Ryan Adams Discovers the Greatness of The Beatles’ Revolver
Ryan Adams is currently on the road to discovering the Beatles. Yes, he is well aware he's coming into the game a little later than most, but as Adams explains, he heard far more Rolling Stones growing up in North Carolina than he did Beatles, so it is never something he came across.
Last night Adams dug into the band's most expansive, psychedelic work, 1966's Revolver and tweeted his thoughts on the album along with some commentary from his former bandmate and studio collaborator Benmont Tench.

I remember bringing it home, & sitting on the floor in front of my folks' console stereo: yes, the US stereo version. I was stunned & melted https://t.co/OVvoUpUhbv— benmont tench III (@benchten) June 18, 2017
This record is so fucking weird.— Ryan Adams (@TheRyanAdams) June 18, 2017
The sequence is also super weird. But it TOTALLY flows.
