I would never dispute that he was a Tenor in his prime and into the 80's
But i remember in an interview he said he had surgery for nodules i think
Has his voice type changed to LT since??

Don't think so. His voice has become weaker and more whispery, though, as opposed to his early Plant-like vocals.

Around 56:50 i hear an F5. not too bad considering he battled throat cancer and had to learn how to sing again (its a pretty recent concert)

His Full Voice nowadays seems limited around Bb4 from what i could hear on this show (and he sounds great on this concert btw)

It's more of a D5, but a very good one too!

Wait, you're telling me he can mumble his way down to A2 while casually speaking in an interview?! Shocked Damn, what a technical beast. That takes some real skill right there.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2CQ0FvAZuw 5:15 5th octave notes? up to B5. This should be in the OP.

I listened to his first 4 albums the other week in non note-watching mode... All I can really remember is they covered something like D3-D5 with numerous sung falsetto F#5s (Gasoline Alley and many other songs.)

The D3s were in the song (I Know) I'm losing you, and before you get the wrong idea the second singer doing the low octave is not Rod but someone else credited.

I half-assedly scrolled through his most recent album and there were a couple lows I heard, and he tends to top at A4 these days. I'll probably pay more attention to the older albums considering his A4's were much easier 40 years ago.
