A stellar cast of classic rock and southern rock musicians including past and present members of Lynyrd Skynyrd themselves pay tribute to one of the greatest rock bands to ever conquer the world! The all-star line-up on this album includes former Lynyrd Skynyrd members Ed King and Artimus Pyle, as well as the original Honkettes revisiting Double Trouble. Current Lynyrd Skynyrd lead guitarist and primary songwriter Rickey Medlocke who joined the band in 1996 also joins his previous band, Blackfoot, for their rendition of Seasons, a ballad he originally wrote for Skynyrd. Originally formed in 1964 as the Noble Five in Jacksonville, Florida, Lynyrd Skynyrd are acknowledged for popularizing Southern Rock. The band rose to worldwide recognition thanks to its driving live performances featuring raging guitars and layers of soaring vocals, in combination with a number of humongous hits such as Sweet Home Alabama, Saturday Night Special, and Free Bird. In 1977, at the pinnacle of their success, three members died in an airplane crash, abruptly wiping out the band s classic and most popular line-up. The survivors re-grouped in 1987 for a reunion tour, with deceased lead singer Ronnie Van Zant s younger brother Johnny fronting the outfit, and they haven t looked back since. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in March 2006.
