Adams, Bryan | An internationally famous musician who most Vancouverites believe was born and raised here even though he came to us from Ontario as a teenager. During his meteoric rise to music stardom in the 1980s, he was a point of local pride. Not to be confused with the local pickle company, Brine Adams.
