Warning: If you own a Sabb, this video might make you cry.
If you haven’t noticed, Ryan Adams has been MIA for the past 4 years… Then, all of a sudden he resurfaces on youtube with a bunch of Vampre Weekend covers?? When asked about the videos he said, “I do it no justice, but I love it. I sung it imagining being on a beach made of diamonds with a darkened night sky full of twinkling sand.” I have a feeling he is messing with us, being extremely sarcastic….. or maybe, just maybe he is a huge Ezra Koenig fan. I don’t know, and I don’t really care. ANY Ryan Adams is better than NO Ryan Adams. In case you missed these, here you go.
