Watch Ryan Adams Cover Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These”

I never thought I’d say this, but I’d be interested in hearing a Ryan Adams album entirely comprising live acoustic Foo Fighters covers.

Ryan Adams Dissed Deadmau5 At Gov Ball So Don’t Hold Your Breath For Their Unreleased Collaboration

Ryan Adams doesn’t appreciate interruptions, be they Bryan Adams-obsessed hecklers or flash-happy amateur photographers. And crowded music festivals can be stressful places for everyone — if you’ll recall, it was festival noise spillover that got the whole stupid Sun Kil Moon/the War On Drugs thing going in the first place.

Watch David Letterman Bring Ryan Adams Back For An Encore

Watch Ryan Adams Cover Bryan Adams’ “Summer Of ’69” In Callback To Infamous Heckling Incident

Back in 2003, Ryan Adams was playing Nashville’s fabled Ryman Auditorium, and one fan wouldn’t stop requesting that he cover Bryan Adams’ cheese-rock hit “Summer Of ’69.” Ryan famously kicked the fan out, cussing him out and throwing him a refund in the process.

Mike Viola – “Stairway To Paradise” (Stereogum Premiere)

Mike Viola’s voice has a pleasingly worn quality to it, and his music is easy to sink into — it welcomes you in like the cracked leather of your favorite armchair or a dog-eared copy of your favorite book.
