Ryan Adams: Almost quit music
American singer-songwriter Ryan Adams has revealed that he almost quit music after being diagnosed with a hearing disorder two years ago.
The-36-year old rock star, whose birth name is David Ryan Adams, announced a temporary cessation from music after he was diagnosed with ear-ringing disease Meniere`s. His fans got shock when he simply disappeared from the scene.
In a conversation, Ryan told, "I took a year with just figuring out how extensive the symptoms were and what was really happening in my body".
The singer said, "It wasn’t because it was so hard to do what I was doing. It was because I’m doing this in a world where there are people I should not be listening to who are saying things like, ‘I wish you would stop making records’".
At the end of the conversation, he said, "There is a lot of hate out there for the dumbest reasons, and that’s really hard to deal with because I make records. I don’t make Styrofoam. I’m not like a commodities broker who’s like ripping people off on the side".
