About Lynyrd Skynyrd:
With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and
their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having
over two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers
Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations. 
Led by core members Gary Rossington (guitar), Johnny Van Zant (vocals)
and Rickey Medlock (guitar), Lynyrd Skynyrd continues the tremendous
legacy that began over 35 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida with their
August 21, 2012 release, Last Of A Dyin’ Breed, a legacy that was halted
for a decade after the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members,
including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band
tragically lost Billy Powell, Ean Evans, Allen Collins, Leon Wilkeson
and Huey Thomasson, yet they continue to forge ahead. Rounding out the
line-up is bass player Johnny Colt, an original member of the Black
Crowes who recently joined the band, Mark “Sparky” Matejka on guitar,
Peter Keys on keyboards, and Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase as
the Honkettes backing vocalists.
