Ryan Adams, April Fools’ Day pinball wizard

AprilFoolFor an April Fools’ Day gag to work, there has to be at least a modicum of plausibility to it. So yeah, on the one hand, the idea of Ryan Adams putting together an album composed entirely of audio snippets from his pinball-machine collection is ridiculous. But on the other hand, given some of the weird-ass stuff Ryan has done in the past (not to mention his love of all things pinball and crazy-prolific nature), this Pinball Blizzard almost seems possible; like something he would’ve done as DJ Reggie, The Shit or one of his many other guises.

Anyway, that’s the joke of this story on the site RiffYou — which promises an album that will “balance Heartbreaker-era melodies, Cold Roses‘ expansiveness and Gold’s eclectic twang-driven explorations, guided and influenced by the noises of arcade games – namely pinball machines.” It also has a faux-quote from Ryan, describing Pinball Blizzard as “so fucked up, I can’t help but love it.”

For those who might be slow on the uptake, there is a helpful April Fool disclaimer at the end.
