Ryan Adams Loves The Foo

If Ryan Adams could calm down and stop with his media splurge, then maybe we could go a week without mentioning him. Things being what they are, however, he just keeps creating tidbits of awesomeness that we have to send your way. In this case, it was a radio performance of Foo Fighters' "Times Like These".

Adams' voice is sounding sweet as ever, and he manages to completely nail the tune. Still, we can't help missing Monsieur Grohl's voice just a little bit - it sort of makes the song, the way he strains a bit to hit those high notes. By contrast, Adams version is smooth, sweet, and frankly, also pretty awesome.

Thanks to Stereogum for the tip.
