I Walked With A Zombie

Why didn’t Peter sing on this song? Michael, Mike and Bill all took turns singing lead but Peter didn’t. I suppose he just didn’t want to? Thanks in advance for any/all replies.

I think it’s Peter doing the spoken verse, no?

I think that’s Michael.

Sounds like Peter to me.

I think Peter explained, in an interview once, why he didn’t sing. Although, i know he did on one of his solo songs.

I’ve always had the impression that Peter flat-out couldn’t sing. That might have just been him being modest in an interview, but as someone who can’t sing myself, I took it at face value.

I always thought it was Peter doing the spoken verse. Maybe I’m wrong!
