« on: May 14, 2018, 04:17:01 PM »
I just saw LMJr credited with backing vocals on Zoo TV Live (Sydney). What vocals did he do?

I know he sings backing on Numb a bit.  I think as you watch the show you can see him add a little to a few other songs (can't remember which off the top of my head).

If I remember correctly, Larry wrote the chorus of Numb so they try to force him to sing on it.

That's funny. I'm trying to think where backing vocals are done on the live version.

I see Adam doing some backing vocals at Red Rocks, like I Will Follow.

I don't have any idea of the quality of either of their vocals.

We know Edge has a nice voice. He sang the last verse of Stand By Me somewhere on Zoo TV and it was very nice - along with other examples.

Larry has sung live on Zoo Station, Numb, SBS, Love & Peace, Elevation, ASOH and Daddy's Gonna Pay.

I remember watching some footage of the 87 tour and Adam sang backing in parts of Bullet

Larry sounds like Bono. No idea what Larry's isolated singing sounds like, should be pleasant.

Larry also sings in 360 tour's Moment of Surrender. But I can't isolate him.

Do a search for Larry on youtube and you'll find him singing Irish drinking songs solo. You'll find out exactly.

Larry is absolutely used to support Bono. SBS and Elevation are great examples of that. Zoo Station. Numb, Daddy's Gonna Pay, MOS. Unknown Caller.

Thanks for sharing those! I liked LMJ's Wild Rover the best, but he did a great job on all of them.

"Larry sounds like Bono" got me intrigued enough to listen to three songs sung by Larry.

I was not impressed.

You asked the question. Don’t be frustrated if you don’t like where it took you 😉

Larry is a good singer tbf.

I have no idea where people/person got he "sounds like Bono" from though....The Edge sounds similar to Bono alright
