Check out Adam Clayton’s interview on St. Patrick’s University’s pop-up station: Walk in My Shoes Radio. Adam appears around the 1:08:50 mark in the 2 hour radio show and talks for about 10 minutes. The radio station in Dublin will only be in existence until this Friday, the 14th!
Clayton discussed his passion for running (as opposed to using treadmills), as well as his thoughts on mental wellness and his history with substances:
“There is nothing that I miss about drugs and alcohol that a sober life hasn’t given me ten fold. I love my life now.”
Regarding new album plans, Adam dropped a few hints at what is happening in the studio. He said:
“We’ve been working on a record and we’ve been humming and hawing on whether it’s finished or not. We’ve decided it’s not finished — we’re going to work up until Christmas. I wish we were a little bit more definite about our scheduling because people have been expecting it. But it’ll be out next year — maybe March/April. That’s the plan, but I’m not confirming it.”
Adam was also no fan of Donald Trump when he said:
“He seems to be a very strange man.”
