The Truth About the Summer of '69


Recommended Posts

Bryan Adams reveals the truth about the Summer of 69.

MILLER: As long as we are on the subject of Summer of 69, just how autobiographical is the song?

ADAMS: Some parts are autobiographical, but the title comes from the idea of 69 as a metaphor for sex. Most people thought it was about the year 1969.

MILLER: Did you really get your first real six-string at the five and dime? Or did "dime" just rhyme with "nine?"

ADAMS: An excellent rhyme, but also a tad of truth in there. I did buy (my) second electric guitar from a pawn shop.
