The New York Times has uncovered the shocking news that Ryan Adams has used drugs!
“Without exaggerating, it is a miracle I did not die. I snorted heroin a lot — with coke. I did speedballs every day for years. And took pills. And then drank. And I don’t mean a little bit. I always outdid everybody.”
In addition, it sounds like Adams is finally taking the advice I gave him back in 2003:
“I got good advice on what tunes seemed to be working, and how to pace myself,” he said about [manager John] Silva’s help in putting together “Easy Tiger” from the dozens of songs he was considering. “He led me to view that process as a type of discipline — like going to the gym or something. Focus. Work on one thing. Make the one thing really good.”
Looks like our boy is finally growing up. Too bad. Hope this isn’t the end of such charming oddballs as “Look Who’s Got a Web Site.” Because that shit was funny. Kevincostner.com, what the fuck?
