    Walking in to the office and I see Skynyrd on an outside set. Shame I had no time to hang to watch the performance.

    They used to be one of my favorite bands. Glad to see they are still apparently doing well!

    The present.
    Great photo. Thanks!

    I saw them on June 15, 1977 in Springfield, Massachusetts. Foreigner and .38 Special opened. No-one knew who .38 Special was at the time and I recall we thought the lead vocalist was Ronnie Van Zant for a moment.

    On October 20th of that year Lynyrd Skynyrd's plane crashed in Mississippi.

    RIP Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines, Dean Kilpatrick, (also pilot Walter McCreary and co-pilot William Gray). We've missed you...

    Ooops sorry, I meant no disrespect. I did not know about the plane crash or the passing of the founders.

    Named after high school physical education teacher Leonard Skinner. Along with Led Zeppelin, they are my all-time favorite rock bands.

    I never liked the Rossington-Collins or Collins iteration.

    Along with The Marshal Tucker Band and Charlie Daniels, their music made hot Summer nights in the South go a little easier during the 70s.
