11 Questions: Bryan Adams
The Canadian rocker talks Justin Bieber and the economics of music before landing at the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
It was a little more than 30 years ago when Bryan Adams set out from his native Canada to make a name for himself as a musician and songwriter. He hoped for a foot in the door. What he got — and didn’t necessarily bargain for — was success on a global scale, boasting sales of tens of millions. The 51-year-old dad-to-be (he’s expecting his first child with personal assistant Alicia Grimaldi) continues to tour, bringing his treasure trove of hits (his biggest came during the 1990s) to some of the world’s more remote markets such as India and Nepal. And on March 21, he’ll have a permanent home in Los Angeles when Adams receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s a long way from being “just a spotty kid from North Van,” as Adams describes his pimply self in the early days. THR caught up with the Grammy-winning rocker.
