Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band that got its start in Jacksonville, will perform on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" Monday night (actually, Tuesday morning).
The band will perform songs from its new CD, "Last of a Dyin' Breed." The album debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, the highest charting for a Skynyrd album since 1977.
This won't be the band's first appearance on Ferguson's show. "We’ve done Ferguson before and we look forward to doing it again,” said singer Johnny Van Zant in a news release. “We’re up late at night too. It’s a fun show to watch and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
The show is on CBS at 12:35 a.m.
I wanted to clarify the discussion of the Confederate Flag in our recent CNN interview. Myself, the past members and the present members (that are from the South), are all extremely proud of our heritage and being from the South. We know what the Dixie flag represents and its heritage; the Civil War was fought over States rights.
We still utilize the Confederate (Rebel) flag on stage every night in our shows, we are and always will be a Southern American Rock band, first and foremost. We also utilize the state flag of Alabama and the American flag as well, ‘cause at the end of the day, we are all Americans. I only stated my opinion that the confederate flag, at times, was unfairly being used as a symbol by various hate groups, which is something that we don’t support the flag being used for. The Confederate flag means something more to us, Heritage not Hate…
