Brian Adams to the magazine Blitz:
"Vivia em Birre [perto de Cascais]. Era do melhor", recorda.
"Naquela altura, a Praia do Guincho não tinha nada, mas mesmo nada! Só um restaurante, julgo. O resto eram pinhais. Havia dias em que nem conseguias encontrar a estrada, porque estava tanto vento que levantava-se muita areia (...). Sinceramente, não consegues imaginar como era bonito".
