@Ohiodawg: My age has nothing to do with this conversation, by the way. I am beyond my years and I am sure many people agree with me about Skynyrd's place on the list...I know its only a list on VH1 but it's still says something

@ls-skynyrdrocks88: I agree that the caliber of music isn't the same. I still greatly enjoy the newer skynyrd's music though, especially from The Last Rebel and Edge of Forever albums. And it's great that it's Ronnie's brother leading the band.

=ls-skynyrdrocks88 said:It might be due to the fact that skynyrd had such a short career. Just think of what could have been. In just 4 short years they brought us all those classics. Had the plane not went down, I believe they would have made top 5 easy. But then again, it's VH1.

Skynyrd's accomplishments in 4 short years is incredible. I don't know of another band that has produced such great music in such a short period

The accomplishments/song writing of the early band were amazing( and being fortunate enough to see them in the 70's, I knew I was going to love them).... But guess what? This is now.

We all ought to be thanking our lucky charms we have this group that continues to tour, and puts on an incredible show, year after year! ( and some pretty great albums in recent history) Bringing, as "Skynyrdrocks"says new generations of fans together. It's awesome!

"Skynyrdrocks"...the tribute band as you like to refer to them- and in my opinion is semi derogatory ( I know that was a tour title, but they have- as you can see moved on), has been touring for a couple of decades. Please try to cut 'em some slack, and enjoy the music...

VH1 can kiss mine too. I make my own lists. ☺

Well when they only play one post-crash song per show, it's a tribute to the original band. If the setlist was 50/50 or even 60/40, then I would think otherwise. Another way to look at it would be: Out of the 9 people on the stage, only one person actually played with the original band. So you're saying if artimus or ed put a band together with Donnie Van Zant, they could refer to themselves as skynyrd?

HAHAHA nice. After everyone gets their cut, I would think that there wouldn't be much money to go around. It seems a lot of people have their hands in the cookie jar.
