He died on Monday, and Florida paid tribute to him between the third and fourth quarter of the LSU game on Saturday, singing “I Wont Back Down”.

Take a look at the great scene inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium:

I am a brazilian journalist, a classic rock and heavy metal lover. Music has always been part of my life, helped me through tough moments and was with me to celebrate the good ones. When i became a journalist i knew i wanted to write about my passions. After college I did a postgraduate degree in digital communication. This has helped me to make the website better and bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
