- Fandom-Enraging Misconception:
- Do not confuse him with Bryan Adams. This has especially become a problem since Bryan Adams' reputation has only gotten worse over the past few years before reversing in 2019 in light of the MeToo allegations.
- Don't say that Tim McGraw or Bono wrote "When the Stars Go Blue".
YMMV / Ryan Adams
