Over the past few weeks, Hayley Williams has been sharing various fan covers of classic Paramore songs on social media. Last month, Williams shared one fan’s cathartic acoustic cover of “Hard Times.” Now, the Paramore vocalist is praising Dorothea Taylor‘s most recent drum cover.
Taylor has been gaining attention on the internet for her recent drum covers of artists including Slipknot and Disturbed. Earlier this year, she shared her cover of Disturbed’s “Down With The Sickness.”
According to Drum Magazine, Taylor is a member of a “classic rock/new country band currently called Badlander” and has been drumming for 56 years. Since joining TikTok, she has shared 18 drum covers of various artists.
Now, Taylor is capturing the attention of Paramore fans and Williams. She recently released her drum cover of “Ain’t It Fun” on TikTok. The 50-second video quickly spread like wildfire on social media and was eventually seen by Williams.
The Paramore vocalist calls Taylor a true “badass” after watching the new cover that has already been viewed over 1.4 million times on TikTok.
“Love her, she’s a badass,” Williams tweets.
