U2's Adam Clayton is opening up about his struggle with alcoholism. Entertainment Tonight shares that the 57-year-old bassist was honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award at the MusiCares MAP Fund concert in New York City this week for his work with the charity, which helps musicians with addiction recovery. During his passionate speech, Clayton thanked his bandmates, who have supported him through his battle with alcohol. Clayton commented, ""I’m an alcoholic, addict, but in some ways that devastating disease is what drove me towards this wonderful life I now have. It’s just that I couldn’t take my friend alcohol. At some point I had to leave it behind and claim my full potential." He went on to share, "Bono, the Edge, and Larry truly supported me before and after I entered recovery, and I am unreservedly grateful for their friendship, understanding and support."
