The Crowes set was at least listenable, which is more than I can say for the Page/Coverdale or Page/Plant recordings. I won't even elaborate on the disaster that was The Firm. Given all that, I'd say his batting average just isn't all that high post-Zep. IOW, what you say might have been true circa 1970 something...but the evidence is showing something very different since then.
I actually thought his record with Coverdale was outstanding. Although it could of easily been mistaken for Zeppelin material i loved it.
