Crazy genius person.
There’s been a lot of Ryan Adams in my life over the last few days. Lots of time outside and on the road n’at. One YouTube video led to another and now I think I understand why Ryan Adams makes incredible music. It’s because he’s a little bit nuts.
That picture is from a long time ago. During his homeless/strung-out looking phase.
Bridge between crazy and genius:
– Live In Jamaica
– Touch, Feel, and Lose (live)
– Oh My Sweet Carolina (live with Emmylou Harris)… I would have DIED to see this, FYI
– To Be Young Is To Be Sad Is To Be High (live at Austin City Limits)
But my favorite Ryan Adams thing from the past few weeks is definitely this:
“…Ah, outer space – you rule me.” – referring to the planet-sized diamond
I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN.
