I wouldn't change it by much, maybe just make it a little more full sounding, you know what I mean? I think that Johnny's guitar work is just as much a defining factor for their sound as Thom's singing. But then again who knows they might sound terrible if his voice was different it could ruin their sound.

oh and Josh Homme is a genius, I love QOTSA

I guess if Robert Plant could've hit the majority of his notes live, rather than lower them and improv/speak his way through much of their material while posing, I would've dug Zeppelin even more than I do already.

Don't get me wrong, I still think he was an incredible frontman and the band is one of the all-time greatest, but he came off less capable live than any of the others from a technical point of view. Technique isn't everything but when it sounded so bad-ass on tape I rarely got that from him live.

I guess I expected to hear certain songs like ''Rock and Roll'', ''Whole Lotta Love'', ''Dazed and Confused'', ''Stairway To Heaven'' and others closer to their album versions because they were so awesome and the bar was set so high for as to what my expectations were for the live versions.

I don't mind bands changing live renditions, in fact I often like it more, but Zeppelin for some reason came off lack-lustre and sloppy more often than not. Just my opinion. Cheers!
