Adamsception: Watch Ryan Adams Cover Bryan Adams

For a long time, Ryan Adams was not amused by the similarity between his name and that of Canadian rocker Bryan Adams. In 2002, he had a fan thrown out of a venue for yelling a request for "Summer of '69," and he told Spin in 2006 that he had to go "into therapy" because of Bryan Adams-related heckling at his shows.

But it seems like he's made peace with it now. Adams told The Globe and Mail recently that "Bryan Adams was a totally huge part of everything that I am musically," adding that he "challenges anyone to put on 'Run to You' and let that wash over you in a pair of headphones," going on to describe the song as "fire-hot."

With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that Adams covered that very same song during a recent appearance in Santa Barbara, California. Understandably, we're all very happy about it.
