In a long blog post, Ryan Adams claims he’s quitting the music business after his current tour wraps up:
me- 34-a non smoker and happy, for the first time in my life.. i am excited to finish this wonderful time i have had with the cardinals and whatever new adventures may come after march. atlanta will be my last venture with the band and i am grateful for the time we have had and maybe someday we will have more stories to tell together. i am however ready for quieter times as i think it is very evident i am struggling with some balance and hearing issues.
also, no drama or anything but i am okay to step back from all of this right now and i think i did enough manic blogging when i felt alone and isolated during the last few years of travel.
In other words:
Man, we were killin’ time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin’ can last forever.
And now the times are changin’
Look at everything that’s come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you, wonder what went wrong…
Sorry, that was too easy. But come on, dude: buy some ear plugs and stop whining already.
