Nice interview with Adam, who is being honored at this event: U2’s Adam Clayton Talks ‘Joshua Tree,’ MusiCares Honor, Next Album | Variety

Covers the tour, SOE, and his experience getting and staying sober.

Nice article with Adam. It's interesting in that he says he's been sober for 19 years...that would be about 1998. I was under the impression that he got clean sometime after he missed the show in Sydney in 1993 due to a massive hangover. So i just assumed he got sober in 1994-1995. But i guess he was still drinking all the way through the Pop album (1997).

Either way, great job on all accounts, Adam !

Do we think they'll do anything special for Arizona? Flights to Phoenix can be had pretty cheap, and it's probably my last shot at GA.

They will do nothing out of the ordinary. If a standard U2 show is special enough then you should definitely go, I'm sure it'll be great! But don't go expecting something rare or region specific... IGC is already in the set permanently.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who heard they may play the entire Joshua Tree album in sequence in Phoenix.

Well, for a lot of addicts, sobriety doesn't necessarily "take" on the first try. Entirely possible he started working on it earlier. Or was sober a few years then relapsed, but hasn't had a relapse since '98. I think most recovering addicts start over with their timeline of sobriety if they relapse.
