Lynyrd Skynyrd In The Studio For Street Survivors 35th Anniversary

09/07/2012
.
(hennemusic) Lynyrd Skynyrd's 1977 album, "Street Survivors," is legendary amongst music fans for many reasons, most notably its collection of songs and the aftermath that followed its release.

The band's fifth studio album was issued on October 17, 1977. Three days later, on October 20, Skynyrd's chartered airplane crashed en route to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, killing the pilot, co-pilot, the group's assistant road-manager and three band members frontman Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines and backup singer Cassie Gaines. Beyond the tragedy, the incident severely injuring most who survived the crash.

The album is the last Skynyrd project recorded by original members Ronnie Van Zant and Allen Collins, and is the sole Skynyrd studio recording with Steve Gaines. Now, In The Studio marks the upcoming 35th anniversary of "Street Survivors" as Skynyrd co-founder Gary Rossington sits down with host Redbeard to discuss its impact, its legacy, and how he's able to cope with the loss of his friends and bandmates some 35 years later. more on this story
