I really adore the earliest Adam but I think my favorite Adam is 2009 Adam!!! He is not getting older, he is getting so much better! ;)

He was my favorite probably starting in around 1992 with the Zoo TV tour, although I always thought he was very cool. But around that time I started to be certain Adam is the one from U2 who I would most enjoy spending time with on any level. I was 22 at the time so a "bad boy" 10 years older was wildly attractive. I'm not a big believer in astrology but his birthday is very close to mine (month/date, not year obviously) and there are some things he's said about his temperament that remind me of me. Now that I'm, ahem, a few years older, I love Adam's maturity yet he's still having fun and now he's staying out of trouble. So I guess my favorite Adam is all of them :)

Great descriptions! My favorite Adam is, no contest, the current one. He's matured so gracefully, and just in the last several years, seems to have acquired true confidence and poise, being comfortable in his own skin. The silver hair looks great on him and I like his new sparkly outfits...

Very close call between NLOTH Adam and JT Adam, but JT Adam wins by a nose.

I love Adam's many looks but my favorite is 2009 Adam.....he is sexier now with his grey hair; he is classy and sexy. You can tell he is coming into his own and I love it!!! 

I do miss the glasses though......I find most men in glasses very hot!!! ;D
