BryanAdams negotiated the shifting tides of the 80s so well that it neverseemed like he was changing his music to fit the times. A veteran of the70s studio arena rock game, Adams struck out on his own in the early80s, turning into a star in his native Canada and making headway withhis 1983 album, Cuts Like a Knife. All of this was a prelude toReckless, the 1984 album that turned him into an internationalsuperstar, selling by the truckloads in North America, Europe, and Asiathanks to the hits Run to You, Heaven, and Summer of 69. Fromthat point on, Adams was the most unassuming of rock stars, riding highon the charts and selling out arenas, even breaking Billboard recordswith his power ballad Everything I Do (I Do It for You), but neverquite dominating the public imagination (or earning the criticalrespect) as such peers as Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp.Nevertheless, Adams remained a formidable presence on the Americancharts into the mid-90s, and while the popularity of his new recordsstarted to slip after that, he retained his audience in Canada and theU.K. and his 80s hits remained radio staples as he began a career as aphotographer.
