Does Adam sing?

I just finished re-reading U2 at the End of the World, and right at the end the newly recovering Adam was talking to Bill about his bass lessons in New York. ANd then he says, "I've even started singing lessons, quite enjoying..."

So has he ever sung, back up or anything?

The Jazzman has been known to erm.....sing backing vocals. On JT tour he did the SKY bit on Bullet. I think there are others, but they escape me for now. Dont think u can class his bit in Your Blue Room as singing tho.

In U2 by U2 he says his singing after the lessons didn't amount to much.

His keyboard playing however, is much appreciated.

My favourite example of Adam singing backup is this live performance of Two Hearts Beat as One from 1983:

He decides to join in, quite randomly it seems, at the very end (after the 4 minute mark)

he provides vocals for Endless Deep, a B-Side from the Two Hearts Beat As One Single, and Your Blue Room, from the Passengers Soundtrack and a B-Side to the Staring At The Sun Single.

Watch at the 1:52 point.

He also sings a lot on Boomerang II, a b-side on the Pride single.

Your Blue Room.

The greatest U2 song that wasn't.

I think I read somewhere that they never used to plug his mike in? I cant remember where I saw that, though.

He also does a speaking bit on the Common Ground album, where he and Bono do "Tomorrow"

He has a very melodic speaking voice, I don't see why he wouldn't be able to sing! Maybe he's just modest.

Maybe he tries to, but Bono just laughs at him and continues to sing "And I still don't know how much of a knob I am..."

...ah the Chaser boys.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Wouldn't it be awesome if they did a Fab Four and had all four of them singing on a song?

Imagine Larry on Mercy. "I was drinking some wine... and it turned to blood...(these new lyrics are horrible!)"
