Query...

Maybe this is the dumbest question I've ever asked, but in "Numb", the person doing backup (singing "too much is not enough")...is that edge?

Larry does backing vocals on Numb on record and when it was done live in 1993.

I think it's Bono on the album....at least it was in the video if I remember right. I haven't watched it in a long time.

Larry sings, "I feel numb." Bono does all the falsetto. At least, that was always how I understood it.

Ok..so lets see if I get this straight...
Bono - main lyrics and falsetto (such as too much is not enough)
Larry - "I feel numb"
?????
So no edge?

Edge does all the monotone. "Don't move, don't talk out of time," etc.

You guys are making me laugh!!

Edge: Main lyrics

Bono: falsetto, or as they called it then, the "big fat black lady voice"

Larry:"I feel numb"

You can see in the video after Adam wraps the clothsline around Edge's face, Larry leans in from one said and mouths "I feel numb" and then Bono comes in from the other with "the Fat Lady".

And yes, that's Paul McGuinness who cames and whispers to Edge, "There's someone I'd like you to meet." at the end of the video.

Yes, I am
