For years Ryan Adams expressed disdain towards anyone who requested a “Bryan Adams” song. But that changed this past Wedneday night in Santa Barbara, Calif. when Ryan channeled his inner “Bryan” on an inspired cover of “Run to You”. Watch it after the jump.
Ryan Adams once said that Bryan Adams “is not a serious artist” and his songs have “‘implied target market audience’ written all over them,” and that “he is quite embarrassing in general” but now Ryan Adams cites Bryan Adams as as an early influence, telling The Globe and Mail”
Bryan Adams was a totally huge part of everything that I am musically. The beginnings of MTV had everything to do with me as a kid. I was transformed by that. I challenge anyone to put on ‘Run To You’ and let that wash over you in a pair of headphones, in your normal listening zone. That stuff is fire-hot.
By the way, Bryan Adams plays at the Tower Theater, in Upper Darby, PA on October 23rd.
