Adams: Ryan and Bryan

Saturday, 18 October, 2014

One was born in Kingston, Ontario; the other in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Both share the name Adams, but the Canadian is Bryan and the American is Ryan. Each is a rock musician, but their styles are very different, as their fans/critics keep pointing out. In fact, Ryan Adams famously ejected a customer from a concert more than a decade ago for jokingly requesting Summer of ’69. And that was not just then. Ryan played Milwaukee’s Riverside Theater on Tuesday night and, according to the Journal Sentinel, “when some clown made a Bryan Adams reference — inside which was a callback to a 2002 incident that saw Adams giving money and marching orders to another clown making another such reference — he took several minutes to shrug it off verbally.” Here, however, Ryan embraces Bryan, musically, that is.
