Comments Off on You Gotta See This: Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams loves cover tunes. It’s one of the threads lacing together his strange, highly personal musical journey. And while his diversity might seem like cheekiness on the surface, he seems ardently sincere in his affections for the work of others, handling each interpretation with a combination of kid gloves and healthy disrespect for the original versions. All of which brings us to Ryan’s version of this Iron Maiden number, captured on BBC Radio last Tuesday. On his Facebook page today, Adams remarked, “I grew up listening to Maiden in Eastern North Carolina where meta is a almost a currency among the lost souls there. Was an honor to learn this and play it at BBC. They are STILL making killer albums. Long Live!” We’ve included the original song for comparison purposes. Enjoy!
