Formed in Jacksonville, Florida back in 1964, Lynyrd Skynyrd spent five years touring and changing their line-up before chosing their name. From 1973 until 1977 they released 5 albums that became the most famous Southern Rock albums in history and gave the world hits like “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird”.

On October 20, 1977, their chartered airplane crashed, killing vocalist Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, and backup singer Cassie Gaines and seriously injuring the rest of the band. The group returned in 1987 with Ronnie’s brother Johnny Van Zant that remains until today the group’s vocalist.
