Hey

New on Here. I love Lynryd Skynrd, possible my favourite band ever but have really only discovered them recently. They are the go to band in the car or on the I Pod.

What other similar bands are there you can suggest i might enjoy listening too? I like the Southern Rock Influence and often listen to CCR as well.

Thanks

DF

Well to start off with why not the recent cd "God & Guns". Then work your way back.

Then to stay in the Southern Rock category....
38 Special, Molly Hatchet, MTB, CDB, Allman Bros, ZZ Top, The Outlaw's, Rossington Collins.... That should get you started.... I'm sure you'll get some more...

And your best bet is Itunes for finding some of this, because Wal Mart, Best But etc.... have limited selections.

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

I am new on here too, but have been a huge Skynyrd fan for 30 years. I love southern rock and classic rock. I do not always "classify" southern rock the same way others do. To me, some of it is just rock or classic rock. I like Skynyrd of course, Charlie Daniels, Marshall Tucker Band, Hank Williams Jr., Molly Hatchet, CCR, Crosby Still and Nash (and Young), Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Van Zant which is a duo of Johnny and Donnie Van Zant. Ironically, I am not a big .38 Special fan. I have tried because of the RVZ connection, but am not a big fan. They are only ok in my book. But, there is so much great old and new Skynyrd music why would you need to listen to anything else? :)

Definitely the Allman Brothers. Skynyrd's definitely my #1, but the bros are #2. Also nobody's mentioned them but the Doobies are awesome too...saw them and Skynyrd together a couple years ago and it was an awesome show.

For a "newer" band.........check out Blackberry Smoke!!!! They are going to carry the torch on for Southern Rock music.

Ain't nothing sweeter than a Southern girl!
