Canadian rock star Bryan Adams received the 2,435th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday in Los Angeles.
Adams recalled his first visit to Hollywood Boulevard at age 16.
“Marveling at the stars and being part of it” never entered his mind, he said at the ceremony, which was cut short due to the rain. Adams added that he was “humbled” by the honor.
He thanked his family for being supportive over the years, as well as his manager Bruce Allen, whom he said was “part of my family.”
He also credited late photographer Herb Ritts.
National Hockey League icon (and fellow Canadian) Wayne Gretzky spoke at the ceremony, praising Adams for his music over the years and his charity work. “On behalf of all Canadians congratulations to you and your entire family,” Gretsky said.
Adams recently returned from India where he played several sold-out shows. He is set to perform songs from his latest album, Bare Bones, Apr. 9 at UCLA’s Royce Hall.
Adams joins other Canadians who have recently received stars, including James Cameron and members from the rock band Rush.
