Okay! this is insane!!!

Okay, I know there's been some PASTE LIST talk already. But this just makes me CRAZY!!!!

Paste Magazine’s Top 100 Living Songwriters
43. Ryan Adams
52. Paul Westerberg

I mean, the irony contained in that ranking can fill the ROSE-BOWL like 2 million times!!!! I'm sorry (even though the guy is SOMETIMES okay and I have nothing major against him) if Ryan Adams is nothing else - HE IS A FUCKIN WANNABE PAUL WESTERBERG!!! Hello!!!!?!!!!!?!!!!!?

Sorry, had to let that out.

I think you ought call your friends at Kaiser-Permanente and get some meds. If they give you the correct ones, wash them down with beer, ESPECIALLY if they say "do not take with alcohol".
The results will be a higher tolerance for Mr. Adams, and somehow, a seething detesting of Mr. Westerberg.
I don't know how this works, but it really does.
It didn't on me of course, because I've yet to listen to anything by Mr. Adams in the last few years, so I don't have that problem.
But if I did, drug-man, here I come!

Adams ranking higher than Saint Paul is a joke. I think half of that list is a joke. Where's Todd Snider? Kevn Kinney? Mark and Gary, just to name a few. --I would bet that a high percentage of the voters were under 25 years of age.

you have a right to your opinion, there's plenty of "famous" folks I ain't heard a thing by also, most notably to the folks here being one fella named Ryan Adams. I bought a Whiskeytown CD years ago, haven't caught up with 'im since, except for watching Elton drool over him on VH-1 once--Elton was rather, "enamored" with this young man....
