9780292725843: Ryan Adams: Losering, a Story of Whiskeytown (American Music (University of Texas))

Before he achieved his dream of being an internationally known rock personality, Ryan Adams had a band in Raleigh, North Carolina. Whiskeytown led the wave of insurgent-country bands that came of age with No Depression magazine in the mid-1990s, and for many people it defined the era. Adams was an irrepressible character, one of the signature personalities of his generation, and as a singer-songwriter he blew people away with a mature talent that belied his youth. David Menconi witnessed most of Whiskeytown's rocket ride to fame as the music critic for the Raleigh News & Observer, and in Ryan Adams, he tells the inside story of the singer's remarkable rise from hardscrabble origins to success with Whiskeytown, as well as Adams's post-Whiskeytown self-reinvention as a solo act.

Menconi draws on early interviews with Adams, conversations with people close to him, and Adams's extensive online postings to capture the creative ferment that produced some of Adams's best music, including the albums Strangers Almanac and Heartbreaker. He reveals that, from the start, Ryan Adams had an absolutely determined sense of purpose and unshakable confidence in his own worth. At the same time, his inability to hold anything back, whether emotions or torrents of songs, often made Adams his own worst enemy, and Menconi recalls the excesses that almost, but never quite, derailed his career. Ryan Adams is a fascinating, multifaceted portrait of the artist as a young man, almost famous and still inventing himself, writing songs in a blaze of passion.

About the Author:

David Menconi has been the music critic at the Raleigh News & Observer since 1991, and he misses the days when it was possible to see Whiskeytown play in Raleigh every week. His writing has also appeared in Spin, Billboard, the New York Times, and a host of publications that regrettably no longer exist. Chief among the latter is No Depression magazine, for which he was a contributing editor. His byline appeared in every issue except one during the magazine’s thirteen-year run.

Review:

"...packed with tales of magical performances and utterly desperate train wrecks."-- Publishers Weekly

"Often funny, sad and poignant at the same time."-- The Independent Weekly

"...the definitive book."-- Mega-Superior-Gold.blogspot.com

"Author David Menconi, music critic for the Raleigh, NC, News & Observer, pulls back the curtain on folk icon Ryan Adams in his new book, Ryan Adams: Losering, A Story Of Whiskeytown. From Adams' earliest experiences listening to country music on his grandmother's radio, through his obsessive punk rock phase and dusty-throated alternative-country explosion, Menconi leaves no stone unturned." - Todd Sterling, ReDigi
