    So its looking like Ryan Adams exploited his "rockstar" status to take advantage of aspiring female artists sexually. So the question is should he be consigned to the league of dirty old perverts such as harvey weinstein or held up as a shining light of the hedonistic sex, drug and rock n roll lifestyle?

    Anyone who's ever had a ride should be shunned by society.

    Sure I still listen to some of Paul Gadd’s work, usually with a few drinks in me, and strictly using headphones...in case the fuzz hear and get the wrong idea and kick my door down.

    Sick **** but had a few belting tunes.

    Hope everybody who feels like their favourite musicians need to be upstanding morally decent people are not also fans of pretty much the majority of 60s/70s bands...

    From the live version...

    Best do it to be sure. He could be innocent of all accusations but then he could also be GUILTY. Best to over react to such things.

    I posted this in his gig thread but this is probably a more appropriate place for it.
    If this is true then that stuff with the young girl is very scummy stuff and that threatening to kill himself if someone doesn't come to see him immediately is just straight up emotional blackmail and very scummy too. However why is nobody questioning the behaviour of a few of these women? Phoebe Bridgers described him as obsessive and emotionally abusive so she broke up with him which is the best thing to do but then she accepts an offer to tour Europe with him and goes alone to his hotel room? No he shouldn't be naked when she walks in but she shouldn't be there either. The Courtney Jaye I don't see what he did wrong the way it's wrote in the article. He came on to her and she says she wasn't interested but she still got into a bed with him? No sex took place according to her but why be in the bed with him at all if you were there to record music? Get the fúck out of the studio and leave!

    Burn them from mp3 to CD.

    Then decide what to do.

    Deleting an mp3 isnt visual like putting CD into microwave.

    What?!! I have all of his albums! I love him!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,462 ✭✭✭Anesthetize


    Should I burn all my Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Marvin Gaye albums because of their alleged dalliances with underage groupies in the 70's? There seems to be a different standard these days.

    Ryan Adams has always had a reputation as an asshole. But that's never had any effect on my enjoyment of his albums.

    Thought I would chime in on this and may go a little off topic, Adams is an asshole, a talented prolific songwriter no doubt but an asshole all the same would have never pegged him for chatting up an underage girl, changes my entire opinion of him, he could be in big **** for this with the law and rightfully so, Going to be very hard for him to come back from it.

    It brings me onto something else I’ve noticed though and maybe I’m going off topic a bit here, call it a general trend I notice in the world today, someone I know was talking about this earlier today saying Ryan Adams is a scumbag etc etc never liked him etc now this individual is often jumping on social justice campaigns online etc and getting up on the high horse and calling people out for their bad behavior but I know this person to be no saint himself and a sleaze with girls, he almost does the high horse stuff so people think he’s a great guy, virtue signalling basically but I’m thinking the absolute neck, so insincere to be calling out other people and your no saint yourself, it just irks me & I guarantee if you took a magnifying glass to an awful lot of people who get outraged by celebrity misbehavior you wouldn’t find squeaky clean people, a lot of these social justice warriors bug the **** out of me and I think half of them are up to dodgy **** themselves.

    Do as I say, not as I do....

    Would you burn a Caravaggio? Ryan Adams on the other hand is of no cultural importance at all so it's easier to make a value judgement.

    been a fan of his music for 15 years. Class songwriter, fantastic musician with absolute talent to burn.

    however, anyone that ever saw any of his shows will admit that he is a little ‘out there‘ as an individual. It’s not part of his act..

    however too I’d hope that whatever I dunno impropriety or improprieties that have been alleged were involving consenting adults… creepy is one thing, and not cool, pestering not cool either, but anything of an underage variety is I’m sorry, unforgivable.

    Can I keep the whiskey town stuff? But seriously being a bit out there isn't a crime, from the available info the expoitation allegations could swing both ways.

  • Registered Users Posts: 24,945 ✭✭✭✭Strumms


    I thought there was some new allegation but seemingly this one back in Jan / Feb saw him cleared by the FBI…. That is pretty concrete…

    so I can listen to his music, without being creeped out.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,303 ✭✭✭Quantum Erasure


    well, if you need the ok from the FBI...

    No, just needed to know that he wasn’t that kind of bloke.

    an absolute Q of respected female musicians whom he worked with and even ex-girlfriends came out and supported him.
