Singer/songwriter Ryan Adams was looking forward to his recent chat with LA Weekly writer Drew Fortune. Adams is a big fan of two of the publication’s scribes and expected to talk about his new album, Ashes and Fire. Instead, the conversation went south after Fortune asked about Adams’ sobriety, his wife (Mandy Moore) and the perception that Adams is “too prolific.” Eventually Adams cut the call off and told Fortune to study up for a follow-up conversation the next day.
When LA Weekly published the interview, Fortune framed the situation to say that Adams hung up on him. Ryan had such a major issue with that mis-characterization of what happened that he penned a response to the interview that is way more interesting than Drew’s article. We highly suggest reading Fortune’s feature and then Adams’ response for an example of how not to interview a notoriously hard person to interview.
