Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington Releases Solo Album


(Radio.com) It has been 36 years since Lynyrd Skynyrd founding member Gary Rossington released music outside of the band. But Rossington and his wife Dale Krantz-Rossington, recorded Take it On Faith, which was released today.

"It was from the fans all these years talking about the Rossington Collins Band days, and would I ever do anything like that with Dale," Rossington tells Billboard. Gary launched the Rossington Collins Band with fellow Skynyrd guitarist Allen Collins and other Skynyrd members in 1979, two years after the fatal plane crash that halted the band for a decade. The group produced two albums.

"After awhile of those meet-and-greets of people asking, we had a little time off a few years back, so we went in and did it and it was just spontaneous, quick," Rossington explains. "It only took a couple weeks of recording and a few overdubs, and we were done. It was such a fun thing to do, and our fans were asking us and some of the guys in the band even mentioned, 'Why don't you guys do something?' So we went in and did it, and that was it."
