He looked fine during his recent breakfast streams, he was even doing the dishes.

He looked pretty fucked up on the breakfast stream yesterday. Maybe he was just really really REALLY high, but it seemed like a little more.

Re: Is he alright?

Three albums in one year was too good to be true. He set the bar too high for himself. This and that podcast I think.

Re: Is he alright?

Having been a fan since 99, I view this as just another in a long string of attention seeking induced meltdowns. In a week or two, we will get the usual obligatory BS fake apology he always puts out about like "choosing the light instead of the darkness" or "choose life" or so many other variations we have heard so many times its just sad at this point for a man in his mid 40s.

Kind of his own fault they aren't selling out in my opinion. It is a fast turnaround between him dropping first single in Jan (why you would pick one with an un radio friendly title like that is beyond me...) and expecting a tour to sell out instantly.

Lot of casual fans probably don't even know he has an album coming out yet. I talked to two close friends who have attended past concerts of his with me in Louisville and Cincinatti and who both have copies of several older records of his and neither knew he was releasing one, let alone three, this year or was even on tour.

Just not enough of a press cycle in my eyes. Granted, it was probably supposed to have started earlier and then the whole relapse happened, but come on, no reason to act like a 10 yr old about it...

Speaking of promotion. He hasn't done a single interview since what - 2017?

Re: Is he alright?

He should do the Father John Misty approach and delete all social media and give no interviews. Let the records speak for themselves. FJM did that with his latest and all his shows are sold out. Mystique is still a thing.

He can continue to hate him, but follow his example on the social media and interview blackout. It was a genius strategy that saved FJM from overexposure after that last press cycle.

And from his mental breakdown. The more I think of it, the FJM strategy could be the best for Ryan. Maybe Jason Isbell can pick up some advice when he tours with FJM.

Don't think he is a sociopath; he feels and needs too much.

Just catching up on all of this and...damn. This sucks. Sadly, it's all too familiar.

Hate to be a social media lurker, but it appears he unfollowed his manager (EDIT: or at least someone who appears to be his new manager) on instagram. Probably happened during last night's frenzy, maybe it's only temporary and things can settle down.

how do people know that though? Do they note all of the people he follows on instagram and then notice when one person isnt on it anymore?

No, I just clicked on the guy's profile to see if he had said anything given last night's stuff. It used to say "followed by @ryanadams" (because it knows I follow Ryan) and it no longer does.

I edited my original post to clarify that I don't know if it was ever confirmed this guy is a new manager. But it certainly appears he has some management role with Ryan.

Regardless, I wouldn't put any stock into it. We've seen a million social media fits. I only even mentioned it because it does speak to the depth of whatever he's going through and how it's obviously a little more complicated than just having the manager get involved. I'm sure people around him care and try their best.

Ryan has been managed by Ty Stiklorius at Friends at Work Management since he and John Silva split. He still follows her.
