Adam "singing"
« on: August 18, 2009, 03:04:43 PM »
Just noticed watching some of the Joshua Tree tour on YouTube, and for some songs (such as I Will Follow, ISHFWILF) Adam has a microphone in front of him, and he was clearly miming (as opposed to singing) the chorus. Anyone any idea why he was doing this? He clearly wasn't actually singing, and we all know he doesn't have a singing voice...

He does sing except he doesn't anymore.

Nah, there's no way he's actually singing. Check the Joshua Tree Paris concert. He is clearly miming. Why would they do this?

It is only backing vocals anyway and in other videos during the JT tour, the backings sounded much thicker when I see Adam near the mike.

I wouldn't really call it singing, more so like spoken word stuff.
