The cover comes 13 years after an infamous heckle
Ryan Adams covered similarly named singer Bryan Adams at a show earlier this week.
Adams performed at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Tuesday (April 28), taking on the 1984 hit ‘Summer of ’69’. Watch fan-shot footage below.
As Consequence Of Sound reports, the rendition refers to an incident at the same venue 13 years prior when an audience member yelled a request for the song for Adams’ entire solo set.
Adams later told Spin that such hecklers were “a bunch of fucking cocks”, adding, “They come to my shows just to provoke me. I had to go into therapy beause of whole Bryan Adams ‘Summer Of ’69’ thing.”
Ryan Adams recently dropped a new seven-inch called ‘I Do Not Feel Like Being Good’. The release features three acoustic songs in the vein of his ‘Love Is Hell’-era output which, as recalled by Adams via his record label Pax-AM’s website, were recorded with two mics in just one afternoon.
“I had been dragging a few of these behind me in that bag of songs I keep tied around my ribs since London ’09-ish,” he wrote in a statement. “I was shipwrecked in a hotel there with a bad case of the spins, just me and my Buck Owens acoustic guitar (his name is Buck, the guitars is) and we just sort of were riding out the turbulence.”
Earlier this year, Adams performed an acoustic version of ‘Gimme Something Good’ on US chat programme The Late Late Show. The singer/songwriter was accompanied by Detroit bass player Don Was, once of the band Was (Not Was).
