Stuart Leslie Goddard, better known as Adam Ant, is an English singer and musician.

He has also worked as an actor, appearing in over two dozen films and television episodes from 1985 to 2003.
Born in Marylebone, London, Ant began his musical career playing bass in the band Bazooka Joe. From 1977 to 1982 he performed with Adam and the Ants and their debut album Dirk Wears White Sox (1979).
Prior to recording his second album as Adam and the Ants, he asked producer Malcolm McLaren to manage his band, who instead took his backing band to form Bow Wow Wow. Ant regrouped with new members, including Marco Pirroni to release his second album Kings of the Wild Frontier (1980).
He released his third and final album with the group, Prince Charming (1981).
In 1982, he disbanded his group for a solo career retaining only Marco Pirroni as a bandmember and co-songwriter for later solo albums. His first solo album was Friend or Foe (1982), which the debut single “Goody Two Shoes” reached number one in the UK and Australia in 1982 and became his first top 20 hit in the United States.
Greatest hits: “Dog Eat Dog”, “Ant Music”, “Kings Of The Wild Frontier”, “Stand And Deliver”, “Prince Charming”, “Ant Rap”, “Goody Two Shoes”, “Puss ‘N Boots”, “Apollo 9” and “Room At The Top”.
