Well you would think that US, Skynyrd Nation would get a little taste of the sessions and goings on but who are we kidding... We ain't getting nothing!!!

Loco (we should call her "Snoops"), finds a "fan pack" for the new album.. Yet we have nothing..

Even the August 16th CT show isn't even listed on the "Tour" site, yet the tix's are already on sale..

Roadrunner Sux's Azz!!! That was a bad move by Skynyrd to go to them... Company is pretty much going out of business... They treated us THE FANS like crap, when you'd try and reach out to them..
Since April the ceo stepped down after only being on the job for 17 month's.. They let go 36 employees worldwide...

I would like to think they DO care about us.. We had a posting a few back from RM... I would like to think he would sense the frustration/pizzed off fans are and do something.. The state of the economy, it ain't easy to pack up the horses and go to shows when you putting up a few hundred $$ for 75 minute show... It's getting more and more difficult to do it, so they shouldn't pizz off the base, foundation of Skynyrd Nation and show us some LOVE....

They better not take $$ out of my account to renew it... It sure as hell ain't worth it...

@medway.....Re the economy....IT SUCKS.............

For example we paid BIG BUCKS for our Skynyrd show in Montreal $$$150.00 a tic...

never paid over a hundred before...BUT bite the bullet because we don't have to "roadtrip" and pay all the other expences this tyme....

This past little while I have lost more $$$$$$ every week on the stock market,
than I pay in taxes on my weekly paycheck!!!!!!!!!!

BTW....last year when I visited The Prez and Nuthingfancy in Oregon,

I saw sign of just how bad the ecomony is...

...............................2 FOR 1 at McDonalds......

Have a great day my frynd...I agree with all that you wrote...Something has to improve.....

I was just thinking that this place has gotten so depressing it was making the Gerbil Wars feel like the Good Old Days. Now that is pathetic! Oh well...I made myself smile....

@medwaysimpleman:

They can and the will renew your account automatically. Change your account number is all you can do to avoid it.
See my name in blue? Now you know why.

Maybe we should all chip in a couple bucks and create a account that we can share, that'll teach them.

jam, yeah the vibe is kind of a bummer.. But over the past couple of years we've seen good Frynds leave the site for different reasons. The bottom line is that the fan club doesn't seem to care about the ones who keep it going... No perks.. recycled swag.. no vip packages.. yet when it's time to renew your fc membership, they reach in and help themselves.. Not cool and I don't know of any other fc that does that..

rf, I LOVE you new avatar!!! I can hear you screaming.... YEEE HAWWWW!!!!! And Waylon playing in the background..

When you figure out how we can "share" count me in... lol...

I agree w/you all!! Bummer! Can't believe we have to do all the work! It's lucky I listen to the UK channel and subscribe to the magazine. It is a pricey option, but worth it IMHO.

We may need to find a new home soon at this rate!!! So someone better send out some scouts!!!! And don't forget to send the smoke signals when you find a good space!! We'll all come ridin' in.

Oh by the way- last night I had round 2 of my summer concert schedule of 3 blues shows and 2 rock. Last night it was Bonnie Raitt in Syracuse, NY. I've posted my pics on my face book page (Samantha Jean Johnson in Potsdam, NY) and also on my picasa page at https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/myphotos

And if you want to see some pics from one of this past weekends L/S shows in the UK, and are on FaceBook - check out Norm Burn's page. He's from Newcastle Upon Tyne. He said he would hopefully post them this weekend. H_7 - it will be an appetizer for our show on 7/6.

Hey we need a song of the day and since we all are doing so much dang work - how about "Workin" - bang that gavel Prez or Mc! It's been so long I forget who does bang the gavel!!

Easy, we get one of us to be the host and register with a loadable credit card. We all chip in and use the account. All we have to do for tickets is change the mailing addy on the ticket form and mail the account holder the funds to load the card with. Just an idea.
