Lynyrd Skynyrd hasn't spoken since 1977.One member does not make a whole band.Wake up.

I was referring to the original post and how he was wondering why Ed is not mentioned on this site. RE-read his original post and my response.

I like Ed and his work with the band, those first three albums and the early material recorded in Muscle Shoals is the best Lynyrd Skynyrd has ever been.

I don't need to re-read your post.You said Lynyrd Skynyrd had spoken, as if the band still existed.The band has been gone for a long time.These traveling musicians playing now are not Skynyrd.With the exception of Gary.He doesn't constitute a whole band

again I was referring only to why Ed and the band separated whether it be from the grind of touring or disagreements about the business side along the way, and why he is not given his due on this site.
...that I don't know and can only say that there were things going on that we don't know behind the scenes, and with the business matters.

The pre-crash Lynyrd Skynyrd is, and always will be, deep in our hearts. I feel your passion because I have it too and I can't argue with a fellow Lynyrd Skynyrd fan when it comes to the original line-up; I am not on firm ground and you are.

My favorite in the band besides Ronnie was always Gary and he is carrying the torch for those who can't, he is playing guitar so Ronnie's little brother can sing the songs he wrote, and hopefully bring in new fans who will go back and listen the the real Lynyrd Skynyrd that you and I love.

....that all being said "I love me some Ed King." the Sweet Home Alabama riff is iconic in mega proportions to the point where it propelled Skynyrd forward into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

if you don't like them,that's fine. you are entitled to your opinion. But why post that on their board? Seems like a valid question to me...we SUPPORT Lynyrd Skynyrd here..perhaps you don't understand that.
this is why you don't see former members' threads on the board. they tend to -pardon the expression-"go South".

Someone should tell the story on how Ed got his hand broken, and by whom.

It's almost as bad as the Artimus drum cymbal story.

I'm Back You Bastards!
