LOOKING FOR A GOOD READ ABOUT THE BAND. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY BOOKS THAT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT THE BAND THAT ARENT FULL OF FICTIONAL TALES BUT ACTUALLY RAW TRUTH AND INTERESTING STORIES. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

PS. ANYONE SEE THE WILKESON JACKET THAT IS FOR SALE UP ON EBAY FOR $2500.00. ITS THE BEADED JACKET THAT WAS ON THE PLANE WHEN IT CRASHED. IF I WASNT A SLAVE TO THE FEDERAL GOVT, I RECKON ID BUY A PIECE OF ROCK HISTORY.

Check out Gene Odom's books. He was Ronnie Van Zant's best childhood friend and was on the plane when it crashed.

Hay,Hay.....

The best book that I can recommend is.....

"LYNYRD SKYNYRD...Remembering the Freebirds of Southern Rock"
by Gene Odems with Frank Dorman

Its available online at Barnes and Noble/Amazom for about 13 bucks or at Gene Odems website for about 20 bucks....
Do your homework!!!!!!!!!!

U.S. navy, I'm guessing by the apparent little sailors in your avatar?
Anyway, I don't have that much $ for collectybles, however cool. :)

Thanks for the tip, Paul - Skynyrd is one of the most underrated classic rock bands. We in Skynyrd Nation know better.

What rock lost in 10/77 was no less than what it lost in 2/59.
