Bryan Adams, a Grammy-winning Canadian rock singer known for hits such as "Summer of '69," was recently honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"I remember being in Hollywood here at the age of about 16 and marveling at the stars on the pavement," the 51-year-old said before the star was unveiled on Monday, March 22. "Today I'm humbled by the induction of my name into the pavement. It's fantastic."
I'd like to thank all the bands that I've supported over the years - the Kinks, Journey, Foreigner and the Rolling Stones," Adams added. "Thanks for the break. And of course, more importantly, to the fans."
Adams recently released a new acoustic album, "Bare Bones," and is promoting it with concerts in the United States as well as the Middle East.
The new record includes live versions of some of his biggest hits, including "Summer of '69", "Heaven" and "Everything I do (I Do It For You)". He says that the track listing was compiled with the help of the fans, who named the songs they liked best via Twitter.
Earlier this month, Adams confirmed that he and his personal assistant Alicia Grimaldi are expecting their first child together in May.
