Clayton was previously engaged to supermodel Naomi Campbell for a few months in 1994, but the two broke things off after a few months of dating. 

Guests at the cermony included Clayton's bandmate the Edge and his wife, Morleigh Steinberg, who wished the couple well following their vows. Clayton and Teixeira will be celebrating the nuptials over a three-day reception in France this weekend with 150 guests.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
