CNN INTERVIEW
January 26, 2014 6:26:03 AM UTC Post #1

I MUST SAY AS A HUGE SKYNYRD FAN I AM SADDENED TO SAY I AM NO LONGER A FAN.
YOU GUYS ARE A SELL OUT. HOW DARE YOU BOW DOWN TO THIS PC BULLSHIT AND SAY YOU WILL NOT USE THE BATTLE FLAG ANYMORE. ROSSINGTON SAID IN THE INTERVIEW YOU USED IT TO SHOW YOU WERE FROM THE SOUTH, BUT THAT IT (THE FLAG) HAS BEEN USED BY THE KKK WHICH IS TRUE, BUT THE KKK ALSO USES THE AMERICAN FLAG...ARE YOU GONNA STOP USEING IT TOO? DONT GIVE US THE BULLSHIT ABOUT OFFENDING YOUR FANS EITHER BECAUSE I'VE BEEN TO SEVERAL SHOWS AND WHEN EVER YOU BROUGHT IT OUT THE CROWD WOULD ROAR. YOU MORE THAN ANYONE KNOW WHAT SWEET HOME ALABAMA IS ABOUT. BUT FOR THE FAIR WEATHER FANS ITS A RESPONCE TO NEIL YOUNGS SONG SOUTHERN MAN, WHERE HE MAKES FUN OF THE MEN OF THE SOUTH LIKE ANY LIBERAL DOES AND WANTS TO BLAME EVERYTHING ON THE SOUTHERN PEOPLE. YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO THE SOUTH NOW AND ALL SOUTHERN MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN THAT DIED DEFENDING THEIR COUNTRY FROM YANKEE INVADERS. AND IF YOU TOOK THE TIME TO LEARN HISTORY YOU WOULD KNOW THE SOUTH IS NOT THE ONLY PART OF THE COUNTRY TO HAVE SLAVES. EVERY SHIP BRINGING SLAVES TO THIS COUNTRY FLEW THE STARS AND STRIPES. IN CLOSEING I WILL SAY THIS, YOU CHOSE A GREAT NAME FOR YOUR LATEST ALBUM, TOO BAD I WONT BE ENJOYING IT. BECAUSE AS MUCH AS I ADMIRED YOUR MUSIC ALL THESE YEARS (IM 53) MY LOVE OF COUNTRY AND SACRIFICE OF MY ANCESTORS MEANS WAY MORE TO ME. I HOPE YOU END UP PLAYING IN SMALL FAIRS IN THE NORTH SOMEWHERE.
MIKE BETHUNE TAMPA, FL.

Get over yourself mike. Either you like the music and your fan or move on. This band is not about the flag or people dying over it. Its about the music and keeping it alive. I saw Skynyrd twice last year, both times they have the flag flying. They will always use the flag, but everyone today is so damn sensitive like you that they complain no matter what. They keep it people complain, they ditch it people like you complain!! Its so annoying!!!!! Get over it and like the music or stop writing your dumb posts on here because no one wants to hear it!!

@treblejunkie: FIRST OF ALL YOU DIDNT HURT MY FEELINGS I JUST DONT NEED A FOREIGNER TELLING ME HOW TO FEEL ABOUT THE SOUTH AND OUR HISTORY. WHAT KIND OF HISTORY DOES CANADA HAVE? SECONDLY IM MAN ENOUGH TO PUT MY NAME AND TOWN ON MY POST BECAUSE I STAND BEHIND WHAT I SAY I DONT HIDE BEHIND SOME CUTE LITTLE NICK NAME. AS FOR BEING SKYNYRD FRIENDS FINE BUT JUST DONT SMART OFF TO SOMEONE WHO MAKES A COMMENT ABOUT SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE NO CLUE WHAT IM REFERING TO OR EXPERIENCED. HAVE A NICE DAY.

@paiken8: ANOTHER MOUTH THATS NOT MAN ENOUGH TO USE YOUR NAME HUH. GET OVER YOURSELF, AND GROW A PAIR IF YOU WANT TO TALK SHIT. DONT HIDE BEHIND A KEYBOARD. NOW FOR WHAT IM REFERING TO IS A CNN INTERVIEW WHERE THEY SAID THEY WERE NOT GONNA USE THE FLAG, IF THEY DO USE IT AND CONTINUE THEN ILL GO WATCH THEM BUT IM NOT INTERESTED IN BANDS OR PEOPLE WHO DONT HAVE THE BALLS TO STAND UP FOR THEIR HERITAGE. AS FOR MY DUMB POSTS ON HERE YOU CAN KISS MY ASS. YOU OBVIOUSLY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE REAL SKYNYRDS MUSIC, ALOT OF IT IS ABOUT THE SOUTH, THEY EVEN PLAYED DIXIE SOMETIME. IF YOU ARE GLAD THEY ARENT USEING IT ANYMORE THATS YOUR PRIVILEGE. BUT AS A FAN FOR 35 YEARS WHEN YOU WERE STILL A STAIN ON YOUR DADS PILLOW I DONT LIKE THE CHANGE TO SUIT THE POLITICALLY CORRECT LIBERALS OF TODAY. SO I KNOW YOU SAY YOU DONT WANT TO HEAR IT BUT YOU JUST DID.

i beleive the navaho indians believe the coyote is gods dog .

because they never have become extinct because they adapt they change they survive and do what they do because they been hunted trapped killed starved ran out and been through disasters and urban development but manage to survive

on the other hand the allmighty famous supposably badass wolves DID BECOME EXTINCT and needed help to come back as a wild breed?


maybe much like what Mr Rossington was trying to portray with the new cover and name is much like the Coyote they do what they do to survive in this crazy world

i get it now more than ever wether i agree or disagree with video or album cover or chosen members or ect ect ... Its there band its there control of how they steer it and roll it to keep it going


im glad they got to make music again and put out new songs and bring shows to everyone so they can singalong and have great time is the glass half empty or half full ?
optimous ? pessamistic? or just enjoy the music ? it should be about the music ?
Definetly the old band line ups or there great songs will never be forgotten nor replaced ! But the music can play on wether there is a dixie flag or dont tread on me flag or american flag or daredevel spoon fishing bait flag or nascar or remington or eat hot chili with spice and gassy beans flag or keep on trucking flag or jacksonville jaguars flag or Gibson flag or Peavey flag or any flags are flying or no flag at all . im amazed at how GaryRossington keeps on trucking he awt to get a musician of steel award for being one hard charging guitar player music maker he puts up with a lot of traveling and music buisness stuff where as theres a lot of musicians that would have retired and stopped the live show curcuit a while back.........

life has a begining and a end whats in between is up to us
to the freebirds Leon Allen Billy Steve Hughie Ronnie Ian Cassie music can be so powerful!

Thank You Lynyrd Skynyrd for the music!
