At Easy Street Records in The Junction:
Long before the Grammy nominations, sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall, and Hollywood friends and lovers, Ryan Adams fronted a Raleigh, North Carolina, outfit called Whiskeytown. Lumped into the burgeoning alt-country movement, the band soon landed a major label deal and recorded an instant classic: Strangers Almanac. That’s when tour manager Thomas O’Keefe met the young musician. For the next three years, Thomas was at Ryan’s side: on the tour bus, in the hotels, backstage at the venues. Packed with behind-the-scenes road stories, and, yes, tales of rock star debauchery, Thomas O’Keefe’s new book, “Waiting to Derail: Ryan Adams and Whiskeytown, Alt Country’s Brilliant Wreck” provides a firsthand glimpse into Ryan Adams at the most meaningful and mythical stage of his career.
