“And her weapon of choice is a red-patterned dress…”

At the time he was making his first solo album Heartbreaker in 2000, Ryan Adams was still fully in thrall to Amy Lombardi — who he once told me was “my Anita Pallenberg, the coolest and most beautiful woman I’ve ever met” (a quote that’s in chapter eight of “Losering”). Lombardi was the muse behind many of Ryan’s best songs back then, and Easter eggs about her aren’t too hard to find out there.

For example, there’s this photo Lombardi posted a while back to her instagram account, in which she’s wearing a dress that figures prominently into the lyrics of the Heartbreaker song “Don’t Ask for the Water.” Much as I’d like to post that picture here, I shouldn’t. So take a listen to the song below while you cruise over to take a look here.
