Ryan Adams Pens Lengthy Apology For How He 'Mistreated People'

Ryan Adams has apologized for his past behavior more than a year after he was accused of sexual harassment and emotional abuse by several women.

"There are no words to express how bad I feel about the ways I've mistreated people through my life and career," the singer-songwriter and poet said in a letter published by the Daily Mail. "All I can say is that I'm sorry."

Acknowledging that no amount of growth will ever take away the suffering he had caused, Adams said, "I will never be off the hook and I am fully accountable for my harmful behavior, and will be for my actions moving forward."

He made it clear that sobriety and mental health are priorities in his life.

In February 2019, the New York Times published a report quoting seven women that claimed they were misused by Adams offering to help them with their careers

The musician was also accused of being emotionally and verbally abusive at times.

Billie Joe Armstrong Shares Cover Of John Lennon's 'Gimme Some Truth'

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong shared a cover of John Lennon's protest song "Gimme Some Truth," to his Instagram page last Wednesday (July 1).

The song, written during the Vietnam war, was originally released on the Beatle's 1971 solo album Imagine. It was covered by Generation X in 1978 and by several others, including Ash, Pearl Jam, Primal Scream and Cheap Trick, later on.

"Welcome to no fun Monday hump day.. this song was written by John Lennon. The first time I heard it was from one of my all-time faves Generation X!" Armstrong wrote, and added that his rendition falls "somewhere in between" the original and Billy Idol's recordings.

"I've had enough of reading things/By neurotic psychotic pigheaded politicians/All I want is the truth, just give me some truth," sings Armstrong.

Over the past few months, Armstrong has recorded several covers, aiming to keep fans entertained during the COVID-19 quarantine.
