Lynyrd Skynyrd

Submitted by Kiran Herbert on Thu, 06/11/2015 - 9:36am

Even if you’re not a hardcore Lynyrd Skynyrd fan, you’ve likely heard the group’s greatest hits: “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Simple Man,” and “Free Bird.” The definition of a Southern rock band, Lynyrd Skynyrd formed in 1965, combining elements of blues and country with honest, skillful lyrics. Three original band members—including lead vocalist and songwriter Ronnie Van Zant—were killed in a 1977 plane crash, but the outfit has endured by adding the late singer's younger brother Johnny Van Zant and churning out new material (Last of a Dyin’ Breed was released in 2012).
