Lynyrd Skynyrd

Profile:
Lynyrd Skynyrd (pronounced /ˌlɛnərd ˈskɪnərd/ len-ərd-skin-ərd) is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern hard rock genre during the 1970s. Originally formed in 1964 as the "Noble Five" in Jacksonville, Florida, the band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its driving live performances and signature tunes "Sweet Home Alabama," and "Free Bird." At the peak of their success, three members died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band's most popular incarnation.
Surviving members re-formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with lead singer Ronnie Van Zant's younger brother Johnny as frontman. A version of the band continues to tour and record, with only Gary Rossington of its original members remaining as of 2012. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006.

This band began as a liberal-thinking band with conscious lyrics about drug and alcohol abuse and guncontrol and morged into a redneck right-wing pro-guns and nationalistic pro-american (Red, White and Blue?) circus. The band with Ronnie and the band with Johnny seem like two totally different bands.

Also the new band has too many outside writers and producers working for them. The new band seems rather a brand or a company (with almost all members replaced with new young people) than an actual band.

For me the band stopped existing in 1977 (with the plane-crash). The new band has some okay albums (The Last Rebel springs to mind), but is mostly country-pop with too much Rickey Medlocke and too much Johnny van Zant. They sound more like .38 Special and Survivor than like Free and Rolling Stones like they did in the seventies.

These are just my thoughts.
