A word from the photographer

ON THIS NIGHT: The Rossington Collins Band

Literally out of the ashes of Lynyrd Skynyrd came the Rossington Collins Band, formed in 1979, just two years after the 1977 plane crash that killed three members of the band. On this night in 1980, I was excited to get the opportunity to photograph four original members of Lynyrd Skynyrd. They were touring in support of the album “Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere”.

Southern Rock

As a big fan of “southern rock”, this was a big night for me having never seen Lynyrd Skynyrd before the plane crash. Interestingly, the opening band was 38 Special with vocalist Donnie Van Zant, younger brother of Skynyrd’s Ronnie Van Zant. The vocalist for Rossington Collins Band was Dale Krantz, former backing vocalist for 38 Special, later married to Gary Rossington just two years later.

Freebird instrumental 

It was awesome getting to see two of the three original guitar players from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allen Collins and Gary Rossington jamming together, playing not only songs from this bands new album, but also a few Lynyrd Skynyrd tracks, including an amazing final song and tribute to those that died, “Freebird” played as an instrumental song with just a mic stand placed front and center stage alone. An amazing concert moment as the tragedy seemed as if it was only yesterday.

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Looking back now, it’s hard to believe that only one original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd is still with us, Gary Rossington, who continues to carry the southern rock flag proudly. Bands like the Allman Brothers, Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot and The Outlaws have all but disappeared with time. I was happy to document in images this night, four original members of one of the greatest southern rock bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd.
