Band to open Lynyrd Skynyrd-themed Vegas eatery

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The band famous for hits including "Freebird" and "Sweet Home Alabama" is planning to open up a restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/oaSMO2 ) the Southern rockers of Lynyrd Skynyrd have licensed their brand for a barbecue and beer restaurant in the Excalibur Hotel Casino

Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer is set to open in December. It will feature Texas-style barbecue for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and serve as a nightclub after hours.

Band members are planning to play occasional shows in addition to music from cover bands. Bartenders will lead customers in sing-alongs.

The newspaper reports the eatery is modeled after the tin shack dubbed "Hell House" where Lynyrd Skynyrd band members lived and practiced in their early years.

Saw Skynyrd friday and saturday nights in Wendover. Awesome show. And what a great arena. With only a thousand seats every seat in the house is a great one. The first night I was 5th row on the floor, the second night I was the back row and each performance was killer. Thank you guys for keeping the music alive!

Saw you guys on Friday the 23rd in Wendover, NV. KILLER show. Sadly I didn't know about you guys til I met my husband 23 yrs ago and dont really think we have gone more than a day without hearing a Skynyrd song in our home in the last 23yrs!! Our kids are fans as well and honestly, you guys rock it like no others! Blessings and thanks for a KICK ASS show!!!

love from the Langstons in Winnemucca Nv!

HiHi, I really, as every body, like your Sweet home Alabama song. I want to make a version of it with my group. We are a small group in Madrid. I want to know if is possible to make a cover of it , but changing the lyrics, since when I sing it I feel to sing it with a different lyric. Is this possible? I don't want to do anything that is not legal. Thanks for the information. Gloria.
