"Clayton was an incredible rebel, in the true sense of the word. He would come into class with a flash of coffee and put it up on his desk and start to drink. The people would blow their heads."
- Bono on getting to know Adam in the early days

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
