Straight from the heart: Bryan Adams dips into the “Whiskey”

Even if you aren’t crazy about his music, it’s tough to dislike Bryan Adams. The gravel-voiced Canadian rock legend now lives in London, where many locals regard him as a diamond geezer (that’s a good thing). Adams recently kicked off an international tour for Shine a Light, his 14th studio album, which drops today.

During our brief time on the road with a band, we once played a backwoods motel where the owner’s kid spun “Summer of ’69” perpetually on the jukebox. But we won’t hold that against Grammy winner Adams—or his teaming up with human pop chart Ed Sheeran for the new record’s title track.   

Just regular folk

Why no hard feelings? A sterling songwriter and performer, Adams is also a philanthropist and human rights activist; in other words, he’d never try the same dick moves as his creepy near-namesake. And on Shine a Light, he joins a long list of great musicians by laying down the Irish classic “Whiskey in the Jar”. Fits ya good, Bryan.
