Canadian rocker Bryan Adams got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, and he was joined by another famous Canuck, Wayne Gretzky, for the ceremony.
Adams, who will be in Toronto this Sunday to present at the Junos, received the 2,435th star on the famous sidewalk in Los Angeles.
Gretzky was on hand to support the singer, who sang O Canada before the Great One's final hockey game, adding the line, "We're gonna miss you Wayne Gretzky."
The 51-year-old musician was inducted in Canada's Walk of Fame in 1998 as well as the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2006. He also has a Governor General's Performing Arts Award and is an officer of the Order of Canada.
Adams, who holds 18 Juno awards, said he felt humbled by his new honour.
Born in Kingston, Ont., the singer and songwriter signed his first contract at the age of 18 with A&M Records in Toronto. His debut single Let Me Take You Dancing reached 18th on Canada's RPM dance/urban chart.
Adams recorded the first of his 10 studio albums, Bryan Adams, in 1980.
He had a string of hits during the 1980s including Cuts Like a Knife, This Time, Run to You, Summer of '69, Heaven, Somebody and It's Only Love, a duet with Tina Turner.
Grammy in 1991
He nabbed a Grammy in 1991 for best song written for a motion picture for (Everything I Do) I Do It For You for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves starring Kevin Costner.
He continued topping the charts in the 1990s with singles such as Please Forgive Me, Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? and When You're Gone.
Adams also performed in the opening ceremony for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
In recent years, the London, England-based artist has begun a new career as a portrait photographer, with exhibits around the world and images selling for thousands of dollars, raising money for charity while also working for fashion magazines.
His charitable foundation, The Bryan Adams Foundation, funds a variety of projects from supporting victims of wars and natural disasters to helping those suffering mental or physical abuse.
