Hello and welcome back...Stuart Leslie Goddard aka "Adam Ant" ( not to be confused with Atom Ant ) was once voted sexiest man in America.

Stuart was born in Marylebone London and while attending primary school Stuart was making a name for himself, after he landed a brick through the principle's office, he was placed under the supervision of a teacher by the name of "Joanna Saloman".

This teacher taught him to turn his talents into something better introducing him to the Arts.

While in college Stuart married former student "Carol Mills" and things started to go downhill.
Stuart was battling anorexia and even tried to kill himself, while overdosing on any pills he could find. This was a dark time for Stuart, but after being released from a mental hospital he decided to turn his life around.
At 21 he was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder.

And so, Adam Ant was born.

Adam teamed up with "Marco Pirroni", "Kevin Mooney" and "Chris Hughes"(aka Merrick) to form "the Ants".

Adam and the Ants lasted until 1982 then went separate ways with Adam going solo.

For me Adam ant was in the best part of music scene know as "New Romantic" era, but his music was not heavily synth based as other bands.
He captured my interest with the attention to detail, not only was it his fashion stance with large pirate shirts, face paint and hair twiggy bits but his music videos were often a small movie showing off his acting ability as well as music talent.
My favourite songs from "Adam Ant" are "Antmusic", "Stand and deliver", "Prince Charming", Goody Two Shoes"; "Puss In Boots" and "Strip".







Adam has a new album to be released in July 2012 called ( wait for it ) = Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner's Daughter.

Great to see Adam back doing what he does best. Cheers
