I'll note that I don't care that Ryan Adams is a brat, or whether he's derivative, I just enjoy the whole spectacle. His whole tortured artist persona is calculated, yes, but I love to eat it up even knowing that. It is, in the end, a part of the genius. (and I have heard Paul Westerberg and Wilco).
I'm listening to Love IS Hell Part 2 right now...
