I've always been very private: it suits me.')This reticence extends even to his having Amy Winehouse spend recuperative time at his house on Mustique during the Christmas period: 'Let me say something about this whole Amy Winehouse scenario. It was Christmas.'Still, a kind act.'I just thought it would be nice for someone to come and spend time...
I don't even know, truthfully, how anybody knows I know her - other than the fact I photographed her [for charity - Adams does scads of work for charity]. But I don't want to focus on that.'A pity, because 'the Winehouse scenario' seems one more piece of evidence to prove what many say: that Bryan Adams is a thoroughly good egg. Primarily, he's a successful singer-songwriter - upwards of 65 million records sold; a solid-gold back catalogue of songs such as Summer of 69, Straight from the Heart and (Everything I Do) I Do It For You, the song that spent a still-unbroken record of 16 weeks at the top of the UK charts in 1991; music that has been written for or been used in 42 movies; and a very likeable new album, '11'.
And he's helped raise funds for the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, by way of two concerts.
He has a way with people, and instantly you feel relaxed around him - one of the most important things in a photographer is that they connect and make you feel comfortable.' Geordie Greig, who edits Tatler, tells me that 'There's a gentle curiosity to him; he's hungry for experience and for work - and that's attractive.' Alexandra Shulman, who edits Vogue, echoes this: 'He's got a can-do attitude that's very appealing. Yes, I say, occasionally I've tried to persuade her to be less brave - Colvin lost an eye when she was shot in Sri Lanka. And it's a job - which is weird, because I don't think of it as a job.' That's as maybe: Adams still tours 10 days a month.
As far as power delivery, as you all know, the Hellcat is producing just north of 700HP, so we would be shocked if Ford doesn’t take it one step further.
“Our new SVT Halo Mustang will have more HP than the Hellcat” claims a Ford rep from a recent CNN interview. If this new behemoth will be a forced induction car, than we can safely assume that Ford will stick with the traditional lobe crankshaft, or at least depart from the 5.2L GT350 platform.
In the aftermath, Adams and his mother were hard up; the Lions Club once had to pay for their Christmas lunch. 'You know that expression they have up north: "You've got to man up." That's what it is: you've got to man up.
Adams left school at 15 and took menial jobs; he ran briefly with the rude boys - 'no more than anybody else would as teenager' - and once had to be sprung from jail by his mother. And you go, "Right, I've just got to dust myself off and get on with the job."' That involved fronting the band he'd been playing with: 'We put ads in papers, all kind of things, trying to find a singer, and no one pitched up. There was, too, air mile after air mile of touring on the way to selling those mountains of records.
