Post Interesting article on the Lynyrd Skynyrd namesake...
I found this mildly amusing, never realized this is how the band was named. Happy Friday, only 6 more until Wanee :D

was there gym teacher, went on to open a restaurant under his name when the band got big. after the plane crash after Ronnie died they did a 10 years after tour with johnny as lead singer was supposed to be a 1 time tour but still going, ricky medlock was in skynyrd near the beginning but left to form blackfoot,actually got a call from Ronnie a week before the plane went down asking him to join the band ricky was busy with blackfoot and declined. anyway freebird was written about duanne allmon and now is considered to be dedicated to Ronnie van zant, Curtis lowe is loosely based on rickeys dad shorty medlocke.
