    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...

    woof!

    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.
