Adam Ant

Ridicule Is Nothing To Be Scared Of

I recently fulfilled a childhood ambition to see Adam Ant in concert. I remember buying my first ever single ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ by Adam and the Ants and it was a huge (admittedly nostalgic) rush to see him after all this time. However it also made me think about why he was still playing music after all this time.

Like everybody, he has had personal and professional ups and downs over the years and some have been quite extreme, however he keeps coming back to music. Seeing him on stage, it was still clearly his absolute passion. Some may perhaps cynically say he’s in it for the money, however, those at the gig were undoubtedly still big fans and like Adam, were chasing their passion for the songs (and perhaps the memories) they loved. Either way, in their own way Adam Ant (and his fans) are still doing just that, as passionately as ever.
