Lynyrd Skynyrd ...


... was my starting point, when i got interested in music and also a great inspiration to play the guitar. Some 36 years ago on the 20th of Octobre 1977 their chartered airplane crashed in a swamp near Gillsburg, Mississippi and killed six passengers with lead singer Ronnie Van Zant among them. Despite further tragedies and feuds between the survivors the band exists until today with one remaining original member, guitarist Gary Rossington, and Ronnie's brother Johnny doing the vocal work. Kudos to You Tube for providing the platform and to everyone, who uploaded all these videos - watching them is a tremendous joy and something i never thought would be possible.
