Ryan Adams Quitting Cardinals

Say it ain’t so Ryan! According to Ryan Adams he is splitting from his backing group the Cardinals & taking a hiatus from recording. Though, according to Rolling Stone he does already have a new album (Dear Impossible) in the pipeline. He cryptically talks about losing someone he loved, vague references to people yelling at him & just stating that it isn’t his dream anymore. That’s commendable, if you ask me.

I understand completely the feeling that even though you’re good at something, if it’s not what you love then stop. I had the same problem with Parcheesi, I was once ranked #1 in the world at the game, but gave it up to follow my true passion, scrapbooking. Nothing like a good scrapbook to remember when I was a great Parcheesi player. You’ll miss it, Ryan. You’ll miss it.

    Sad sad indeed — but yes, I suspect he’ll knock us off our feet when (and I say ‘when’, not ‘if’!) he comes back.

    Are you serious about the Parcheesi ranking??? Maybe Ryan would be game to play during his hiatus…

      OH for sure he’ll be back. That’s not even a question. This is a guy who adores performing. I think he suffers from artist A.D.D. where he needs to shake it up every few years. He did it with Whiskeytown, when he was solo & now. He’ll latch on to another band or do his own thing again. The Parcheesi thing was a ruse for my true love of badminton.
