Lynyrd Skynyrd are the ultimate Southern Rock band. Their signature three guitar attack coupled to superb songwriting and massive on stage charisma has rightfully earned them a reputation as one of the greatest live bands of all time.
The original band infamously had their career cut short by a disastrous plane crash in 1977 which took the lives of three members plus two of their road crew and seriously injured several others. In 1987 the surviving members reformed the band with Johnny Van Zant taking the place of his brother Ronnie Van Zant. This concert from 1996 captures the band on top form at Rockpalast's Loreley Festival on 23 June 1996.
Johnny Van Zant - Vocals, Gary Rossington - Guitar, Rickey Medlocke - Guitar And Backing Vocals, Hughie Thomasson - Guitar, Billy Powell - Keyboards, Leon Wilkeson - Bass And Backing Vocals, Owen Hale - Drums, Dale Krantz-Rossington - Backing Vocals, Carol Chase - Backing Vocals
