He's either on fire or he's not watching enough television.

He's a very major talent and I love him to bits.  I'm just not entirely sure that releasing all of this stuff actually achieves very much beyond satisfying all of those that think he's a very minor and very erratic figure.  Let's face it, whilst clever and funny, his rap stuff is unlikely to be listened to in 20 years time whereas some of the other stuff he's done almost certainly will.  And that's not because it's rap (of which I've probably got a slightly higher tolerance than many on this forum) but its because it's like Chuck D recording a Country Rock album.  Why?  Actually on second thoughts, that might be worth listening to  Wink

It was about 3 UK tours ago (Jan 23 2004).  He was a little tired and emotional.  And so was his wrist after he fell off.

He's more than just a major talent IMO "Carolina" is the best ballad ever written.

Oooof! I don't know the song but that's saying something when you think of the ballads that might come in contention for that epithet.

Must be very good!

What an alleged knob. Let's try not to convict without trial shall we? There is no easier route to publicity in this day and age than to make these sorts of allegations, some of which (by no means all) seem to add up to little more than "he said he'd record my song but then he didn't".

Ever since S*****e, the assumption of guilty until proved innocent has become a major issue in our media and judicial system and the US is going the same way. Ryan Adams may well be guilty or he may not. Let's let due process take place before we start slinging insults around.

I'm not sure (from what little I've read) there is any question of illegality, is there?  There is a very large question of personal ethics to be answered though.  Much as I am loathed to agree that the rush to judgement should be avoided, I suspect there may be more than a little truth in this: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/feb/14/the-ryan-adams-allegations-are-the-tip-of-an-indie-music-iceberg

I’ve considered Ryan Adams a bit of a dick since the whole Songwriter’s Circle debacle.
https://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/music/ryan-adams-and-neil-finn-fall-out-during-tv-taping-20111026-1mjld.html
The whole “She’s just saying that to get publicity” trope is a well-travelled path. Maybe Phoebe Bridger’s just trying to kick up some interest in her new album with Conor Oberst? And then you start looking up his back story...
