I like a bunch of Ryan Adam’s albums and some whiskey town and the cardinals stuff. He also has some junk and he is a dick. Did some nasty shit to a bunch of women musicians .

I saw him live around the time of Heartbreaker and Gold. He was great for about four or five songs and then got too drunk to be coherent.
I quite like a few of his songs but I don't get excited by them. A talent, for sure, but a second division talent in my eyes. About on a level with Nick Lowe.

I didn't know about that and I had to look it up. He's never seemed very likeable and this doesn't really surprise me. Another reason not to like him though.
Bugger off.

Exactly my experience, though the night I saw him - at Brixton in 2002 - he was already drunk when he came onstage.
He played an hour of tuneless dirges, none of which I enjoyed or recognised, then played a *blistering* version of The Strokes' Last Night and collapsed drunk into the drumkit
I left
Never bothered since.
The Complete Jah Bob Mp3 set now available in the usual place, should you want one.

I saw twice in 2003 and agree he went down hill as the show went on. However, I've seen him a few times in the 2010's and liked his shows.

I like he had pinball machines on his stage set up. :lol:
