"Skynyrd Takes Flight Too Soon"?

I'll throw my .02 cents in here too. Skynyrd puts on a great show, i've seen quite a few other bands and nobody interacts with the crowd as much as JVZ does, even if it's pretty much the same thing year to year. I saw Boston a couple years ago, all they did was get up, play their songs (very well yes) and done, not much if any crowd interaction, it was like listening to a CD and a rather boring show to be honest with no "extended versions" of anything, plus they only played maybe 10 or 15 minutes longer than Skynyrd tops, if that. My only gripe with a Skynyrd show is the medely, i don't understand why they can't play the entire songs, that would even take care of "short show" complaint if you ask me with out puttin much more strain on the band. But reality is, most big name bands only play 90 minutes at best, including encores, so i'm just gonna be thankfull i/we still have the opprotunity to see Skynyrd lyve year after year. They keep comin to town, i'll keep goin to see them!! Skynyrd Nation!

Yall wanna bitch about short shows!! I think tha crowd has somethin ta do with tha length of tha shows sometymes............. Once in ( I think it was 97, I've slept sence then) It was at a route 66 fest. and ther was a bunch of lets be politically correct and say " NON SKYNYRD TYPES, that tried ta start a mosh pit and were throwin chairs and just ruinin tha show............ I saw Gary look at Johnny with this weird look on his face and I think they musta played about 35 min. ............. I never seem tha boys leave tha stage sooo fast. NO oncore or nothin...... They were outta there..... And I didnt blame em...... Tha crowd wasnt tha Skynyrd Nation I know! ! ! !

TURN IT UPPPP ................................................................................... rusty

=LynSkyn1981 said:@Sweet Home AL Sara: I honestly don't think we will see a "Farewell Tour" IF..and i say ..IF Gary decided he would have enough, i see him possibly retiring and giving his guitar duties to someone else. , Theres too much involved with this band, Families, and Fallen band members estates and ETC. , Its more than just a Southern Band from the south now. Heck people said the band would stop when Leon died, but nope, then Billy, and nope. as far as Gary retiring, i can't see it happening. He made a promise that he would keep playing until he goes to Heaven, and That statement from Gary, I truly believe!

I can't see any possibility of Gary deciding to retire and have LS carry on without him.
Nope, he IS the "Last Rebel" and if ever he calls it quits with Skynyrd, that would be that, in my opinion.
