Adam Ant (born Stuart Leslie Goddard, 3 November 1954, Marylebone, London) is an English musician who gained popularity as the lead singer of New Wave/post-punk group Adam and the Ants and later as a solo artist, scoring ten UK top ten hits between 1980 and 1983, including three No.1s. Ant was also a star in America where he not only scored a string of hit singles and albums, but was once voted sexiest man in America by the viewers of MTV. He is also an actor, having appeared in over two dozen films or television episodes between 1985 and 2003.
Since 2010, Ant has undertaken an intensive reactivation of his musical career, performing live regularly in his hometown London and beyond, recording a new album and with two full-length UK national tours, a US national tour and a short Australian tour all now completed and a third such UK tour now underway. His present comeback continues and thrives though reports of a new album state it may be another symptom of the mental health issues which were considered largely responsible for his lengthy spell of near-inactivity spanning the late 1990s and 2000s.
