I almost swore I posted here before, but even though i think he's an obnoxious moron, he writes some amazing songs. I think everyone and their brother covered "When the stars go blue" (The corrs with Bono recording was an amazing). I also like New York, The Hardest Part and Tina Toledo's Street Walkin' Blues. He's actually one of the better writers out there, I just wish he wasn't a vacillating moron when it came to interviews.

lol. Probably not.

I was out the other night and some drunk guy was playing "Oh My Sweet Carolina" on the steps of a burger joint in Harvard Sq. and I really thought "whoever wrote this song probably thought this was how it was supposed to be played." (when he finished I asked him who wrote it)

Ryan Adams has the right idea about country music, he never gets cliched-ly indulgent. I don't think he has ever said "well this is what im supposed to remember fondly about the south" or anything like that. You get the feeling that he actually felt these things, even if he didn't. And the best thing I can say about him is that you get that feeling in cover versions of his songs as well, its written so well that you can hear his emotion when other people sing it.

As I mentioned before, he can be a Doherty-level twat, especially with his early comments on the Stripes, but hes clearly one of the five best reasons the american music market isn't dead.

I always kinda thought he was alternative. I was kinda surprised to see him on Letterman (and to have him proclaim he was one of their personal favorite acts). Is he really popular in the states?

Letterman said he was one of his favorite acts?

The states can't be gaged like that. Whats "popular" is gone in an album. He's popular with those who count. Like many things crossing the Atlantic, it changes meaning. Your popular should be translated loosely as our "enduring."

Does he enjoy success in the country or mainstream album charts? Have people who don't frequent internet forums and are only superficially interested in music heard of him? Does yo mamma know who he is? That kind of stuff. The reason I ask is because if I'm not mistaken, he's huge in Britain (or at least the British press seems to give him a lot of attention). I'm not sure if he packs stadiums in the U.S...he should. He's put out at least three astounding country rock albums, that should have solidified his status as one of the best singer songwriters of the new millennium.
