    Feel sorrier for Steve and Cassie. Well all of them really.

    Person I feel the worst for is artimus. He had to crawl to get help all that time knowing the Ronnie, Cassie, Steve were dead. Thatís torture.

    I love Allen, But Rossington was the guy, for me (He & Ronnie).

    Rossington just had that signature, biting Skynyrd sound.
    He played slower, with more double stops, but his feel & tone was so killer.

    Loved Rossington/Collins, also.

    Before FW hit in '81, Gary Rossington had this great Dropped-D riff in 1980.

    Both guitar solo's are just so good, with that loose, almost funky feel that Skynyrd
    always had.

    I never tire of it, and i remember it being on the radio in 1980/81.

    I love that slow breakdown, then he comes in with that solo.
    Bands in those days just knew how to swing & make everything so musical.

    I love this song too... Rossington Collins Band had the sound of where Skynyrd was headed with Steve Gaines. Barry Harwood had a similar smoky style voice as Steve, and he and Dale Krantz sang that song beautifully.

    They might have carried on, but Allen Collins wife died soon after and he was a lost soul from then on.

    Yeah, i loved that whole album.

    You can't replace Ronnie, but i think they took the Skynyrd feel and morphed it with
    a little more of the commercial aspect of radio, especially with the vocals.

    I think it was a smart direction.

    I never liked Skynyrd with the other Van Zandt singing (Johnny?)

    Skynyrd has a lot of deep tracks too that are REALLY good.

    Great band.

    Great band.
    Such great musicians, but also kinda reckless & dangerous.

    I read a few Skynyrd books, and they fought everyone.
    Then they'd turn on each other, with Ronnie knocking people's teeth out,
    or attacking Gary with a broken bottle.

    But then they had this insane discipline, where they rehearsed constantly.

    You'd think they'd be one or the other, but they were both:
    Super ambitious, and extremely irresponsible.

    Never saw the original pre crash LS but I had a friend who went to see Aerosmith at RFK stadium in the early 70s and LS opened . He always told me many people felt let down when the then very toxic twins took the stage. Sound familiar?

    sometimes I hear a Lynyrd Skynyrd song and get so annoyed that Ronnie Van Zant isn't given more due as a great American rock lyricist. This song, on their 1971 demos, two years before they even released their first album:

    "It's been so long since I've been gone
    Another day might be too long for me
    Traveling around I've had my fill
    Of broken dreams and dirty deals
    A concrete jungle surrounding me
    Many nights I've slept out in the streets
    I paid my dues and I changed my style
    Seen hard times, all over now

    I want to come home. It's been so long since I've been away
    And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
    I'll be coming home soon to your love, to stay

    I miss old friends that I once had
    Times ain't changed and I'll be glad when I go home
    I don't know why the thought came to me
    But why I'm here I really can't see, and now

    I want to come home. It's been so long since I've been away
    And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
    I'll be coming home soon to your love, to stay

    Coming home to stay
    Coming home to your love, mama
    I've seen better days

    I miss old friends that I once had
    Times ain't changed and I'll be glad when I go home
    I don't know why the thought came to me
    But why I'm here I really can't see, and now

    I want to come home. it's been so long since I've been away
    And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
    I'll be coming home soon to your love, to stay

    Coming home to stay
    Coming home to your love, mama
    I've seen better days"
