In a blistering (and now deleted) Twitter rampage...
Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams posted a series of blistering tweets aimed at The Strokes yesterday (July 31st) - and then deleted them.

The songwriter is named in Lizzy Goodman's new book Meet Me In The Bathroom as the (alleged) source of Albert Hammond Jr.'s heroin addiction.

Ryan Adams dismissed the claims, and the matter appeared to be settled until the wee small hours of the morning.

He wrote on Twitter: "Abert [sic] Hammond is a more horrible songwriter than his dad. If that's possible... It rains in Sthtrn CA & washes out the dirt. As you were. RA. x"

The songwriter then added: "Julian Casablancas: who got you strung out on lasagna tho?"

Ryan Adams then further alluded to the book by saying: "I should've forced them to get addicted to writing better songs. Too bad @thekillers did it for them."

The tweets have since been deleted, although Pitchfork have screenshots.

The Strokes have declined to comment.
