The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
To Re-Air Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Last of a Dyin’ Breed”
Performance on December 27

Tenn. (December 20, 2012) — Some things are so good they need to be
aired twice.  That’s exactly what producers of the The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson thought when they choose to re-air Lynyrd Skynyrd’s performance of “Last of a Dyin’ Breed.”  Fans can tune into CBS on December 27 at 12:35am/11:35pm CT to catch a performance so rockin’ it had to air twice.

The original performance aired on October 1 while the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers were touring in Los Angeles in support of their latest album, Last Of A Dyin’ Breed.  The album release was their highest charting album since 1977, debuting at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums
chart.  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, Lynyrd Skynyrd
remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.  Most recently,
they took the stage at the 2012 American Country Music Awards with co-host Trace Adkins
to perform “What’s Your Name,” bringing an audience full of country
stars to their feet. The legendary rockers also performed for the Discovery Channel’sChopper Live: The Revenge.”

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.
