Lynyrd Skynyrd are best known for popularizing the southern hard-rock genre during the 1970s. The band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its driving live performances and signature tunes Sweet Home Alabama and Free Bird. At the peak of their success, three members, including band leader Ronnie Van Zant, tragically died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band’s most popular line up.
This looks to be a great collection for any fan of Southern Rock, bringing together, for the first time, a complete picture of the Southern Rock giants at their peak.
