    Lynyrd Skynyrd and Ronnie Van Zant's widow, Judy Van Zant Jenness, are livid at VH1 over the Uncivil War special the network aired last month. "The show is full of non-truths, half-truths and journalistic sensationalism," the band says in an online post. "[VH1] took liberties to make 'compelling' television and dishonor a legendary band and its members." Read a letter from Jenness here.

    What a intersting show it was! And we thought VH had problems! She states that she has a great relationship with the band...of course she does...because as long as they are out there touring, she gets a cut of the money! I could not believe that Johnny Van Zant was even considering doing a show on the site of the plane crash on the day of the 25th anniversary. Does he need the money that bad? I love this band, and I am glad they are still out there touring. But i never knew there was this much fighting going on after all these years. Ricky Medlocke is a big breath of fresh air in the band.

    When the camera started to roll.........folks spilled their guts about how they felt about the situation.

    When the editor put it together, he didn't cut the negative shit out. He let the story tell itself.........the good and the bad. I've cut plenty of shit out of "testimonials" and interviews.........VH1 just reported the truth.

    And anyone who thought that the end product was going to be any different then in really was is an idiot. The line of questioning was a dead giveaway considering they asked about the negative shit. Now they may have asked a lot of of other questions.....you know fluff.........but to blame this on VH 1 is a joke........much like the current state of The Lyrnard Skynard Band.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett
