    It's a couple of days late, but RIP Southern Rock.

    Oct. 20 1977 when Ronnie Van Zant (along with Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines) died in the plane crash.

    Absolutely an incredible American band.

    I could listen to any one of their albums from start to end, over and over again (and have).

    I'm not sure any band came right out of the chute as polished as they did on their first album. A remarkable achievement. Maybe the greatest debut album in rock history.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd had a pretty good debut album too.
  4. Nice band, but I prefer The Allman Brothers.

    Loved those guys, "Absolutely Sweet Marie" has to be among the greatest Dylan covers ever. I could listen to "Broken Whiskey Glass" and "My Kingdom For A car" 10 times a day.

    Huge Skynyrd fan and my fave album is still probably their live one, One More From The Road, one of the great live albums of all time. Great stuff on there like "Gimme Three Steps", "T For Texas", even the beat-it-to-death version of "Free Bird".

    My late cousin saw them open for The Who on the Quadrophenia tour and said they blew Townshend and company off the stage. He was still shaking his head 20 years later that any band on the planet could do that to The Who.

    Oh yeah, I dig the Allmans too.

    No love for Wet Willie?
