Beacon show had it's moments but overall I'd give it a C.

Couple things...first, when you are in NYC you don't have to constantly tell NYC how much you love them, and call out to them, and all that other BS that probably works in Birmingham. We know your glad to be in NYC and one mention is enough.

Second, if I was deaf and someone brought me in blindfolded and then took the blindfold off I'd have sworn I'd been walked into a heavy metal concert. We are there to hear the music, all the EXCESSIVE jumping around and gesturing and winking and nodding and guitar pointing and other BS just takes away from the music. You guys look like idiots out there, sorry. Take the lead from your man Gary Rossington (and/or the ABB), calm down out there! It's not a sprint fella's!!

Nice job on Tuesday's Gone, and a number of others ;-)

Oh, next time at the Beacon turn down the treble and add some bass/mid, sounded tinny.

Hey Tom
Having been a Fan since before the crash..whew,it amazed me that for such an awesome group and Loyal following we never had a decent site to blog,chat,post on.I must admit from using this for two days you have " got that right ".Definately a great place for young and old fans to interact,learn and share.I know this was a long time in coming and took alot of effort....Thank You, to you and your team for getting Skynyrd and the fans the proper kind of site such an ICON deserves.
Happy Trails

One other thing, if you're going to charge $115 you need to provide more than 84 minutes of music...make it a couple hours at a minimum.

FYI, the C composed of: B music, D- stage antics, D+ sound, F show length.

Hey, what constitutes an "insider"?!?

See, Sara, problem is, "she", didn't say that, in the movie, that is ;-)

(unless there is another movie, in which, "she", said that)

Alright, fine. But for the record the movie was Cool Hand Luke, in case you want to watch it again. An all time classic... The dude who was the prison camp boss spoke the line.

Now, back to the Beacon show, were any of you all there?

I just joined this site tonight but have been a big Fan since the 70's. I watched the band on Huckabee tonight and they rocked!! I didn't think I'd be posting this wuick--but I have to say somethin' about an earlier post.
