Wouldn't the C♯2 count as sung, then?

Yeah, that C#2 is 100 percent sung. Just happens to be in an interview.

E2s in the Dallas Green song 'Sleeping Sickness', too. Also sung.

Did anyone record the concert? I found a few good D5s as well as an E5 during the performance. I watched at a bar so I didn't get to record it. And yes I'm Canadian

Two E5s, an octave up from the studio. Kinda sounds like modern day rob halford.

Hey Timmerbo, I know you haven't been very active for quite some time, but we'd love to have you over at TRP 3.0 if you'd like to register. http://therangeplace.boards.net/
