    Adam turns 60 on this Friday, the 13th of March. We want to celebrate him here in the Zoo in grand fashion. Please help us in wishing him the very best of birthdays in this thread with your own messages, your favourite photos and stories and your favourite bass lines. My wish for him is that he has the very best birthday filled with happiness and love.

    Happy birthday to the poshest, coolest, the best kimono wearer of the band, Mr. Awesome Clayton ! (that'd be you Adam. Just in case) 60. That deserves a few words. Or maybe just one... Thanks. Thanks for always having a kind word for us fans even if that means showing up late after show in your bathrobe / kimono (Note : it's only cool when YOU do it. Talking from experience) Thanks for the #Pinkadam love (and all the times I lost it out of utter joy when we could see it peaking behind your bass). Thanks for trying every single time to read our signs at the rail, even the silly ones (that's mostly mines). Thanks for being so open and honest about mental health issues and thus such a source of inspiration for the rest of us still struggling. And I really mean that. A lot. Thanks for letting me believe I can actually play bass (and realize 2 minutes in I'm way off beat but eh.. Details.) Thanks for shining like a pink sparkly bass and let us into that light after all these years. Thanks for the smiles that warm our heart and the winks that feel like suspended eternity for a second. Thanks for the joy, the thrill and that whole roller-coaster of emotions we experience thanks to your music (and your bass lines. Obviously.) And also thanks for not swaying too hard on stage... For obvious reasons Bono's stated last tour. Lastly, I'm sorry but couldn't wrap that post with a nice wrapping paper you'd like but be sure that it's wrapped with all the love and gratitude I have for you and those 3 other lads who bring me so much joy. Happy birthday Adam. You rock. Stay awesome. Much love and take care x

    Welcome guys to this new thread that will hopefully be filled with laughter and conversations and will turn into a nice chapter of the zootopians resilience. ✌️ Ghost towns are emerging all over the world because of that nasty virus and the very necessary lock in. Every day it just gets a bit more scarier. Anxiety is rising up for everyone. I was walking the aisles of my local supermarket the other day and all I could see was empty shelves. No toilet paper, no canned tuna, not the one veggie that my kids actually want to eat. That’s depressing. The fear in people's eyes and distancing is depressing. Where is the world heading ? And then there was a sound.. That PA blaring music. And guess what ? It was a U2 song. That’s when I realized that there’s one thing we will never lack of, and that’s music. Music that lifts us up and brings us together at all times. The good and the bad. After the subscriber special streaming of #U2Berlin4k,the worst thing happened. Silence. We just had two hours of fun, joy and friendship. Two hours that allowed our minds to wander back to better days and take that much needed break from reality. And in that silence I could only hear my own thoughts resonating “ We need that. We need that light.” And that’s how the first spark started. As it often is, an idea led to another one, to another person, and then another and that’s when I saw we were all on the same page. As I was saying on my post yesterday, we have all the means necessary to keep the party going. We’re stuck home with a bunch of DVDs and a whole world of friends at our fingertips. The #U2Fam knows all about social distancing already. U2 has been building bridges across the world and our hearts for over 40 years so yes we know how that works to be away from our friends. But we also know how much stronger that bond gets then. From Saturday 28th, we’ll be throwing watch along parties every week at 9GMT until we’re all out and safe - or run out of DVDs. Everybody’s welcome to join and participate. And here’s how we gonna do it : We’ll have a poll open here on the Zoo and on twitter for a whole week so YOU can choose which live shows you’d like to watch - People have the power ! Every Saturday, put on your DVD and press play at exactly 9PM GMT so we’re all in synch (Note : It won’t be streaming from the site or else, it will be your own material) Chat along here on the zoo or on twitter using the #U2getherAtHome hashtag. Grab a fresh beer or two and install a mirror ball (optional) Enjoy. Have fun. Forget about the outside world for a minute because I promise that there won’t be silence on my watch. HA ! (Pro tip : let the kids stay up to recreate a live show atmosphere - them running and bouncing in front of the TV should do the trick.) Bono recently said to sing as an act of resistance. Well. He usually gives us pretty good advice doesn’t he ? I hope to see you around. I need it. We need it. Resist and stay safe. What time is it in the world ? (I’m not even sure what day it is to be honest....) One thing for certain when U2 is involved…. it’s always PARTY TIME !

