For a while, hip hop beefs were a matter of genuine concern, but fights among rock stars are almost always of the David Lee Roth / Van Halen, hilarity ensues variety. So feel free to enjoy the latest comments by rock troubadour Ryan Adams, pontificating in the five minutes he has free between recording albums on Las Vegas punching bags the Killers:
"Fame is an unnatural construct and those who go in search of it are the least likely to find it. I mean, really, does anyone want to sit through a show by The Killers? What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unfortunately with the exception of The Killers."
Hopefully this will get Brandon Flowers to put on his fancy fighting jacket and come looking for trouble, but Ryan Adams should be aware that criticizing the Killers is like dynamiting fish in a barrel. If he wants to gain any tough guy cred for calling out other artists, he should know enough not to pick on the nerdiest kid on the playground. [Angry Ape]
