Ryan Adams lashes out at The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr., Julian Casablancas

“He’d heard that Ryan would come and give me heroin, so he was just like, ‘If you come to my apartment again with heroin, I’m going to kick your ass.’ I hadn’t really been doing it in baggie form until Ryan showed up. So it’s like if someone is trying to give your friend a lobotomy — you’re gonna step in.”
In the book, Adams refuted that characterization. I would never ever have given him a bag of heroin. If that's possible. Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams   blasted garage rockers and erstwhile associates The Strokes on social media Monday, insulting guitarist   Albert Hammond Jr. I was around, and we actually spent time together. and frontman Julian Casablancas. It rains in Sthtrn CA & washes out the dirtAs you wereRA x

Julian Casablancas: who got you strung out on lasagna tho? He would show me his songs. It was like, ‘No one ever listens to my music, but do you want to hear it?’ I would be like, ‘F— yeah!’ I loved him so deeply. It can take a person’s soul away. https://t.co/6GmCNFJsvM

Show Full Article While the precise motivation behind Adams’ tweets was unclear, the outburst came in the wake of the release of   Lizzy Goodman’s book   Meet Me in the Bathroom: Rebirth and Rock and Roll in New York City, 2001–2011, which depicts the trio’s relationship as rather contentious. Adams subsequently tweeted about Casablancas being “strung out on lasagna” and referred to   “Last Impressions of Actual Songs,” an apparent shot at the Strokes’ 2006 album First Impressions of Earth. — Ryan Adams (@TheRyanAdams) July 31, 2017

I sold more t shirts last night than people who actually made it thru a single Voidz song, bro What's he gonna do? “If anything, I really felt like I had an eye on him in a way that they never did. Representatives for Adams declined to comment on the tweets, and reps for Hammond and Casablancas did not immediately respond to request for comment. I can’t remember the details, to be honest. “I remember Julian threatening to beat Ryan up if he hung out with me, as a protective thing,” Hammond is quoted as saying in the book. I think heroin just kind of crosses a line. Of the former, Adams tweeted,   “[Albert] Hammond is a more horrible songwriter than his dad. If that’s possible. “That’s so sad, because Albert and I were friends,” he said. He was definitely a bad influence.”
Casablancas reportedly said, “Did I specifically tell Ryan to stay away from Albert? It rains in Sthtrn CA & washes out the dirt.” (Hammond’s father is a musician in his own right.)
Adams signed the tweet, “As you were RA x,” an apparent nod to Liam Gallagher, a fellow outspoken musician. Abert Hammond is a more horrible songwriter than his dad. I remember being incredibly worried about him, even after I continued to do speedballs.”
