View Full Version : Ryan Adams

Anyone here got an opinion of Ryan Adams? He's got an album called "Gold" which is being released on SACD. I've heard a couple of his singles and thought they were rather decent, but wondered if anybody else had a view? Any album info?

He doesn't do a great deal for me. I'm convinced that one of the tracks on LWP3 CD 2 is one of his.

I've got an album called Heartbreaker which is quite nice, if nothing too remarkable. Gold is supposed to better, so I guess it must be pretty good.

I might give it a dip - especially as it's on SACD and it would be good to get some "contemporary" stuff on SACD.

I like him in Whisketown (his old band)n but not so keen on him solo. Still not bad though

I quite liked Gold. He needs to focus more, but he's certainly got enough innate ability.

He's actualy a really talented artist. I would go for it. Gold is definitly his best album of the three that he's released (Demolition in September 2002, Gold September 2001 and Heart Breaker October 2000) Demolition is actualy a composite CD of a variety of recording sessions and demos. He literaly has hundreds of songs under his belt and has quite a forte of style within his particular genre.

There were actualy plans in the making for Ryan Adams, Evan Dando, Melissa Auf Der Maur, James Iha to form a group together called the Virgins, however that never really paned out. Might have been cool.

Seen him live three times. First time was in October last year right after Gold came out. He played a +3 hour set. He would have kept going too except the 9:30 club turned the lights up on him and kind of kicked him out... though by that time he was so trashed that he was yelling at his band members and half screaming profanities.

The other two times were back in october of this year. It was just him doing accustocial versions of his songs (a few backed up with an upright bassest and a violenist). Their were chairs for the audience (somthing i've never seen at the 9:30 club) and it was a very moving set... mind you the first night I got totaly blitzed on Wiskey sours at the bar (bartender made best ones I've ever had.)

Tegan and Sara opened for him. They were really excelent.

PM me if you get into him and want some decent bootlegs.

God I hate them.

They play on campus every other month, it seems. They used to go to school here so they feel the need to constantly torture us.

I am always suspicious of anyone who rhymes with Bryan Adams.

He has thrown people out of gigs for requesting Summer of '69.

The funny thing is his full name is David Ryan Adams, so he kinda brings it on himself.
