I saw Ryan open for Oasis on Friday night. He music was good, but he acted like a bit of a douche towards the audience, hurling thinly veiled insults. This came as a surprise because it's not something you'd expect from someone playing his style of music.

It's actually not a surprise at all. He's notorious for that sort of stuff....you never know which Ryan will show up at one of his gigs. For me, his music is not good enough to play guessing games with his multiple-personality disorder pattern.

Yeah, so I've learned. VP mentioned the same thing in the Bar.

At the end of a song he made a comment. It sank in a few seconds later and I thought: "Did he just say that?!"

Then when he started the next song, he stopped and added, "Actually, I really fucking hope I meet none of you."

Then later when people cheered after a song he said, "Yes, I know, Oasis is great. I'll be done soon so you can get to see Oasis. Don't you fucking worry!"

After he was done his set he said, "Thank you." And then spoke a mile a minute. Something like, "OK, Oasis is coming on now I hope you're happy. Thanks for listening to my music, and Oasis is coming on now." Again, he said it all very fast, so I'm not sure about that last quote.

And in the grand scheme of things I guess what he said wasn't all that bad. But it just came as a surprise because it's not something that you'd expect from someone that plays his style of music. It came off as very passive aggressive to me. One minute he's singing a beautiful song, the next he's saying things like that. Unprovoked, I might add. If Liam Gallagher had said these things I wouldn't have batted an eyelash.

Yeah I think you misunderstood him, which to be honest is easy to do...

When he was saying "you're wasting your time" he was being self depricating. He's an interesting individual that is going through some self admitted issues, I don't think anything he said was an insult.

He's actually really enjoying this tour and praises Oasis... You should check out his website he talks very highly of them and the tour...

That's how I interpret it...and the talk about Oasis is him acknowledging the fact that there are probably a lot of Oasis fans at the show who don't care about seeing him as the opening act and just want to hurry up and get to Oasis. I have a bootleg from when he opened for a Rolling Stones show, and he came out and said, "Don't worry, it's not The Stones, it's just me."

Guess I could add this here:

Teletext Planet Sound News

Meh. I won't get excited until there is some more concrete news! They don't even have the title of JCN right.

Not to mention Easy Tiger is really a Cardinal's album. I think they just made that up, based on the merchandise they've been hawking with Cardinology written on it. There's definitely a new project coming together but they don't seem to have anything concrete or new to say about it.

No, Easy Tiger was released as a Ryan Adams album, 'Follow the Lights' was released as Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, as were JCN and CR. He said in many interviews that after Easy Tiger they would start releasing albums as The Cardinals.

well, that's pretty official... do we have any samples of the new material? Is it in the same vein as Easy Tiger?
