Ryan Adams at BBC 6 Studios, London

Ryan Adams appeared on BBC 6 Music with Lauren Laverne for an interview and performance. During an interview portion of the segment he revealed he’s been at work on a book about his former band Whiskeytown. Adams played two songs, “To Be Without You” and “Do You Still Love Me?”, between chats with Laverne. The host asked Adams about projects he’s working on beyond writing songs and he revealed he was currently writing two books. One book is a science-fiction novel Adams has been writing for a while that he shared few details about. A second book will chronicle his early-career alt-country group Whiskeytown. “I think it’s going to be really funny,” Adams said, “but it’s going to be about my sort of first years, with my first sort of known band, Whiskeytown, and all of the crazy funny things that happened. And [it’s] going to hopefully have a thing where some of the other members and I talk about different specific things – I mean it was mostly just really funny and fun.”

Ryan Adams Recounts “Summer of ’69” Heckler Incident in New York Times Op-Ed

After a handful of songs, I heard muttering. A voice commenting, followed by loud “shhhh” sounds. It would fade out, and just as soon as all seemed normal, it began again. Mumbles. Indecipherable. Maybe something about Skynyrd. I couldn’t tell. I started to feel uneasy. I dropped my pick in the middle of a song. I got distracted, and the distraction became alarming. But song by song, I made my way back. I was struggling, but I was making headway, trying not to take what was happening out there in the sea of faces personally. I wondered if people in the upper balcony could understand what was happening. It made me feel terribly insecure. I was not used to this.

Music Junkie TV interview (Print)

?Questionnaire for Ryan Adams. Now, faster than any new fan could possibly digest all that his discography has to offer, Adams is ready to uncage Prisoner. It’s a record that many have been quick to categorize as an emotional response to Adams’ highly publicized divorce from Mandy Moore, but for him, it was an exercise in learning more about himself. Sure, the songs are emotionally intense and flirt with “the rough edges life,” but they also spawned deep introspective questions like “What does it mean to be how old I am?” and “What does it mean to still have this feeling hope on the outside damage?” Ultimately, the new record hears him expressing a newfound awareness and understanding his current place in the world. In his own words, “I’ve never felt more myself and at home.”

First episode of the Ryan Adams radio talkshow, The Midnighr Wave, premieres on Apple Music

Ever wonder what goes on at Ryan Adams’ Pax-Am Studios every night? Well now you can find out. Adams is the newest among the plethora of stars hosting Beats 1 radio shows on Apple Music. Titled The Midnight Wave, the show premieres 2/19. It is, as Adams explains, “like Wayne’s World, but for real.” The trailer for The Midnight Wave covers some extremely necessary bases: A caller asserts that “UFOs do in fact exist but they won’t visit us because Earth fucking sucks. You know what I mean?” And he totally has a point, which Adams seems to agree with. There’s even a segment called “Twitter: Trump or Morrissey?” and one dubbed “Sad Advice.” The Midnight Wave sounds like a fun addition to Beats 1.

Ryan Adams pays tribute to Chuck Berry: 'We are all swimming in his wake'

From “Maybellene” to “Carol” to “Nadine,” my own Chuck Berry painted the geography of a fictional America riddled with sexual tension, fast cars, frustration, telephone operators, taxis, and a Cadillac. I first heard heard these songs on the radio and on the heavy green record player at my grandparents’ house. They were somehow an accepted form of musical danger that left me obsessed with a time and a world I would never quite touch fully — his mark were the bricks thrown through the closed storefront windows of small town USA’s dying Main Street. We are all swimming in his wake, any of us with guitars and smirks and winks for girls — and I especially owe him with my black Cadillac and my wooden walnut ES-355, and my tendency to side with the right hook less the nice guy bulls???. He made it feel right to be wrong. I’ll be forever grateful to this master of badassery. What I would give to see Beethoven’s face now. Roll over, indeed. RIP Chuck Berry.
