OTTAWA — Outed for his rock 'n' roll prowess on the keys during an Ottawa gala last fall where he dazzled a glitzy crowd with a Beatles number, Canada's typically stiff prime minister admits he's since been jamming with the likes of Bryan Adams.


The Canadian pop icon visited 24 Sussex Drive while in Ottawa to receive his Governor General's lifetime achievement award earlier this month.

During a town-hall meeting with a group of students this week on Parliament Hill, Harper spoke of the visit as one of the perks that comes with being Canada's top politician.

"As some of you know, I play a little bit in my spare time in a band and had the opportunity to have Bryan Adams come over and play with me," he said when asked what the best part about being prime minister was.

"I don't think that would have happened if I wasn't prime minister."

The economist-turned-politician has often used his piano skills and love of rock 'n' roll as a means of softening his image.

Over the years, he's made impromptu performances in public and last October surprised about 600 people at a National Arts Centre fundraiser with his rendition of With a Little Help from My Friends
