Weezer and Ryan Adams Team Up

I'm not much for Weezer but I love me some Ryan Adams. Apparently Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo told MTV "I just wrote a song with Ryan Adams. Not Bryan, Ryan. It's a very stirring and emotional and powerful Weezer song. He was really inspiring to work with. ... He has a lot of wild and crazy energy. It's gonna be on the Weezer record. He plays lead guitar on it, but it will be on the Weezer record, for sure."

Hopefully we get some nasty guitar work from Mr. David Ryan Adams on this.

Ryan Adams - Black Clouds

How I miss this man. For those of you that haven't heard, Mr. David Ryan Adams wrote 11 new songs after attending Ronnie Dio's funeral and in his Facebook post he mentioned that he is "excited again." What does that mean for us? No idea really, it's kind of a tease actually. He knows there are a lot of fans out there waiting for him to release something, give us some sort of actual news or a snippet of actual Ryan Adams music (NOT Orion), so telling us he has some new songs and not giving us a taste hurts a little. I mean, I get it, this is just a rant from a frustrated fan.

Anyways, enjoy Black Clouds, it's a compilation of various sessions and live shows. There is a lot of excellent music on this compilation guys. You have to love the original mix of the song "Rock N' Roll" and we also get the only live version of "English Girls Approximately."

This is another treasure from Kyle V., thanks again man, you are a true gentleman.
