Bryan Adams gets Hollywood star

2011-03-22 13:52
 
Los Angeles - Grammy-winning Canadian singer Bryan Adams was honoured with a star on Hollywood's storied Walk of Fame on Monday - with a little help from fellow countryman and hockey legend Wayne Gretzky.

The pair braved an unseasonal Los Angeles downpour to celebrate the 51-year-old being granted the 2 435th star on the storied walkway of stars along Hollywood Boulevard.

"I remember being in Hollywood at the age of 16 and marvelling at the stars," said Adams, a diplomat's son who has had number one hit records in more than 40 countries.

"The idea of being part of it never entered my mind. It was too far-fetched. Today, I'm humbled at the induction of my name. It's fantastic," he added, sheltering from the rain.

Canadian beginnings

Adams was born in Ontario, but spent much of his youth in England, Israel, Portugal and Austria, following his father's postings.

He hit the big time in 1983 with his third album Cut Like a Knife, while his other hits have included Summer of '69, Run to You, and Let's Make It A Night to Remember.
