Who is Bryan Adams?
Bryan Guy Adams was born under the zodiac sign of Scorpio on 5 November 1959, in Kingston, Ontario, Canada; he’s a singer-songwriter, record producer, guitarist, photographer, and one of the best-selling music artists of all time. He’s known for his hit songs such as “Everything I Do”, “Straight From the Heart”, and “Heaven”, among others; he’s inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Canada’s Walk of Fame, the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Broadcast Hall of Fame.
He was raised by his parents, Elizabeth Jane Watson and Captain Conrad J. Adams, who worked as a United Nations (UN) peacekeeping observer, and as a Canadian Foreign Service diplomat, thus the family moved a lot. They lived in Portugal, Austria, and Israel, until they settled in North Vancouver, where Bryan and his younger brother, Bruce, attended a local high school.
Bryan had an interest in music from an early age, and bought his first guitar at the age of 12. He left school to play in the band Shock, and used the funds his parents saved for his college education to buy a piano.
Bryan sold pet food and worked as a dishwasher in a restaurant to provide for himself; at the age of 15, he became the lead singer for the pub band, Sweeney Todd, and three years later met Jim Vallance, with whom he had a long-term partnership.
In February 1980, Bryan released his first, self-titled album, mostly co-written with Jim Vallance, followed by his second album “You Want It You Got It” in 1981, although his third album – “Cuts Like a Knife” – released in January 1983, was his breakout album. However, his fourth album, “Reckless” is the best-selling Canadian album of all time, for which he received the Diamond Sales Award.
During his career, Bryan has released 16 studio albums, and has won 15 Grammy Awards, and 20 Juno Awards, while he’s been three times nominated for an Oscar, and five times for a Golden Globe Award.
In 1990, he was awarded the Order of British Columbia and was made a Member of the Order of Canada, while in 1998, he was promoted within the order to the rank of Officer of the Order of Canada.
Besides his music career, Bryan has also acted in several movies, such as “Pink Cadillac”, “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”, and “Twisted Tango”; he is also a renowned photographer, and in 2015 he was rewarded with Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in London; his works have been published in magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, and Harper’s Bazaar, among others.
Speaking about his personal life, before his relationship with Alicia, he was seeing Antonia Harrison, and in the ’90s was in a long-term relationship with Danish model Cecile Thomsen.
Bryan is active on social media accounts; his Instagram has been followed by almost a million people, and shared with his followers that his new album would be released on 11 March 2021.
This 62-year-old artist is known for his philanthropic activities, mostly through his foundation, but is also known as an animal rights activist, once stating: ‘I’ve been vegetarian for years now, since I was about 28. And of course, my motto has always been if you love animals, don’t eat them. I’m opposed to fur and any kind of use of animal products.’
