Lynyrd Skynyrd Background
Lynyrd Skynyrd was formed in 1964 by Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins, Bob Burns and Larry Junstrom. The band went through several names, including The Noble Five and One Percent. They eventually settled on Lynyrd Skynyrd, though, as a way to mock one of their physical education teachers, Leonard Skinner. In 1977, six people, including Ronnie Van Zant, Steve and Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, and both the pilot and co-pilot, were killed in a plane crash outside of Gillsburg, Mississippi. While the crash happened just three days after Skynyrd released Street Survivors, which reached No. 5 on the U.S. charts, Skynyrd disbanded rapidly after the tragedy. The hiatus lasted from 1977-1987, although individual members of the band continued to play music throughout. In 1987, the band brought together five original members: Gary Rossington, Billy Powell, Leon Wilkeson Artimus Pyle, and Ed King. Johnny Van Zant, Ronnie's little brother, stepped in as the band's songwriter and lead singer. While the reunited band intended only to play a one-time tribute, they released several albums and launched out on a global tour in 2009. The band released their most recent album in 2012. Today, Lynyrd Skynyrd maintains social channels on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, where followers can keep up with their tour schedule and events.
