Adam Clayton's braces are causing his lisp

[Warning: this post is PLEBA-esque]

I noticed recently that Adam Clayton speaks with a slight lisp/slur these days. It was pretty strong when he took the mic at the Grammys last week, for example.

Then I realized that lately he's been wearing braces on his lower teeth. These must be the cause of it!

If this doesn't qualify me as an obsessive-compulsive U2 fan, then I don't know what does.

I was more focused on Bono's slight slur at the Grammys

I did notice a slight lisp when I heard him speak at the R&R Hall of Fame speech. I thought maybe I just never noticed before so went back and watched some videos I have where he speaks, no lisp.

Hmm, now I really don't want to get braces, aside from the cost of getting them. :P Though it's nice I have the option of getting clear ones these days.

Adam's always had a very slight, charming lisp. At least as far back as Rattle & Hum.

Yes, the lisp has been around for a while.

I honestly thought Bono had been into the wodka or something. He seemed kind of out of it, rambling and slurred a lot of his speech.

I know he's ususlly the first two, but it was moreso than usual

Bono has had a couple of Grammy speeches that sounded slightly alcohol induced.

Adam lisp ...
I am sorry ladies . But everything Adam does is sexy to me. If you told me Adam eats grasshopper salad for lunch and you saw some of it stuck in his teeth I would say"that's hot".


I need help

Why am I not surprised to see you in here Carmel?

To thrillme who said about getting braces - they're really not that bad, honest! I don't think Adam's have been causing him to lisp, at least if he does it's not noticable to me at all. I had them for about 18 months and I'm really glad now that I did! So just to say, if you are not sure, I'd say go for it if you do need them.

I had braces for four years and I never had a lisp... they made me not be able to whistle, though.

I got the clear braces thing as a retainer and I hated them... but after a few months I chomped right through it in the night and that was it for those.

I remember that!

when he spoke he had a lisp and I thought I was hearing things when he spoke.

Man, who cares if Adam has a lisp or not? I hate Interference when there's no new U2 material to talk about.

You're on to something there. I wouldn't even come here anymore if it weren't for the drama.
