The Strokes And Ryan Adams' Chess Challenge

Subscribe Ryan Adams

Rocker RYAN ADAMS is a chess fanatic, and he insists THE STROKES are just as obsessed with the intellectual game as he is.

Unlike many rock stars, who relax by hurling televisions out of hotel windows, the American hitmakers would rather pit their wits against each other over a chess board.

He explains, "Chess has become a pretty rockin' deal for (Adams' backing band) THE CARDINALS, and I think NIKOLAI (FRAITURE) from The Strokes is pretty damn good.

"I actually asked him for some tips the other day."
