Lynryd Skynyrd

Skynyrd were really a 70’s band and the matrics at school were listening to them when I first went to Potch.  It was only after I finished school that I could actually afford to get some of these albums.  Len and I used to sit in his pub and have a whole lot of toots mixing in all the brand new 80’s stuff like Quiet Riot, Q5, Night Ranger and Autograph with timeless bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Journey and ZZ Top.

Skynyrd is timeless and they are the best example of Southern Rock that you will find. In today’s great resurgence of Southern Rock they all acknowledge the debt that the world owes this band. This video is just so good, check out Gary Rossington’s slide guitar on this, it just doesn’t get better.
