    Adam Ant


    Adam was once the leader of the Ants, then broke away to become Adam Ant , the only Ant! Adam launched his solo career in 1982 taking with him the primary songwriter from Adam and the Ants. He released his first solo album “Friend or Foe” in 1982, which has gone on to be his most popular release.

    Adam Ant has a style all his own. He is very diverse; from 50’s inspired tunes , pop flavored tunes, glam style tunes, parody tunes, punk rock tunes, to contemporary dance music. Adam is also quite an accomplished actor with a long acting resume. Also as a notch in his belt, he was once voted by MTV as the “Sexiest Man in America”.

    More recently, Adam has begun working again and launched a tour which began in 2010--The Good, The Mad, and The Lovely. Recent photos of Adam has him looking strikingly like an older Johnny Depp:

    ^^That song was a big hit. Adam Ant is an acquired taste, and very eclectic.

    Adam is bloody adorable!!

    I know someone who has seen him live, a number of times.

    I rather fancy the harder-driving stuff from Dirk Wears White Sox. Been meaning to pick the LP up for a while now. "Day I Met God" is classic.

    Re: Adam Ant

    Yes it is, I noticed that I kind of have to ease myself into liking him, probably because of his various influences.. some of the influences I don't really like, but as long as I'm in the mood for somethign a little different, I can get into his finished product of a song:grinthumb

    Re: Adam Ant

    I always liked these two





    I heard on the radio this week that he's touring for the first time in fifteen years. I hope he's come through his dark times now, it was sad hearing about him hitting rock bottom because of mental health problems.
