years later, with a move to Los Angeles to pursue their music career.
The end of the relationship came during the composition of the album “Rumors”. The project was a success, but the atmosphere on stage was not the best, especially when the two needed to sing the song “Silver Springs”, which presumably was about the end of their relationship.
