Bryan Adams was a popular mainstream rock & roller
artist emerging in the '80s. He produced a series
of platinum albums and Top Ten hits. At the beginning
of his career, he relied more on rock than on pop,
but as his career developed, he became known for his
ballads. Both his rock and his slow numbers were the
result of his skill, both as a writer and a performer.
November 5, 1959, Kingston, Ontario, Canada
As a songwriting partner of Jim Vallence, Bryan Adams
wrote songs for several Canadian rockers, including
Loverboy and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, as well as
Bonnie Tyler and Kiss. In 1981, Adams landed a solo
record contract with A&M Records and released an album.
It failed to make the charts. The following year,
he released 'You Want It, You Got It', which managed
to reach the U.S. charts. His professional breakthrough
came in 1983 with 'Cuts Like a Knife'. 'Straight from
the Heart', a ballad taken from the record, reached
the Top Ten before the album was released. The album
also made it into the Top Ten, while the title track
peaked at number 15. A third single, 'This Time',
reached number 24.
1984 saw Adams releasing, 'Run to You', which became
his second Top Ten single. It also became his first
British hit, peaking at number 11. 'Reckless', also
released in 1984, was a huge success, spending two
weeks at the top of the U.S. album charts and selling
over five million copies! Besides 'Run to You', Reckless
featured five other Top 15 singles, including number
one 'Heaven', "Summer of '69", 'Somebody', 'One Night
Love Affair', and "It's Only Love", a duet with Tina
Turner. Released in 1987, 'Into the Fire', proved
disappointing in comparison, spending 33 weeks on
the charts, selling one million copies, and spawning
only one Top Ten hit, 'Heat of the Night'.
Four years later, Adams returned with "(Everything
I Do) I Do It for You", the theme song for the movie
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The song became a huge
hit, spending seven weeks at number one in the U.S.
In Britain, it was at the top of the charts for an
astonishing 15 weeks, the longest stay at number one
since 1953. The success of "(Everything I Do) I Do
It for You" re-established Adams as a star, setting
the stage for the triple-platinum, 'Waking Up the
Neighbours', released in the fall of 1991, and producing
number two hit 'Can't Stop This Thing We Started',
'There Will Never Be Another Tonight', and two Top
15 singles. The following year, Bryan released a greatest-hits
collection, 'So Far, So Good', featuring a new track,
'Please Forgive Me'. The ballad became another Top
Ten success, as did the similar-sounding "All for
Love", which was a collaboration with Rod Stewart
and Sting for the film, 'The Three Musketeers. It
reached number one.
In the summer of 1995, Adams had his fourth number
one single, "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?,"
taken from the album, 'Don Juan DeMarco', the single
spent five weeks at number one. Bryan Adams released
"18 'til I Die", his first new studio album
since 1991's Waking Up the Neighbours, in the summer
of 1996. On a Day like Today followed in 1998.
