    I'm sure that Will is singing that part of Paradise in the studio version but I've just heard it again and honestly because Chris also sings it and his volume is louder makes it very hard to hear him in that bit, whence why I though that part was interesting. But that's the beauty of the stripped down version of their songs, you can hear small details better or ones you never even noticed!

    I just remebered something that might be worth to investigate: since they released AHFOD in surround 5.1 maybe Will's vocals are easier to hear that way. Has anyone here heard that version of the album tell me if that's the case?

    Okay guys I know I just posted yesterday but I think this is to good to not post here. So I found this performance of Amazing Day at the Belasco Theatre. Here Will chant along with Chris' is very audible and they are both really into it! And if that wasn't enough at 3:50 you can see Will snap and hit the drums like no other!

    Yes, I love this performance and his drum beats in Amazing Day.
    I like the way the beat gets stronger and how he does more drum fills near the end of the song!

    Agreed! At first it's very calm and even a bit reminiscent of his drumming style during Parachutes but then you get that great build up were he pays off big time.

    I have come here again with some more note worthy vocal perfomances from Will!

    The first one that I would like to talk about Major Minus. On this song during the "distorted" vocals you can clearly hear Will singing alongside Chris, which makes for a pretty cool effect. Now I think one of the reasons it took me so long to realise that Will is singing is that for some reason he never does his part during live perfomances.


    The other one is Speed Of Sound. On the 2006 Toronto live recording Will's vocals during the chorus are very audible, even more than Chris at times!

    Those are wonderful.
    The 2nd I like most (Speed Of Sound). Probably one of my favourites of Will's backing vocals!

    Great Thread !

    I don't have internet fast enough for videos right now but i wanted to mention Will's backing vocals on the live version of Lost!
    I remember hearing one where Chris didn't sing properly so they were very audible. He has a very cool, melodically slightly different line on "doesn't mean you've wooon....a bigger ooone" that goes up instead of down on the last word. I hope i can find it someday. It was NOT [email protected] in Chicago, that I know.
