Has Bob ever lip synced?

If so - any video evidence?

Have you ever seen any of his music videos?

At least he has the good grace to be useless at it.

I was thinking of live performances. For example, I have wondered about the CBC tapes from the 1960s........

The CBC tapes aren't lipsynced, I think it's just a very well positioned mic out of shot.

I think we can safely say Bob doesn't lip sync in concert these days. :lol:


EDIT: Having watched it again, Bob's definitely not lip syncing. You can hear and see his foot occasionally tapping, and if you watch his fingers on the guitar, it's bang on, fumbles and all. I've no idea where they've hidden the mic, given there's several wide shots from different angles, but there's so much junk on stage, they could have just hidden it behind something - or it's above the shot hanging from the rafters somewhere. There's lots of reverb, which would suggest that the mic is far off somewhere.

Thanks for your observations. It was the absence of a mike that was confusing me! But a close listen shows that his singing is not exactly the same as the recorded versions.

Just in case people have not seen this:

Quest 1964

There was a discussion back in 93 when he grabbed the Mic during Willies bash. Some swore he was lip syncing :lol:

The "live in concert" scenes from Hearts of Fire.
If my memeory serves me well, only his performance of Couple More Years, near the end, looks like it could have been sung live.

I'm not at all convinced that Bob's actually playing that Fender bass on "Jesus Met the Woman at the Well" on the Trouble No More DVD.

:lol:

He's sort of toying with it. The rhythm guitar player is basically playing the bass part for him. It's sort of reminiscent of Bob's occasional strumming on the electric half of the 66 shows, which you can barely hear.
