Aging and Adam Ant

Back in '83- I was a HUGE fan of Adam Ant.. I even went to a concert... I was IN LOVE with him... What a babe...



So, here is Adam then and now... He's 54, mind you and has had a tough time, but he's ready to make a come back! Paris????

I was a huge Adam Ant fan too Leesa and have followed his return to gigging this year in the UK with interest. Last I heard though he had been sectioned again under the Mental Health Act :-(. But I'll say this, if he ever does come to Paris, I'll be right there with you :)

Oh my! I thought he was soooo hot & sexy back in the day. Hard livin' certainly does a number on people.

His eyes are so expressive. I remember him! But I was more of a Duran Duran fan back then...

I know, Penny... I saw that about the mental health thing.. I wonder what was going on in his life.. I think he threatened someone at a bar with a gun.. I have to check again.. Poor guy.. Not looking so hot now.. Looks like he has had some plastic surgery... I'd go see him, too.. If he still sings welll! Not really the same "sex symbol" as in his younger years, though!!


Cheryl... I also liked Duran Duran.. AND flock of Seagulls...

Hola Antonio..

Yep... the 80s were exceptional for music.. Well, I guess ALL eras are.. But I can really remember the 80s well.. Take care and have a great weekend!

Piglet in France.. Very cool.. Keep saving it... It's great to have memorabilia like that, isn't it?!!

Lisa-- YOu and me, both.. He was soooo hot.. Just like Mickey Rourke ws sooo HOT.. You're ABSOLUTELY right about hard living .. It's a real shame!!!
Have a great weekend!

I have to show this to my friend who was a HUGE Adam Ant fan. Wow.

And I can't even talk about how Mickey Rourke USED to look without getting all choked up.

Chrissy...

Mickey Rourke.. He was a real looker in his day! Too bad about the blotched job!!!

Adam was in Paris in Feb, was in a very small bar called the Pure Malt, a Scottish bar in Paris. Played guitar and sung some interesting stuff, a real character, very unique. The place is tiny, could only fit about 20 people in, but we had a fantastic night. I got some pics with him, if you youtube 'Adam Ant france' you will find a clip someone took, not the best sound quality, but you will see he still has the majic.
