An audio recording of Ryan Adams — the multiple-Grammy-nominated folk singer and songwriter from Jacksonville, North Carolina — performing a acoustic cover version of the DANZIG classic “Mother” as the encore of his May 4 concert at La Cigale in Paris, France can be streamed below.
Adams has previously performed stripped-down versions of IRON MAIDEN‘s “Wasted Years”, RATT‘s “Round And Round” and DIO‘s “Holy Diver”.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Adams praised metal legends AC/DC, BLACK SABBATH and OZZY OSBOURNE, and gave his stamp of approval to the newest album from RATT, 2010’s “Infestation”. “It is so good. Put track two on, sit down on your couch and wait for fucking Memorex hair,” he said, only half-joking. “The sickest guitar parts ever. It’s like every song is ‘Round And Round’. Every song is that good.”
