Bryan Adams, the Canadian singer and guitarist, recently discussed his early career, his demanding touring schedule, and missing out on the excitement of being number one in the UK.

Furthermore, Bryan said to The Independent: “I was on tour. People were always saying, ‘You’re Number One in England,’ but I wasn’t around to witness it. I was playing gigs, non-stop. I was on tour, literally, for four years. So the way it changed was suddenly, I was playing a lot more places, to much bigger crowds. And for a lot longer tours. I don’t suppose I ever really got to enjoy the surreal aspect of being No1 for four months. I was only told about it.”
