Rock legend Bryan Adams has revealed he is grateful for his stash of hit songs because they stop him from becoming "boring"
Bryan Adams says he would be "boring" without his catalogue of big hits.
The 56-year-old rock legend is still in "love" with his fan-favourite tracks, despite having released new material in recent years, and is relieved songs like 'Everything I Do, I Do It For You' and 'Summer of 69' are still in demand because he believes they keep gigging.
Asked whether he enjoys playing the old hits, the heartthrob said: "I love it. I love it. But in fact, when you do play live what happens is people sing the song back to you and it becomes a new thing. It's not like singing the same song, because everyone is singing with you. I think you are obliged as a performer to give them that, and to go out and do that show because actually if I didn't have those songs, I would be boring."
Meanwhile, Adams is happily settled in the UK with his long term partner Alicia Grimaldi - with whom he has two young daughters, Bunny, four, and two-year-old Lula Rosylea -
and revealed his kids are just beginning to realise what he does for a living.
In an interview on UK chat show 'Loose Women', he said: "My eldest daughter came home one day and said, 'Oh papa, someone at school said you are a very good singer.' That's the first time she's ever said something like that."
