Lynyrd Skynyrd releases live 2014 concert, One More For The Fans

The flow of retro bands - as I call them - continue to deliver amazing music to old fans and new. It still amazes me that bands I listened to as a kid are putting out music in 2015! Just a few weeks ago I was buying the remastered Van Halen albums and now Lynyrd Skynyrd comes a long with a live album.

I've loved their music for a very long time. This past week an album was release from a 2014 concert they headlined along with a terrific assortment of artists all playing Lynyrd Skynyrd songs.

Lynyrd Skynyrd began in the 60's using several different names before adopting their final name in '69. In 1976 part of the campaign to save the Fox Theatre from demolition involved Lynyrd Skynyrd recording their live album, One More From The Road, at the landmark theatre. The title Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More For The Fans, was inspired by that legendary album s title.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More For The Fans In high school, when ever we were being disruptive in the school's library, the head librarian would demand our names. One of us always said, "Leonard Skynyrd".
