    Default Backing Vocals 2007...I know...I know...

    Look I've read all the opinions. I know the horse is dead and the bat is broken. But I was just watching this video and it got me thinking....

    Let me just say, that I never really bought the arguments that Wolfie wasn't singing or that they were piping in backing vox. Could be true. But I never really bought.

    Now to the video....



    Now after the solo when they go into the quiet part...there is a moment when Dave even looks at Wolfie and motions for them to quiet down as he wants the crowd to sing the chorus. Yet Ed and Wolfie sing it anyways along with the crowd. I've also seen this in other DTNA videos. I just found it peculiar this time around watching it.

    Why, when Dave is obviously wanting the crowd to sing the chorus do Ed and Wolfie continue singing the chorus?

    Granted, if there were backing vox I'm sure Dave would know about it. But perhaps on occasion he forgot. I don't know.

    Then again what I just said kind of does away with my entire fuckin' theory.

    Anyways...just a thought I had. Mods feel free to close this at the slightest sense that another backing vocals conspiracy argument might break out.

    I'm too lazy right now to find you an example, but after watching dozens of boots from that tour, there are plenty of examples of Wolf and/or Ed coming in during that part but then quiet down (like they aren't sure whether they should be singing or not). That's really them singing live during DTNA.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
