Bryan Adams Commends Ryan Adams for his Cover of ‘Summer of ‘69’


Ryan Adam recently covered one of Bryan Adams most famous songs and the ‘Summer of ‘69’ singer says he is ‘happy’ about it.

After being heckled at a show to sing Bryan Adam’s ‘Summer of ‘69’ thirteen years ago, Ryan Adams finally gave in and carried out the request thirteen years later during a concert at the Ryman.

Bryan Adams has recently spoken about the cover saying “Ryan wrote to me to tell me the day before that he was going to do it. I think it was some sort cathartic release for him to return to that venue and play that, as you probably know the story there. So I think in some ways, he has been haunted by the song somewhat, which is a shame because it’s a really great song. Anyway, I’m happy he did it. He’s a great artist. And sure I’d sing one of his songs. I’m not sure which one, though.”

Ryan Adams had previously told Spin how much hecklers got to him; “They come to my shows just to provoke me. I had to go into therapy because of the whole Byran Adams ‘Summer of ‘69’ thing.”

The two singers have become friends over the past year with Ryan Adams wishing Bryan a happy birthday last winter via twitter saying “@bryanadams I will be toasting you from a secret Pinball Lair with California’s most wondrous greenery!”
