With his raspy lower tenor, he has a classic rock & roll voice. His grasp of creating memorable melodic and simple lyrical hooks has earned him an enormous string of hits including "Cuts Like a Knife" (#15), "Run to You" (#6), "Summer of 69" (#5), "Heat of the Night" (#6), "Heaven" (#1), and "(Everything I Do) I Do it for You," the #1 hit from the movie ROBIN HOOD. ~ Rick Clark ---------- Related Artists ----------- Johnny & the Distractions Mellencamp, John Cougar ---------- Roots & Influences ---------- Byrds Beatles Springsteen, Bruce Joel, Billy Mellancamp, John Cougar Rolling Stones ---------- Bibliography ---------- Gregory, Hugh |Bryan Adams: The Inside Story|Boxtree Birthdate & Place : Nov 5 , 1959 Kingston, Ontario, Canada AMG Artist ID # : P000003502 Chronological Album List |Date| Label | Number |R S T|Rating --------------------------------+----+----------+--------+-----+------ So Far So Good |1993|A&M | | | Waking up the Neighbours |1991|A&M |5367 |R S | Good Fan Box Set |1991|A&M |7105 | | Poor (Everything I Do) I Do It For |1991|A&M |12380 | | Into the Fire |1987|A&M |3313 |R S T| OK Reckless |1984|A&M |5013 |R S T|+BestA Reckless |1984| | | | Cuts Like a Knife |1983|A&M |3288 |R S T| Good You Want It You Got It |1981|A&M |3154 | S T| OK Bryan Adams |1980|A&M |3100 | S T| OK Reckless |Z |A&M |5013 | | Reckless |Z | | | | Can't Stop This |Z |A&M |12386 | | OK All-Music Guide Album Details (Alphabetical Order) ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : (Everything I Do) I Do It For Artist : Bryan Adams Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Date : 1991 (approx.)
