Bryan Adams revisits breakthrough album 30 years on
Time Stands Still
At least it has for Bryan Adams – a sprightly and svelte 55 years old this month – and the indomitable Reckless album. Thirty years later and not much has changed for a record that defined Adams and his career for ever after. The Reckless shows promised much; the original album in its entirety plus a cherry picked best of Bryan set. As the happy Adams concedes at one point with a grin and a shrug, “That’s the end of the Reckless portion of the show, but, hey, I’ve got thirteen albums.”
