When the Canadian Band Sweeney Todd picked up their Juno for the song “Roxy Roller” the lead singer Nick Gilder did not accompany them. He had already left the band and moved to LA to go solo. In his place was new band member a 15 year old guitarist named Bryan Adams.
A Canadian in LA gilder was shocked at the amount of very young women in the sex trade and penned this #1 hit. Although his only hit as a solo artist he would go on to write hit songs for other artists including Bette Midler, Joe Cocker and Pat Benatar.
