Riz Khan talks to Bryan Adams 
With a distinctive voice and catchy lyrics, this rock'n roll icon's music has won him fans around the world. He tours extensively, making time for charity, and has excelled in another art: photography. Riz Khan interviews Canadian based rocker Bryan Adams.

Bryan Adams has a way of connecting with his fans with songs that are pure rock infused with boundless energy. When he sings, the crowd roars.

Despite his Canadian roots, Adams did his growing up around the world as he moved from country to country with his diplomat family. That in part has shaped his view on charity and fundraising, something he has often built into his touring and performing schedule.

Adams also became a staunch advocate in the battle against breast cancer after losing a close friend to the disease. He has even used his significant talents as a photographer to raise money for the cause, including a book featuring portraits of high profile American women.

Bryan Adams continues to tour places other Western rock stars have not even considered and points out that there is still a lot more world out there for him to see.
