Adam Clayton Interview

There's a good interview with Adam Clayton in this week's Hot Press. He talks about U2's new album-in-progress (working with Dangermouse), his problems with lack of self confidence and addiction, his son and his work with the mental health charity for young people, Walk in my Shoes. The interview is very open and candid, and the great news according to the reporter is, quote - The last time we spotted Mr. C at Christmas, he had a near Afro, but today the hair is almost back to regulation U2 bassist length. Phew!!

  1. Very candid interview. Adam is definitely the most easily likeable U2 member. He's not as brilliant as Edge nor as sparkling as Bono but just a calm, quiet, thoughtful, humble person who shines from within. Concernig the new U2 album I liked this sentence most: "We could make three or four different records and justify that to ourselves, but to make the best record you can, you have to steer away from the ones you can make easily. We’re really trying to get into territory that we’re not comfortable in." From Adam's mouth this is great to hear.

  2. You put that very well Andy, Adam is all those things. I always take notice of what he says as he doesn't bullshit, so the signs are good!
