By the time he returned to the studio after almost two years of touring behind the remarkable success of 1984's Reckless, Bryan Adams' once fruitful collaboration with producer Jim Vallance had obviously staled. Most of the duo's songs for 1987's Into the Fire were lifeless and dull, and the album yielded only one successful single in "Heat of the Night." The arena rock of "Hearts on Fire" injects it with at least a little spark, but things quickly get ugly with the depressing title track and the truly awful "Only the Strong Survive." Not surprisingly, the album was Adams' last with Vallance, and his new partnership with producer John "Mutt" Lange (Def Leppard, AC/DC) would lead to his greatest success yet. Biography: Bryan Adams biography by Steven Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide
Bryan Adams negotiated the shifting tides of the '80s so well that it never seemed as if he were changing to fit the times. A veteran of the '70s studio arena rock game, Adams struck out on his own in the early '80s, turning into a star in his native Canada and making headway with his 1983 album, Cuts Like a Knife. All of this was a prelude to Reckless, the 1984 album that turned him into an international superstar, selling by the truckloads in North America, Europe, and Asia thanks to the hits "Run to You," "Heaven," and "Summer of '69." From that point on, Adams was the most unassuming of rock stars, riding high on the charts and selling out arenas, even breaking Billboard records with his power ballad "Everything I Do (I Do It for You)," but never quite dominating the public imagination (or earning the critical respect) as such peers as Bruce Springsteen or John Mellencamp. Nevertheless, Adams remained a formidable presence on the American charts into the mid-'90s, and while the popularity of his new records started to slip after that, he retained his audience in Canada and the U.K. and his '80s hits remained radio staples as he began a career as a photographer. The son of an English diplomat, Bryan Adams was born in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, in 1959 and spent much of his childhood traveling Europe. His family set down roots in North Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1973, around which time he began seriously pursuing music, quickly getting into the thick of Vancouver's scene. Adams quit school and wound up replacing Nick Gilder's replacement in the glam rock band Sweeney Todd, singing lead on the band's second album, If Wishes Were Horses..., when he was just 15. Not long after its 1977 release, Adams left the group and began his long, fruitful collaboration with Jim Vallance, then currently the drumm...
