This concert film captures southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd performing over a
dozen songs at a 1996 music festival appearance.
Lynyrd Skynyrd was the definitive Southern rock band, fusing the
overdriven power of blues-rock with a rebellious Southern image and a
hard rock swagger. Skynyrd never relied on the jazzy improvisations of
the Allman Brothers. Instead, they were a hard-living, hard-driving rock
& roll band they may have jammed endlessly on-stage, but their
music remained firmly entrenched in blues, rock, and country. For many,
Lynyrd Skynyrd's redneck image tended to obscure the songwriting skills
of their leader, Ronnie Van Zant. Throughout the band's early records,
Van Zant demonstrated a knack for lyrical detail and a down-to-earth
honesty that had more in common with country than rock & roll.
During the height of Skynyrd's popularity in the mid-'70s, however, Van
Zant's talents were overshadowed by the group's gritty, greasy
blues-rock. Sadly, it wasn't until he was killed in a tragic plane crash
in 1977 along with two other bandmembers that many listeners began to
realize his talents. Skynyrd split up after the plane crash, but they
reunited a decade later, becoming a popular concert act during the early
While in high school in Jacksonville, FL, Ronnie Van Zant (vocals),
Allen Collins (guitar), and Gary Rossington (guitar) formed My Backyard.
Within a few months, the group added bassist Leon Wilkeson and
keyboardist Billy Powell, and changed their name to Lynyrd Skynyrd, a
mocking tribute to their gym teacher Leonard Skinner, who was notorious
for punishing students with long hair. With drummer Bob Burns, Lynyrd
Skynyrd began playing throughout the South. For the first few years, the
group had little success, but producer Al Kooper signed the band to MCA
after seeing them play at an Atlanta club called Funocchio's in 1972.
Kooper produced the group's 1973 debut, Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd,
which was recorded after former Strawberry Alarm Clock guitarist Ed King
joined the band. The group became notorious for their triple-guitar
attack, which was showcased on "Free Bird," a tribute to the recently
deceased Duane Allman. "Free Bird" earned Lynyrd Skynyrd their first
national exposure and it became one of the staples of album rock radio,
still receiving airplay decades after its release.
"Free Bird" and an opening slot on the Who's 1973 Quadrophenia tour gave
Lynyrd Skynyrd a devoted following, which helped their second album,
1974's Second Helping, become its breakthrough hit. Featuring the hit
single "Sweet Home Alabama" a response to Neil Young's "Southern Man"
Second Helping reached number 12 and went multi-platinum. At the end of
the year, Artimus Pyle replaced drummer Burns and King left the band
shortly afterward. The new sextet released Nuthin' Fancy in 1975, and it
became the band's first Top Ten hit. The record was followed by the Tom
Dowd-produced Gimme Back My Bullets in 1976, which failed to match the
success of its two predecessors. However, the band retained their
following through constant touring, which was documented on the double
live album One More from the Road. Released in late 1976, the album
featured the band's new guitarist, Steve Gaines, and a trio of female
backup singers, and it became Skynyrd's second Top Ten album.
Lynyrd Skynyrd released their sixth album, Street Survivors, on October
17, 1977. Three days later, a privately chartered plane carrying the
band between shows in Greenville, SC, and Baton Rouge, LA, crashed
outside of Gillsburg, MS. Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, and his sister
Cassie, one of the group's backing vocalists, died in the crash; the
remaining members were injured. (The cause of the crash was either fuel
shortage or a fault with the plane's mechanics.) The cover for Street
Survivors had pictured the band surrounded in flames; after the crash,
the cover was changed. In the wake of the tragedy, the album became one
of the band's biggest hits. Lynyrd Skynyrd broke up after the crash,
releasing a collection of early demos called Skynyrd's First and...Last
in 1978; it had been scheduled for release before the crash. The
double-album compilation Gold & Platinum was released in 1980.
Later in 1980, Rossington and Collins formed a new band naturally named
Rossington Collins Band that featured four surviving members. Two years
later, Pyle formed the Artimus Pyle Band. Collins suffered a car crash
in 1986 that killed his girlfriend and left him paralyzed; four years
later, he died of respiratory failure. In 1987, Rossington, Powell,
King, and Wilkeson reunited Lynyrd Skynyrd, adding vocalist Johnny Van
Zant and guitarist Randall Hall. The band embarked on a reunion tour,
which was captured on the 1988 double live album Southern by the Grace
of God/Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute Tour 1987. The re-formed Skynyrd began
recording in 1991, and for the remainder of the decade, the band toured
frequently, putting out albums occasionally. The reunited Skynyrd
frequently switched drummers, but it had little effect on their sound.
During the '90s, Lynyrd Skynyrd were made honorary colonels in the
Alabama State Militia, due to their classic rock staple "Sweet Home
Alabama." During the mid-'90s, Van Zant, Rossington, Wilkeson, and
Powell regrouped by adding two Southern rock veterans to Skynyrd's
guitar stable: former Blackfoot frontman Rickey Medlocke and ex-Outlaws
Hughie Thomasson. With ex-Damn Yankee Michael Cartellone bringing
stability to the drum chair, the reconstituted band signed to CMC
International for the 1997 album Twenty. This lineup went on to release
Lyve from Steeltown in 1998, followed a year later by Edge of Forever.
The seasonal effort Christmas Time Again was released in fall 2000.
Although Wilkeson died one year later, Lynyrd Skynyrd regrouped and
recorded Vicious Cycle for a 2003 release. The DVD/CD Lyve: The Vicious
Cycle Tour followed a year later, 2006 saw the release of Face to Face,
and 2007 brought Paper Sleeve Box and Lyve from Steel Town. But death
continued to haunt the band, and the lineup continued to change, as much
from attrition as anything else. Wilkeson, Skynyrd's bassist since
1972, died in 2001 and was replaced by Ean Evans that same year (Evans
in turn died in 2009). Thomasson left the band to reform his band
Outlaws in 2005, dying two years later in 2007. His spot in Skynyrd was
taken by Mark "Sparky" Matejka, formerly of Hot Apple Pie, in 2006.
Original keyboardist Powell died at the age of 56 at his home near
Jacksonville, Fl in 2009. That year also saw the release of a new studio
album, God + Guns, on Roadrunner Records. Live From Freedom Hall was
released on the same label in 2010. A new studio album, Last of a Dyin'
Breed, produced by Bob Marlette, recorded at Blackbird Studio in
Nashville, and featuring a new bass player, Johnny Colt (formerly a
bassist for the Black Crowes), appeared in 2012.
