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."

Watch these 2 short video clips of Adam talking with Mr. McDermott on RTÉ's 2FM with regard to the Walk in My Shoes charity in helping to raise mental health awareness in children at St. Patrick University Hospital in Dublin, Ireland.

Adam Clayton on Donald Trump:

Bono blasts Republican nominee for trying to "run off with the American dream"

By Jon Blistein, Rolling Stone

U2 mocked Donald Trump and his proposed border wall before performing "Bullet the Blue Sky" at a concert in San Francisco on Wednesday.

The new bit called "Liberty..." found Bono condescending to clips of the Republican nominee touting his vast wealth and plans to build a great wall on the Mexican border. "Now candidate, you understand it's not just Mexican people who are going to have a problem with this wall of yours," Bono said. "It's everyone who loves the idea of America."
