I just watched a Lynard Skynard performance on VH1 Classic. It was an old BBC show - my guess is from about 1975 - called "The Old Gray Whistle Stop." Perhaps some of you have seen this show?
Anyway, Skynard plays a standard set, and perpares to close with Freebird. Ronnie (Or is it Johnny?) says "This is dedicated to Duane Allman and Berry Oakley of the Allman Brothers. They were definitely Freebirds."
Pretty cool, I thought.
I plan to see what's on this channel more often.

Maybe you should pay tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd by spelling the band name correctly. JAT!

I commented before on this performance bu saying I never new Ronnie was such an orchestrator. He was moving Allen and Gary to the front of the stage, looking over at Leon to make sure the bottom was low. At times he would grab the back of Allen and Gary's shirts and walk them to the front. Allen would look back in a few minutes as if to say "can I come back"

Yes, I've seen Skynyrd more times then I can even remember starting from the very beggining. I think 1973 was the first time I saw them in person. My three favorite groups of all time were Skynyrd, the ABB and the MTB. Little Feat is a close 4th to those three.

Ronnie didn't move around very much on stage and he was always barefoot as he always said he liked to feel the heat of the stage on his feet. This was saying a lot about Ronnie as he was not vein at all as he was a pretty short guy and could have worn huge boots or something, but he could care less, he was always barefoot. He didn't move around much at all, but he was like a maestro on stage as the rest of the guys took all of their cues from Ronnie. He was the true leader for sure. Charlie Daniels always called Ronnie the Mark Twain of R&R.

I believe your guys resident buddy Brent Sibley could share some stories as my memory isn't what it used to be, but I am pretty sure I remember Brent telling me many many moons ago that he saw Skynyrd at a high school dance in Jacksonville when they were known as "One Percent". You may want to ask him about that sometime?
