Adam Clayton is one of the most widely remembered bass guitarists in international music. Unlike most kids of his age, Clayton was quite rebellious since childhood; he disliked academic pressure at school, and wanted to see himself play music on stage. Adam who is currently the lead bassist of the popular music band U2, has earlier been a part of bands like ‘Bono’. Though Adam was considered to be a bad player of the guitar, members of the band ‘Bono’ agree that it was this inability which made the band’s music popular. Apparently, Clayton’s alleged inability produced weird sounds on the bass which made the band’s music seem exotic, as compared to many others in the music scene. Clayton has been associated with U2 since an era where the band was known as ‘Feedback’. He also served as the band’s first manager, before being succeeded by Paul McGuiness. Amongst all his works, the songs ‘New Year’s Day’, ‘With or Without You’, and ‘Bullet the Blue Sky’, are few of Clayton’s most acclaimed ones.
