    There is no thread about Bryan Adams in Chart Analysis, so i decided to open this one.




    Biography

    Adams was born in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, to English parents. From his grandmother he also inherited a Maltese ancestry. As Adams' father was a diplomat, he grew up travelling around the world with his parents. Subsequently, most of his youth was spent growing up in Europe and the Middle East, part of the time in Birre, Portugal, situated close to Lisbon; where he learned the Portuguese language. In 1973, Adams' family returned to Canada and settled down in North Vancouver, British Columbia. His musical goals began during his teenage years, and as he explained to Carlo D'Agostino from Rolling Stone magazine, "In high school, I was too far into my music to even pay attention to girls." He washed dishes, sold pet food, and worked in record stores, and at the age of 15, Adams quit school to play in nightclubs with bands like Shock and Sweeney Todd, who released an album called If Wishes Were Horses with the fifteen year old Adams as lead singer. A serendipitous meeting with drummer Jim Vallance in a Vancouver music store led to a song-writing partnership that continues to this day. They wrote songs for many other artists notably Neil Diamond, Kiss, Prism, Bonnie Raitt, Rod Stewart, Carly Simon and Loverboy to name a few. Adams and Vallance were both disenchanted with the club scene and both worked in Vancouver studios doing sessions. As O'Hara from Maclean's magazine phrased it, "Vallance was looking for a singer, Adams was looking for a route to musical respectability, and the two hit it off immediately."

    11 was a big commersial flop not doing good in any major market, the sales is said to be 500 000 copies, i think there are a bit lower. And live album bare bones bearly charted at all, i think his days as a sucsessfull chart artist is over...
    Of his work over the last 20 yearsm i like a few songs like East side story and claud number 9, but most of it isent that good to be honest.

    I can´t believe waking up the neighbours is only 3xplatinum ! everything I do was the super smash of that year and can´t stop this thing we started was succesful as well,, and many other singles kept the album alive for a while!!

    Is undercertified, isn´t ?
    But that's the way I like it baby I don't want to live forever
    and don't forget the joker
