I feel that i have to share this with everyboby,i have followed Skynyrd for over 30 years and have managed to see them a few times in England.

My 11 year old son was weaned on their music and listens to nothing else and plays guitar.
Well here is the short version of a very long story,we have a very good frynd living in Ameria who runs and owns www.ruliens.com who specialise in making custom guitar straps of the highest quality from buffalo hide.She once supplied Gary Rossington a strap that was called Freedom Bird which he uses quite often.

She has just made 8 replica straps which have all been signed by the band and are going to be used to raise money for the freedom concerts and donated to charity.

There were also another 2 made and signed by Gary,RickeyJohnny and Sparky one which hangs proudly in her studio and the other was given to my son as a early birthday present.

Please feel free to look at the website her work is awesome. Hope this link to the photos works

@roadfatigue:
Haven't heard Gary called that in awhile, Road Fatigue

Its better to be hated for who you are, than to be liked for who your not
