They create forums for us, fans of the artists, to break out what we would like to hear given the choice. Maybe a song that hasnt been played live in years. Sometimes a song that hasnt been played live ever. They are let loose into the pop-culture ether, with hopes that the wished-upon songs will reach the artists subconscious and shimmy their way into an upcoming setlist.
However, when referring to the [insert every synonym for prolific here, or just say prolific] Ryan Adams, there is a greater chance that this artist may actually read this article and lend us his ear. Adams has referenced various articles in print media on his Facebook page over the past couple of months, including a review from our own Dan Caffrey. So, Mr. Adams, if you are indeed reading this, know that we look forward to the rest of your tour and are thrilled to see your older songs coupled with those from Ashes & Fire. The fact that youve included selections from your Whiskeytown era makes us happy to no end.
The following is just a wish in the form of 10 songs wed love to hear you play again sometime during your solo outings. Just wait until youve got a full band backing you again. Well have a whole new list to lay at your feet!
