The national treasure, who rose to fame as lead singer of post-punk group Adam and the Ants in the early '80s, before embarking on a hit solo career, earned ten UK top ten hits, including three number ones, and became a figurehead for the New Romantic movement in the UK.
Ant is one of the few British artists to replicate his success on the other side of the Atlantic, with a string of best-selling albums and an ever-swelling fan base in America, where he was nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy and enjoyed three top 20 hits on the Billboard Top 100.. "Antmania" swept the nation, with Stand and Deliver hitting the number one spot for five weeks and winning Ant an Ivor Novello. His album Kings of the Wild Frontier earned him a Best British Album BRIT Award while "Prince Charming" rocketed straight to number one and a further 12 singles made the top 30. In 2008 he followed in Sir Paul McCartney's footsteps by being presented with the Q Music Icon Award.
After overcoming a well-documented battle with bi-polar disorder, the London legend has finally bounced back with the eagerly-awaited album Adam Ant Is the Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunner's Daughter.
