Cover Alert | Ryan Adams Covers Mother By Danzig

Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams debuted his new band at headlining shows and festival appearances over the last week. Adams’ ensemble finds him backed by drummer Freddie Bokkenheuser, bassist Charlie Stavish, guitarist Mike Viola and keyboardist Daniel Clarke. While the group has mostly focused on Adams’ originals, including songs off his forthcoming self-titled album, there’s been one interesting cover of note that’s turned up at two recent shows.

Ryan Adams first covered Danzig’s highest charting single “Mother” at a pair of shows in 2012 and his new band dusted off the heavy metal hit this past Wednesday in Burlington and again on Friday at the Newport Folk Festival.
