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.

It's something of a cosmic joke that Nov. 5 is the shared birth date of Ryan "Don't Call Me Bryan" Adams and Bryan "Canadian" Adams. We'd like to wish them both a happy birthday, except we're getting a little confused. That's why we created this trusty cheat sheet to help ourselves – and you – keep these guys straight.

Bryan Adams is in heaven.
The rocker-photographer and co-founder of his foundation, Alicia Grimaldi, welcomed a daughter last month, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
"I'm really proud to announce on 22 April, Mirabella Bunny was born," says Adams, 51.
"She arrived like all good Easter bunnies on Easter Friday," Adams added. "Mother and baby are both well and happy. Thanks in advance for your kind thoughts and wishes."

The 2010 Winter Olympics may be lacking snow, but that hasn't stopped the leaks.
The first names of likely opening-ceremony performers have filtered out, thanks to spies at the rehearsals and a commercial for the Vancouver Games that aired during Saturday Night Live.
Canadians Nelly Furtado, Sarah McLachlan and Bryan Adams all seem a lock for Friday night. Best bets are also rockers Rush and jazz singer Nikki Yanofsky, also both Canadians. The '80s band Devo will be among the bands performing at the Games' medal ceremonies.
So far no word on Shania Twain, the overwhelming first pick of 62 percent of readers in a PEOPLE poll, nor for other Canadian poll faves Avril Lavigne (24 percent) or Celine Dion (7 percent). Furtado got 2 percent in the poll.

Is there romance in the air for Canadian rocker/photographer Bryan Adams and Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson?
Reports in the British papers have linked the couple in recent days, suggesting Macpherson got flirtatious with Adams at a private party at his London home on Tuesday, following the opening of his latest photography exhibit.
"Elle and Bryan are great friends. That's all I know," Adams's rep tells PEOPLE.
Macpherson, 44, split with longtime partner Arpad Busson, with whom she has two sons, in 2005. Adams, 48, has never married or had children.

Everything he does, he does it for charity: Rocker Bryan Adams (he of "Summer of '69" and "Cuts Like a Knife") is now thriving in his second career as a photographer – and he shot this pic of Amy Winehouse for Hear the World, a nonprofit aiming to raise awareness about hearing impairment. (Adams also shot Joss Stone, Common and other celebs – all cupping their ears.)
