Very nice...he should be so proud of himself, and of those many people that he has helped.

Congratulations Adam. This may be why he is in such great shape. A person who has seen the highest and lowest life has.

Now, inspiring everyone. And, he always looks happy.

Well deserved. His story and recovery is very inspirational. I think it's also wonderful how he's involved with mental health awareness and music programs for kids. The world could definitely use more musicians who seem to be as genuine and caring as Adam is.

He's the third U2 member to receive an award over the past few months (Bono won person of the year, Larry recently received the Yamaha lifetime achievement award). Wonder if The Edge will get an award soon?

Ah! Must have missed it. Good for him, though isn't he more of a Fender guy? ;D

This award is certainly an honor for Adam.  Recovery from addiction is a powerful struggle, and anyone who has been through it knows how much it can change a person's life for the better. 

On another note, is anyone else planning on attending the benefit concert where the award will be presented?  I went a couple of year's ago when Pete Townshend was honored, and it was very cool.  The Who performed with a bunch of special guests, including Bruce Springsteen (who presented the award to Pete Townshend).  I'm hoping (and kind of expecting) that U2 will be performing at this year's benefit.  The band will likely be in NYC for the shows at MetLife later that week, so it fits easily in their schedule. 

I bought tickets as soon as I heard about it.  It would be amazing to see U2 in that small of a room, and the cost of tickets benefits the MusiCares MAP Fund.
