I Hate Your Answering Machine
I may be the last man on earth still trying to like Ryan Adams, and it's getting harder every day. The latest bit of damning evidence: the sad, heartfelt, whiny, petulant, absurdly misguided message he left on the answering machine of Chicago Sun-Times rock critic Jim Derogatis in response to a negative review. (Note to Adams: MP3 files work for more than just songs...)

If Adams was going to use The Replacements' sound as an influence for his last record, he might've also paid a little attention to their lyrics. Has he never heard the last song on 'Let it Be'?
