Do you know why Robert Plant's performance of "Innuendo" is not included in the FMTC DVD??...

I recall watching the concert live on TV back in 92 and I think he didn't sing it too well... do you agree??...

It was not included because they were not happy with the performance.

Actually, it was him who wasn't happy with it.

Like at Live Aid, big-bollocks Plant didnt like it, so it doesn't go on the DVD. It's a shame, cause he was wank at Crazy Little Thing Called Love too yet that was included. I know which I'd rather have included...

Those who've read my posts in the past know how much I like Robert Plant, but he really did blow that song badly. I taped it (on VHS) when it was broadcast on MTV and there were muiltiple problems. One, the mic he was using didn't work for the first 30 seconds of the song-no sound what-so-ever came through. Two, he was way off key (as were many singers that day). Three, he screwed up the lyrics worse than he did on CLTCL. The only part that worked was the middle section where he did a little bit of "Kashmir". As far as the Zeppelin reunion at Live Aid goes, can you balme him? That was a travesty, the most horrible moment of the day.

I can't imagine that anybody would be happy with that performance.

Im thinking that with his vocal range and style of voice, Roger Taylor may have done a good job on Innuendo at the FMTC.
He's proved he can sing and drum at the same time.
What do u think?


Innuendo or Kashmir? Both awesome!

The first 30 seconds werent inaudible. Atleast on the version I heard and saw on some website. It's a queen site I saw on Serry's page under the audio video section. I dont remember the name of the site. Anyway what I noticed is the audio alone sounded terrible but when I watched the video it wasn't as bad. Hey, Freddie had a great voice and sings the song pretty high and Robert Plant's voice doesnt have as much range as it had in the past. I think around '92 he was still adjusting to the limittions of his voice but I read a review of his recent tour and it said unlike the 90's were he went for high notes and missed them he stays in his lower register and it works great for him.
