Ryan Adams mouthing off again

http://www.gloriousnoise.com/arch/000858.php

Interesting article, I tend to agree with alot of it. Im a fan of Ryan and Whiskeytown, and I agree with the writers assesment about Heartbreaker being ace and Gold dissapointing.

But the more I read from Ryan the more I think hes a whiny little bitch. I mean, make good music, be a rebel, but get over yourself man!

Oh well, .....waits for BC to chime in...

I won't argue with you. He's human. He's not perfect. Nobody is.

I'm familiar with all of this stuff because I regularly visit his message board and see all of his posts. The press has picked up on the fact that he posts there, and they float around the board, snapping up all of his posts that paint him in a more negative light. Not all of his posts are like that though, and it's a shame that the press doesn't reprint anything nice or positive that he says.

I think some of the problem may be that Ryan tends to not take things so seriously, so he just posts whatever he's feeling at the moment. Mayhaps he forgets just how many people are hanging on to his every word.

I could never be a celebrity. Can you imagine if people swiped shit I posted online and put it in articles? I'd ruin myself in a week, I tell ya...they'd all think I was cracked.

Yeah, his posts about the White Stripes really bug me. Sam with his response to the author's criticism. Extremely childish, just flaunting his money, basically.

It's a shame, because I like his music, but the more I read of his interviews and his jabs at other artists, the less I like him as a person.

He really is a good person. He's done lots of sweet things that the press will not give attention to...because that's not what gets attention.

Good opportunity for me to bring up this story again...

A friend of mine has cancer. She was posting about her chemotherapy at Ryan's message board, and Ryan asked for her address. He sent her a dozen roses and some records. We know that it was actually him because she thanked him publicly at his board, and he replied. Not to mention the times he comes online and just shoots the shit with us in a friendly way.

He is not all bad. Certain things rub him the wrong way, and he goes off on tangents at times. I think that he uses his board as a way to vent frustrations, which is not always the best idea.

By reading his message boards (which I finally did a little bit, just now), it's rather hard to tell if he likes or hates the White Stripes sometimes.

hehe, every similar thread listed was started by bonochick.

all i can say is that i too don't think it's a good idea for him to do his rants and ramblings on a public forum. i can certainly understand him wanting to get his thoughts out, because i do it all the time. i just think he should do it somewhere a bit more private. mayhaps he should start writing a journal.

Yeah...he should have a journal. He seems to come online more when his girlfriend goes home to England. I think he gets lonely, and his mind goes into overdrive.
