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.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
