this is incredible.
Wasn't she doing heroin when she was pregnant with Franny B anyway? Kinda negates her arguement.
Also how fucking slow a human being do you have to be to take 5yrs to notice something like this? Didn't Ryan record RnR in 2003?
No matter how shit Easy Tiger was and how awful and noodling The Cardinals have become as a live band...

Courtney Love is a truly despicable little turd and anything that brings her unhappiness should be celebrated.
She may be teetering on the verge of insanity, but she's written some cracking tunes. True, Adams is a better songwriter, but don't write her off just yet.
If she reckons she'd been ripped off by him, she should just take it to court.
I remember Adams saying in interviews he recorded Rock and Roll on a credit card. Comedy!
She is an awful awful person.
Yeah Ryan did say it was on a credit card - I guess now we know whose card it was!
You seem like a bandwagon-jumper. She's just an American party girl, nothing wrong with that. She may have mental issues, and addiction-related problems, but why do they bother you so much? Now, I'm not doing a Chris Crocker here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHmvkRoEowc), but, you know, it's not like she's KILLED anyone. Sheesh.
How exactly? Because I think how she has conducted herself over the past few years, how she has treated people and how she took heroin whilst pregnant with the child she now claims to care about is pretty disgusting - that makes me a bandwagon jumper?
Oh and the Scouting For Girls comment was just lazy. Yeah RnR isn't a great record by any stretch but jeez...
I think other people have commented on the amount of work Ryan Adam's put into the album: I think I've given it it's dues. And, for fuck's sake, this isn't Heat. I have no interest in her parental skills, but her daughter seems to love her, so she must be doing something right.
I love Nick Broomfield as much as anyone, but ... come on?
probably one of the best albums from that era, ryan adams is mediocrity personified
Is a terribly terribly terrible album - if you enjoy that for long I reckon you'd love Scouting For Girls - about the same level of immediacy in the song-writing and care taken over the lyrics. Hole released some great stuff - My Body, The Hand Grenade is well worth anyone getting - Beautiful Son, 20 Years In The Dakota, Retard Girl...
But that's just a reflection of the amount of effort that went into making it. It was written and recorded in a matter of days as a fuck you to his label for rejecting Love Is Hell.
Ryan worst-album-not-called-Rock n Roll shits over Hole's best stuff.
remains my favourite Ryan Adams album, and this has made me like it even more.
Saying that, I barely understand a word of what C.Love is on about. Stupid lady.
you really must have terrible taste.
Courtney Love is an always will be a retarded train-wreck.
but live through this is better than any blandfest adams has ever done
Some acknowledged mental problems, and addictions.
Trainwreck? Well, yeah, but that's got balls-all to do with the music. Kurt wasn't exactly James Blunt, was he?
Ryan Adams is mostly great. Hole had glimmers of greatness, but yeah, she's no sage.
Rock N Roll, however, isn't great. In fact, it's about as good as 'Celebrity Skin'.
ryan adams is pretty dull
and if edward norton says it it must be true
250BC called. It wants its news back.
GET with the times.
I won't hear a bad word said against it.
I think it will be 'remembered' better than it was received.
It was my ticket into Ryan Adamsville and I still adore it.
Much as it may be one of his weaker records, it has been responsible for a lot of people I know getting into Ryan's stuff.
I listened to RnR last night after a few shots and a few beers in the sun...certainly the right time to listen to it. Might not be a masterpiece but there are some corkers on there and, above all, it's not Easy Tiger.
how she says blah blah blah "hated you-" didn't she say that about Kurt "hating" Dave Grohl?
Although I like some of her out pourings creatively, its plain to dyspher the bullshit claims in her personnal life.
So she was dealt a shitty card when she was a kid, but she had agreat deal of good fortune since then. I somehow don't think she will be a reformed character too soon.
