November 11th, 2011 · Comments Off on Ryan Adams Performs “Ashes & Fire” on Jools Holland

With his latest album Ashes & Fire, Ryan Adams seems to have reconnected with much of his audience, although I’m confused as to why he had to reconnect in the first place.

Ryan Adams resurfaces as Werewolph

April 9th, 2009 · 1 Comment

After ditching his Cardinals at the end of last month’s tour, Ryan Adams has resurfaced as Werewolph, the nom de plume he’s used before as a metal experiment on his website. If this is the effect marrying Mandy Moore has on him, I am a huge supporter of this union. The three songs (“Dead People […]
