“I heard about that. That’s so cool. Have you heard it? I’d love to hear it. That’s rad, man.”
Last week, Ryan Adamstold NME: “I covered the whole album on my fourtrack. I covered it as a blues record. My band has heard it, they all think it’s pretty funny. It isn’t making fun ofStrokes, its because I really like them a lot.”
Hammond added that he knewRyan Adams. “We hang out together in a bar in New York sometimes. He’s cool,” he said, but added that Strokes had no intention of returning the gesture and recording some of the rising star’s tracks.
