Born in Kingston, Ontario in 1959, Bryan Adams spent much of childhood traveling around the world. Because
his father was a Canadian diplomat, Adams lived in various places around the world in his early years, from the Middle East
to Vienna, Austria. As a young teen, Adams held run-of-the-mill jobs like delivering papers, working the cash register at
a pet shop, and washing dishes at a local restaurant. When he and his family returned to Canada in 1973, Adams decided to
buckle down and seriously concentrate on his musical career. Even though his rocker vibe and emotional lyrics made women across
the world swoon, Adams claims that he was too focused on his music to pay any attention to girls in high school.
1983, Adams released his album, Cuts like a Knife, which catapulted him into the spotlight in North America, with both Americans
and his fellow Canadians obsessing over this charismatic rocker. Just one short year later, he became an international sensation
with his best-selling album, Reckless. Part of his massive success is due in part to Journey, whom Adams opened for after
releasing Cuts like a Knife. His musical talents, exceptional songwriting skills, and ability to deliver knockout performances
have made him the best-selling Canadian rock artist of all time. Over the past three decades, Adams has recorded 16 albums,
received 15 Grammy nominations, and won 20 Juno Awards. To recognize his international success and his impact on music, he
was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2011. So if you ever find yourself in Hollywood, make sure to search for Bryan
Adams' golden star.
