…a plane carrying members of the band Lynyrd Skynyrd crashed in south Mississippi near the Louisiana state line. They were flying from Greenville, SC to Baton Rouge and ran out of fuel.

The band was really coming into their own when that plane went down. Their first few albums got great reviews and when Street Survivors was released in the summer of '77, I thought, man this thing is going to top the Billboard Charts! I was very lucky to see the original band only a few weeks before the crash, they were paired up with the British Progressive band, the Strawbs. It was a great evening of great music.


I was saddened and still am saddened to lose those great musicians.

A band at its peak of profitability shouldn’t have been flying in an outdated crate. And
sadly, some of those band members may not have made it to 40 with their hard living.
