What song is it you wanna hear ?

Oh hell fucking yeah! Skynyrd fucking rocks live. If you have never seen Lynyrd Skynyrd live then you have to because they know how to put on a good show! I have been listening to Skynyrd since I shot out of the womb. I had a cassette tape given to me when I was 8. Practically my whole family listens to these guys and owns multiple albums.

I can still listen to any of their songs and still love the song as if it was the first time I heard it. So everybody lets sing along. This is a video that was taken on July 4, 1977. It gave me some chills know that the plane crash that killed Ronnie VanZant, Steve Gaines, and his sister Cassie (who was one of the backing vocals) was October 17, 1977.

This is for you guys. So What song is it you wanna hear ?


With the exception of Shooter Jennings (who was really good) the rest of the acts that I saw this weekend sucked ass (3 Doors Down and Fiona). But I am not going to dwell on them instead lets enjoy Skynyrd.

Stickham absolutely rocks! I love it,..500MB free space comes with it too for songs, vids & pics! You'd like it I bet,..I think its grand! The only other social thing I use like it (other than MSN & Gtalk) is IMVU - I just made a huge post about it actually. Stickham has bands on it too - like myspace & sometimes you see live shows free! check it out - its a blast!

Thanks for putting this up...F*cking awesome way to start a day at the office. Gotta say, I've been an LS fan since I understood what music was, too.
