| Adrian Belew|
|Occupation||Springfield Elementary Student|
|First Appearance||"Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire"|
Adrian shares the same name as an American rock musician best known for his work with Frank Zappa and King Crimson. The real-life Adrian Belew, however, was born Robert Steven Belew and went by the nickname Steve before becoming a professional musician. The musical connection may be the reason why the Adrian Belew in Bart's class wrote the names "John Coltrane", "Miles Davis" and "Thelonious Monk" (all famous jazz musicians) on his test paper.
After Bart lost to Martin Prince in the student election, Adrian, carrying a camera and getting ready to take his picture, says, "Over here, Mr. President." He then clicks the shutter and takes his pic. It would be featured on the front page of the school newspaper. Adrian was seen at the Le Petite Appetit with the Girl with pigtails, which implies that the two were dating during the events of the episode, "The Daughter Also Rises". It's possible the girl with pigtails is likely his girlfriend.
Note: Many of his appearances are brief, background roles. Episodes in which he has an actual role are in bold.
