DID YOU KNOW... In the summer of 1964, teenage friends Ronnie Van Zant, Bob Burns, Allen Collins, Gary Rossington, and Larry Junstrom formed the earliest incarnation of the band in Jacksonville, Florida as "My Backyard". The band then changed its name to "The Noble Five". The band used different names before using "One Percent" during 1968.
In 1969, Ronnie Van Zant sought a new name for his band . The group settled on Leonard Skinnerd, a mocking tribute to a teacher, Leonard Skinner at Robert E. Lee High School. Skinner was notorious for strictly enforcing the school's policy against boys having long hair. Rossington dropped out of school, tired of being hassled about his hair. The more distinctive spelling "Lynyrd Skynyrd" was being used at least as early as 1970.
