About Lynyrd Skynyrd Tickets on TicketIQ.com
Widely considered the most influential southern rock band of all-time, Lynyrd Skynyrd traces its roots back to Jacksonville, Florida and was conceived in the summer of 1964. The band was initially named "My Backyard" before settling on the Lynyrd Skynyrd moniker, a play on the name of Leonard Skinner, a physical education teacher who enforced stricter teaching policies on boys with long hair, in 1969. The band quickly became a must-see act in the Southern U.S. and by 1973 released its first full-length record, the self-titled effort that featured the landmark hits "Gimme Three Steps", "Simple Man" and one of its most famous songs in "Free Bird". The group would quickly follow up with 1974's Second Helping, which was a breakthrough hit and included the song "Sweet Home Alabama", their most successful single. The record would reach multi-platinum status and propelled the band into superstardom, though album sales would soon waver for the following two albums Nuthin' Fancy and Gimme Back My Bullets.
1977 would spawn Street Survivors, the last album to feature all original members of the band. The album was released on October 17, just three days before a tragic plane crash took the lives of six band members and personnel. Scheduled to appear at LSU on October 21, Lynyrd Skynyrd boarded a Convair CV-300 in South Carolina on October 20. A faulty engine directed the plane to the nearby McComb-Pike County Airport in Mississippi, though low fuel forced the pilots to maneuver an emergency landing in a heavily forested area outside of Gillsburg, Mississippi. Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary, and co-pilot William Gray were all killed on impact. Skynyrd quickly disbanded after the tragedy.
It would take 10 years and both mental and physical recuperation before the band decided to reunite. Five major members of the band - Gary Rossington, Billy Powell, Artimus Pyle, Leon Wilkeson and Ed King would team up with Van Zant's younger brother Johnny for a full-fledged tour. The reunion was meant to be a one-time run in memorial of the late members, though massive success in concert ticket sales and positive reviews has allowed the reincarnation to continue for nearly 30 years. Since reuniting in 1987 Lynyrd Skynyrd has produced nine studio albums, with 2012's Last of a Dyin' Breed its last effort.
