Subject: 27 years ago tomorrow...

Written By: GWBush2004 on 10/19/04 at 4:43 pm

October 20, 1977.
A tragic day in the history of what I feel is the best southern rock band ever. Lynyrd Skynyrd.

continue to RIP:

Ronnie Van Zant
Steve Gaines
Cassie Gaines
& Dean Kilpatrick

RnRF,

I have an old friend in Colorado Springs who is a MAJOR FAN of Skynyrd, even the geriatric version.  :P

They did two of the most memorable rock song ever: "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama."

And of course other good songs, too. They were indeed a great band.

Yeah, I saw that VH1 special.  It was pretty cool.  I remember when those guys broke out in '73 or '74.  They rocked.  I also remember the day of their plane crash.  I was walking in the dark, it was raining, when I heard over the radio.  That blew.

Seems like Artimus had a falling out with the rest of the band and has not been with them for the past few years.

As for Johnny Van Zant, I see him as a bogus pretender.  It would be one thing to do some sort of "tribute concert", but to actually tour for 17 tears as Skynyrd is a cheap desecration.  And I am not even a Skynyrd "fanatic" or "purist".

I mean, what if the Beatles did a tour with a fake George and a fake John?
