Biography

U2 bassist Adam Clayton is a legendary musician whose songs have come to define countless classic TV and film moments. In 1985, "Wire" was featured on an episode of "Miami Vice." In the decades since, the band's work has been associated with films ranging from broad comedies like the high concept Adam Sandler flick "Click" ("Ultra Violet Light My Way"), to gritty period dramas like Martin Scorsese's Best Picture-nominated "Gangs of New York," which featured "The Hands That Built America," a track specially written for the film by the band. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" was featured in Harmony Korine's controversial teen drama "Kids" in 1995. The following year, Clayton performed the theme for Hollywood's blockbuster adaptation of "Mission: Impossible," and the tune has become a pop culture touchstone in and of itself. Clayton has also appeared as himself in a number of documentary and concert films, including "U2: Rattle and Hum," which spotlights the group's 1987 North American tour. He starred alongside Bono in the two-part "Music of Ireland" TV miniseries, and voiced an animated facsimile of himself in a 1998 episode of "The Simpsons." Clayton was co-nominated for an Oscar in 2002 for U2's contribution to the "Gangs of New York" soundtrack.
