Ryan Adams - Rock ’n’ Roll
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Ryan Adams - Rock ’n’ RollHe may be prolific, but Ryan Adams can also be pretty pathetic—witness the hissy-fit he threw when a concert-goer joked about his near-namesake Bryan Adams. Then there’s the public feud he’s waging with Jack White, calling the White Stripes’ frontman a “little girl.” It’s too bad because Adams can turn out dozens of above-average tunes with ease. Check out the tender piano ballad title track or the sneering garage rocker “Note to Self: Don’t Die.” Guests include Melissa Auf der Mau and Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong.
