The Clayton family became friends with the Evans family including their son David Evans "The Edge"who would later co-found the band U2 with Clayton. Not being sports-oriented, Adam did not enjoy the school or respond well to its ethos; he found it difficult to settle socially there.
He was interested in pop music, which students were not allowed to listen to. He joined the School's "Gramphone Society", which met to listen to classical music. He also took piano lessons for a short time. His introduction to the world of popular music was around the age of 10, listening to rock operas such as Jesus Christ Superstar and Hairand other material that was midway between classical and popular music.
Columba's, persuaded him to join in with a school band where Clayton would play the bass guitar for the first time. In SeptemberMullen put an advert onto the school's bulletin board seeking other musicians to form a band; Clayton showed up for the first meeting and practice, so did the Edge with his older brother Richard Evans "Dik"Bono, and Ivan McCormick and Peter Martin who were two of Mullen's friends. McCormick and Martin left the band soon after its inception.
Bono, The Edge, and Mullen had joined a Christian group, and were questioning the compatibility of rock music with their spirituality. Inafter the Zoo TV Tour and Zooropa album, Clayton headed to New York with bandmate Mullen to receive formal training in the bass; until then Clayton had been entirely self-taught. That album features one of the few instances where Clayton has appeared as a vocalist; he spoke the last verse of " Your Blue Room ", the album's second single.
Since the PopMart TourClayton has not sung live in any capacity for the band. Clayton's style of bass guitar playing is noted for what instructor Patrick Pfeiffer called "harmonic syncopation ". With this technique, Clayton plays a consistent rhythm that stresses the eighth note of each barbut he "anticipates the harmony by shifting the tonality " before the guitar chords do.
This gives the music a feeling of "forward motion". When Clayton first joined the fledgling U2, he did not have formal training in the bass. He came round and started using words like 'action' and 'fret' and he had us baffled.
He had the only amplifier, so we never argued with him. We thought this guy must be a musician; he knows what he's talking about. And then one day, we discovered he wasn't playing the right notes.
That's what's wrong, y'know? He also spoke the last verse of " Your Blue Room ". Clayton can be heard speaking on "Tomorrow '96 Version " a rerecording of " Tomorrow " that he arranged a song from U2's album October.
Claytons first bass was a walnut brown Ibanez Musicianwhich he played heavily from the recording of Boy and well though the War era. Two years later, at the age of 16, Clayton asked his father to purchase a second-hand Precision for him when Brian Clayton travelled to New York, as he felt he needed a better guitar to master the instrument.
For the rest of his career, he was mainly known for using various Fender Precision and Jazz basses. Clayton's Precision basses have been modified with a Fender Jazz neck. In an interview with Bass Player magazine, he said that he prefers the Jazz bass neck because it is more "lady-like" and is a better fit in his left hand. For amplification Clayton started out on Ashdown amplifiers, and later switched to using Aguilar amplifiers.
Clayton has worked on several side projects throughout his career. He played along with the other members of U2 on Robbie Robertson 's self-titled album fromand has also performed with Maria McKee.
Clayton made the news in August when he was arrested in Dublin for carrying a small amount of marijuana.
However, he avoided conviction by making a large donation to charity, and later commented: "it was my own fault. But it is serious because it is illegal. On 26 November he was so hung over that he was unable to play that night's show in Sydney, the dress rehearsal for their Zoo TV concert film.
Bass duties had to be fulfilled by Clayton's technician Stuart Morgan. After that incident, he resolved to give up alcohol,  eventually beginning his sobriety in Clayton remained a bachelor for several decades until his marriage in During the early s, he dated English supermodel Naomi Campbell.
He also had a long-standing relationship with Suzanne "Susie" Smith, a former assistant to Paul McGuinness; they were engaged inbut the pair broke up in February Inhe confirmed that he was no longer in that relationship. On 25 JulyClayton and his wife announced the arrival of their daughter, Alba.

It just sounded good to me. Deep and fat and satisfying. I don't really like that kind of intensity, I don't like that sort of activity, so whilst I was able to go along with it, I wasn't really in control, it would be fair to say. Every night was a party, but I don't think I felt much contentment or peace, that's for sure.
I'd be fine during the day, I'd be fine for the gig but afterwards it was too easy to go out all night or just keep drinking in your room. I was beginning to realize that every time I drank, I couldn't really be sure of the result.
And it always made the next day worse. So I decided to lay off and stop drinking during the final leg of the tour. Main article: List of U2 awards. Archived from the original on 15 September Retrieved 6 September Rolling Stone.
