I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO MANY MORE OF THESE, MY HEALTH ISN'T THE GREATEST, THE "IMAGINARY LADY'S" HEALTH IS SLIPPING, SO SERIOUS IS COULD ULTIMATELY LEAD TO BEING WHEELCHAIR BOUND.....

Yup, nothing to add that hasn't said & put so well as Mr Prez & MC...

I also agree with RR... CDB acutally has a person running the fan club!!!! WOW!!! What a concept!!! With each membership you get... Autograph picture, membership card, and 1 meet & greet with the man himself... And THIS IS A TRUE MEET & GREET!!! Not some ass clown giving you all kinds of rules and shyt... You shake the mans hand, tell him you're a fan, get into a little conversation... Then he says "God Bless"... CLASS ACT!!! Not point, snap, NEXT.....
Same with the ZZ Top fc... FREE!!!! Just add your email and you get updates on shows, ticket sales and yes VIP PACKAGES... All that for NO FEE!!!!! Not a big fan of there's but it was the only way to get good seats for the Skynyrd/Top show... And this is common for a lot of other fan clubs... Just add your name to there mailing list and you get updates on shows and stuff... Again NO FEES!!!

It's such a shame because we had such a good core to start with and they just done screwed it up... Lost lots of great Frynds and they don't care... Yet the sad part is WE DO!!!! They don't listen to us... Don't participate... Except for the one "Ghost" posting by Rickey... Or if that was actually him... We find most of our updates through Scoops and other Frynds who have there ear to the ground and can dig stuff up... I'm sure Tom can only post what he's given so his hands are tied and probably gets a lot of shyt thrown his way... But props to him for keep the cage empty from gerbils...

Anyways, it would be sad if they shut it down and basically they are giving us the middle finger by doing so...

I've been blessed to have met soo many new Frynds in person & some just from a phone call or email from this fan club... It's what it's all about!!! I've seen to what extent the diehards go... Playin' bass to the music you love... Opening a Saloon & naming it after the a song from one of your favorite bands... Not to mention ALL the traveling we do... The Summits & planning the next one!!!

We are the ones who stay to the very end of the concert and don't leave in the middle of Free Bird to try & beat the traffic... Yet I bet those are the ones with the backstage passes....

Peace & love to all!!!!
OUT!!!!

I'm not dead, at least not yet, Still Alone, Still Alive, STILL UNBROKEN....

@medwaysimpleman: Very well said Bro.

I ain't Hidin' from nobody, Nobody's hidin' from me

Medway - definitely well said!! I am glad we can still post here, but I know I can stay in touch w/the frynds I've made with or w/o this syte. It's been fun meeting new frynds here.

I sure hope you are still able to enjoy the SMC!! My thoughts will be with you every second wondering what you and Wickey are up to and who you are seeing and yet cursing you both out at the same time for being there (good naturely of course)! Perhaps you an pose the WTF question if you get the chance. I wonder if I'll get to go on one the way things are going.

I just signed up for the ZZ Top FC and will look for more. I am seeing them 11/2 in Rochester and can't wait. Then on 11/16 I'll be seeing Zac Brown Band w/Blackberry Smoke! I guess it's a good thing that I am excited to see other bands and am not just listening to Skynyrd only any more! Lord only knows if I'll have as many chances to see them in the future.

Speaking of seeing L/S - here are some more new dates for 2013!! Scoops on the job!!!

Thursday - 01/17/2013 - Morristown, NJ
Friday - 01/18/2013 - Williamsport, PA
Saturday - 01/19/2013 - Lowell, MA
Saturday - 04/13/2013 - Dothan, AL

For a good listing of dates that Poll Star carries - go here -

Rock on all -

Loco

I recently ordered and recieved the acoustic album "Endangered Species" and it instantly went to my favorite "post crash" release .Likeing it so much,and knowing that my very dear old friend,Brian, loved Skynyrd as much as I do,i had to get one for him also.He recieved it today and responded with the following email to me.I hope he doesent get mad that im shareing this but hes so much better with word than I am.Suffice it to say....I have loved Lynyrd Skynyrd since 1974 when I was a mixed up adolesent 14 year old.Thank God I had Skynyrd.

"Just got the CD today, I coild tell it was a treasure by the way you protectively packaged it and I LOVE it! really reveals the true heart of an extended family of musicians and true friends that in spite of the tragic chronology of events that would have most likely dismantled and splintered any family, group of friends, organization, most famous group of musicians etc etc. The worst of the worst carries on to inspire and unite to an even stonger productive relationship amoungst the rest of the best. The survivors as well as the descendants of the founding fathers are all contributors as much as they are heirs and bebeficiaries; Each in their own way... The Legacy carries on and on and continues to touch the hearts of every generation and every good musician...

In the same way the true meaning of Aloha has been distorted and diluted almost beyond recognition so has the true heart of the Southern States... Lynyrd Skynyrd maintains their integrity and renown for the same purpose Isreal Kamakawiwao'le has perpetuated the true nature of his culture through music.. The Universal Language of Love.. Peace Bro, Mahalo nui loa and A hui hou! (until we meet again) Let's forever keep in touch my dear old friend! -B."
