Default Pat doing background vocals

He's pretty good at it, better than Chris at least.
I was just watching this video, and decided to make a thread about it.

The video was posted today, and it had one view. Seems like you may just be advertising for a video you threw up there...

that being said, Pat was pretty good on back up, but haven't noticed it much recently.

Actually, Taylor is the best one for backing vocals, at least, that's my opinion

Pat goes above Chris. He sounded spot on when he used to do back ups. Chris is good, but I think Pat was always a notch higher.

THIS IS NO HATE RESPONSE OKE I REALLY LIKE CHRIS

i put Pat above Chris and i put Nate above Chris
why?.... because i never hear Chris onstage when he's singing.
so if the F.O.H. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Front_of_House ) guy doesn't like Chris his voice, that must mean he doesn't sound that good as a background vocalist!

REMEMBER I REALLY LIKE CHRIS

Actually it should be:

Taylor
Franz
Chris/Pat

I can't really say who is the better at backups between Chris and Pat. They both were/are really good on some songs and really bad on others.

Hmm, if Chris could do backup vocals like this all the time:

Then he is my favorite

Pat's back up vocals in the early tours were ace. His harmonies on the bridge of "Alone + Easy Target" were pure syrup.

But since then the band has moved along, Taylor and Dave work so well together I think.
