(Sub) InTheStudio.net are celebrating Christmas with a very special archive moment from Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington, Johnny Van Zant, Rick Medlocke and the late Outlaws /Skynyrd guitarist Hughie Thomasson.

The southern rock legends discuss their Christmas Time Again album, where they talk about the songs "Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin' ", "Mama's Song" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's cover of Chuck Berry's "Run Rudolph Run".

The bittersweet personal comments from Johnny Van Zant and Rick Medlocke about the losses of their respective mothers is particularly touching when discussing the inspiration for the holiday ballad "Mama's Song". And the fact that Thomasson, bass player Leon Wilkeson and piano player Billy Powell all perform on these songs and are now all deceased, adds additional poignancy to the segment. The Medium Rare series is exclusive streamable online-only interview content found on the InTheStudio homepage.
