Default Taylor - Too Big, Too Much?

Has anyone seen an interview where Taylor explains what this vocal snippet at the end of La Dee Da is about? It sounds like someone is giving him a back massage by standing on him!

I thought it was Dave and Alison Mosshart talking about how the screaming they were doing was too much, they went too hard, but I'm probably wrong, my ears are seemingly not what they were.

sounds like Taylor being recorded down a phone as they are playing him back the record - and that's his reaction

Or maybe Lars really gave him that massage hardcore!

I thought this was maybe what caused the "Fuck You, Daryll!!" at the end of the album from when the headphones were cranked too loud. We get the Too Much as if in pain then the FU at the end of the album.

I thought it was Taylor, and I thought it may have been related to the saxophone recordings that they had to cut from the album because it was just too much sax.

Dave and Taylor mention it I think in the Chris Moyles interview...

Before this month I haven’t been on here since around the 1x1 days but this is still relevant?

Is this still in the FAQ section?

Is the old AT&T webcast still streamable?

Talking Re: Taylor - Too Big, Too Much?

I've wondered this same thing and searched the best I could...and have not found anything concrete...or gold!

Which is strange in today's Google-indexed world of immediate answers. I did find this on an album review article:
“La Dee Da” is a fun head-banger that explores the idea of being unapologetically true to oneself. The Foo Fighters opt out of closing the song with a guitar riff and end the song by yelling it was “too much.”
Also, I watched the Dave and Taylor interview with Chris Moyles again and the only reference I found was around 23:23 of the interview where they are talking about Dave Koz's massive sax solo that was eventually cut from the song because it was, as Taylor said in the interview, "too much."

My best deduction given the evidence is: they recorded Taylor hilariously lambasting about how the sax solo was too much while they were in production mode on the album and that song in particular.

Cheers!

Reminds me of the One by One BTS videos. When Taylor was hassling Chris about not liking Oreos?
