Another Reason I Wish Ronnie Van Zant Were Here Today

Why is it that I like Johnny Van Zant better when he's singing with brother Donnie on Get Right With The Man, than I do when he's fronting Lynyrd Skynyrd? He sings lead on most of the Van Zant album, but Donnie has a decent voice. And with less pretension. But thankfully, Johnny's not the annoyance that he is with Skynyrd. Since he's taking over full time lead vocal duties, Johnny has added nothing to the Skynyrd catalog. And watching him on the RRHOF telecast mugging his way (and going through the motions) through "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama" makes you wish Ronnie was here to smack him upside the head.