    Adam was right in front of me for a large majority of 4 of the 5 e&i shows I saw. This picture w/ Bono was my favorite of all the ones I have of him (July 1st, 2018 - MSG #3, for anyone who may be curious about which show the picture is from). The only bass player U2 could ever have, both in sound and in look - he’s perfect in both. Putting the “sexy” in sexagenarian. Happy birthday, Adam!

    I am not good with words, English isn't my first language, anyway... This is a photo I took with my old camera almost 10 years ago (ouch!) in Zurich, during the second night. A very very rainy night. I was at the barrier, in front row, Adam's side. It was the coolest gig of my life! Loving your fashion style, Happy Birthday, Lord Clayton!

    Happy Birthday to the man I named my eldest son after. My wife wouldn’t let me add the Clayton though.

    No pics of Adam because I do not take pics at shows. I almost always end up right by Adam for U2 shows. He's always looked so chill onstage. Vertigo was when I first noticed the grin he gets when he's looked over at us in Chicago. I have no idea what he was thinking. Part of it feels like, 'You guys are nuts.', I don't know. Happy Birthday, Adam Clayton.

    Happy Birthday, Mr. Clayton! Two of my arsenal are your signature models because they have the best-playing necks I've found, and each a unique sound. Here's to many more great grooves!

    Hello from France :) Hope your are all doing well and safe home. Here is a glimpse of my first U2 show, was 19 and was living near the arena. Funny fact, my parents were at home, at about 3 or 4 km from the venue, and they could hear the whole show ;) Stay safe all :)

    Happy Birthday, Adam! I haven’t yet gotten the chance to meet you, so this is the best picture I have from my first U2 concert in June 2018 in DC. I put Pink Adam on the back of my guitar in your honor, and thanks for your strong, throbbing bass lines, especially in “New Year’s Day.”

    I've been painting Adam for atu2.com since 2002. Here are some vintage-looking trading cards I made of some of my best work. My absolute favorite is a small watercolor of Adam in his yellow Buzzcocks shirt. 😊

    I have a number of Adam photos but this is one of my favorites. I had the honor of meeting him & even though I failed to speak actual words it meant a lot to me. Thank you for being an awesome human being and a sweetheart to your fans 💖 Happy birthday Adam!

    Happy birthday to a fellow March baby, and by far my all-time favorite band member. Safe to say you are responsible for this crazy obsession that started so many years ago. Cheers to your 60s and more!

    A piece of advice: it's probably not the best idea to discuss and plan how to download, burn, and distribute the stream of a band show on the official site of said band.

    I have saved an old article and a ticket of course, Popmart (Helsinki). It was my first stadium concert, jaw of a countryboy just dropped..

    I do. Some pages are prettier than others, but I have a page for every show AND the first movie ticket stub and paper adverts for Rattle and Hum. The Galleria 10 is where I worked. I have no idea how many times I actually watched it while it was there, but it was a lot.

    The best moment of my life! Me and Adam have a small chat outside Palau Sant Jordi on 06/10/15. He signs our membership card (I am the founder of U2 Fan Club Desire / Hellas) and promises to visit Greece again, at last. Hey mods, if you see our sweet Adam, please tell him a promise is a promise and we are still waiting..Cheers from Greece..!

    Milan, October 14th, 6:44 PM. A black car parks on the side of the street and... Guess who gets out? Adam Clayton!!!!! In flesh and blood!!! He walks towards me and my friend and gives us a huge hug that we'll never forget for the rest of our lives. Can you imagine? Mr. Adam Clayton asking you, "Did you enjoy the show, last friday?" He was so kind and sweet!! He even gave us 3 packages of colorful candies, that we have saved as a memento!! I had a really great time in Milan during the U2's concert, in October 2018, but Adam's hug is the most special memory I have. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ADAM!!! Thank you for your incredible kindness!!! P.S. Speaking of Milan, as an Italian, I'd like to say: Hold on, Italy! To defeat coronavirus we must be one and the same!!
