What an AMAZING show that is gong to be.
Did You KNOW??
Lynyrd Skynyrd , following a performance at the Greenville Memorial Auditorium in Greenville, South Carolina, on October 20, 1977 boarded a chartered Convair CV-300 bound for Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where they were scheduled to appear at LSU the following night.
Due to a faulty engine, the airplane ran low on fuel and the pilots attempted an emergency landing before crashing in a heavily forested area five miles northeast of Gillsburg, Mississippi. Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines, along with backup singer Cassie Gaines (Steve's older sister), assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary, and co-pilot William Gray were killed on impact; other band members (Collins, Rossington, Wilkeson, Powell, Pyle, and Hawkins), tour manager Ron Eckerman and several road crew suffered serious injuries.
Lynyrd Skynyrd disbanded after the tragedy, reuniting only on one occasion to perform an instrumental version of "Free Bird" Volunteer Jam V in January 1979.
Collins, Rossington, Powell, and Pyle performed the song with fellow band member Leon Wilkeson, who was still undergoing physical therapy for his badly broken left arm, with another MUSIC LEGEND ICON
