Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer will serve mouthwatering ribs, brisket, chicken and more. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the high-energy hangout will transform into a late night, high-energy rock club every night with great music and entertainment. Designed to capture the spirit of the band’s “Hell House,” the walls are made of authentic barnyard wood, with concrete floors and aged brick completing the downhome feel of the space. Never-before-seen Lynyrd Skynyrd relics including original album covers, guitars, artwork and photos from the bands more than five-decade-long career will be on display for fans. The staff is part of the action – hot bartenders and servers will be swinging, singing and jumping atop the bars and stage throughout the night -- leading riotous sing-alongs to classic rock songs and Lynyrd Skynyrd favorites.
Lynyrd Skynyrdʼs Gary Rossington is InTheStudio for the 35th anniversary of the ʻliveʼ classic One More From The Road
Dallas, TX- Oct 10, 2011.
North American syndicated Rock radio show InTheStudio:
The Stories Behind Historyʼs Greatest Rock Bands hosts Lynyrd Skynyrd members past and present for the 35th anniversary of their comeback concert classic One More From The Road.
After a mere four studio albums, Lynyrd Skynyrd experienced a significant drop in sales as well as several key personnel changes. But a hastily conceived concert
recording set against the backdrop of Americaʼs bicentennial would result in one of the most successful albums of their career, a double LIVE album featuring the bandʼs enormously lauded performance chops.
“In rockʼnʼroll, back in those days, you matured like a dogʼs life. Every seven years is one year, you know”, guitarist Gary Rossington tells show host Redbeard.
Growing up poor in Jacksonville Florida made for its own
challenges, struggling to become a professional outfit. Rossington points out, “The way we used to change guitar strings, Alan(Collins), Leon(Wilkeson) and I, weʼd always go collect Coke bottles. You get about 10 or 15 Coke bottles and you could buy a new set of strings.”
InTheStudio can be heard on over 50 radio stations across North America. Lynyrd Skynyrd / InTheStudio program will air the week of Oct 10 - 16.

LAS VEGAS -- Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington and Rickey Medlocke from Lynyrd Skynyrd were thrilled with the progress of their new restaurant and bar as they toured Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer at Excalibur Hotel & Casino.
The restaurant slated to celebrate its grand opening in early December will feature the very best Texas barbecue from Kreuz Market, based out of Lockhart, Tex. Van Zant, Rossington and Medlocke were in Las Vegas for their sold-out concert at the M Resort, but made it a point to stop by and see the beginning of their first and only restaurant.
These rock 'n' roll legends were in the best of spirits and found themselves in awe of the restaurant, making mention of it being a friendly kind of cool place that they can't wait to hang out in. Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer will have dancing bartenders and nightly performances for patrons to enjoy. Three of the ladies showed up to give the band members a sneak preview of some of their high-energy moves. Before their performance began, Van Zant shouted, "Free Bird" and then went on to say, "I've always wanted to stand in the audience." As the girls finished their smokin' hot routine, the legendary rockers clapped and whistled giving the ladies a nod for their dancing skills.
After touring the space, the band discussed an upcoming tasting, as well as a few Southern favorites they have planned for the menu. Rossington said, "All this is cool, but the food has gotta be good." The Schmidt family of Kreuz Market has perfected their barbecue for more than 100 years, earning the restaurant the #2 spot in the nation for barbecue by Zagat.
Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer will serve mouthwatering ribs, brisket, chicken and more. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the high-energy hangout will transform into a late night, high-energy rock club every night with great music and entertainment.
