Hello Hello!!

OKAY @ 08:04 am

I'm currently feelin: bouncy bouncy
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Your Blue Room

OKAY here's what we have to do.

In honor of Adam's birthday lets all contribute stuff we've read or seen about our favorite bassist: Adam Clayton!

First a quote from NME, October 14th 2000: To bono: "You're alwasy surrounded by supermodels, home come?" Bono: "Adam. "

At the brit awards once an editor zoomed up to Adam and said something complete idiotic. So with champagne glass aloft in the poshest voice imaginable he said: 'Clear aaaaaawfff!!!!"

The Simpsons:

Adam:"Look guys! I got a Springfield spoon for my spoon collection."
Edge:"Oh, here we go....."
Bono:"How many spoons have you got now, Adam?"
Adam:"Nine. If I didnt have my spoons I'd go insane."
Bono:"Can I see it?"[throws it over his shoulder]
Adam:"My spoon!!!"

and my favorite Adam quote of all time is from the U2 online global q&a:

JO WHILEY: What's the biggest event of your life so far, it's a major question?

ADAM CLAYTON: So far, well, the biggest one I was there for has to be my own birth, at nine months after my conception. So, that's a big one, and I'm still getting over it.


On a personal note I read that Adam's house sits overlooking the school which expelled him; the expulsion letter itself hanging above his toilet! So whenever I get something chastizing me for my misfit behavior (yes I was a problem child) I merely smile, walk into my bathroom, and hang it above my toilet!!!!

My fave. quote is the thing where he says something about music and politics and bullshit. I can't remember the exact quote but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

instantly recalls from memory: "Some people say you shouldn't mix music and politics or sport and politics but I think thats kinda bullshit" -just before Bullet the BLue Sky on Rattle and Humm ;-)

Yep, that's the one! I love that because I agree whole-heartedly.

I know that kid rock was in the news recently saying that "music and politics mix about as well as whiskey and wine."

... haven't all the great bands in the world been political in some respect?

And political music a lot of time causes changes.
