It seems to me that is it YOU who is the new fan for not understanding Road Fatigue was referring to the idiot that is trying to sell an "original" tour shirt with the band members names butchered!

No crew member would EVER wear something like that-or be allowed to!

Road Fatigue not a fan? Lets put it this way.....have YOU seen the ORIGINAL band?? He has twice. Have you seen the current band more than once? He has over 100 times. Do you own other memorabilia besides this jacket? He has rooms overflowing with stuff.

Oh, how do I know that??? Because we met, fell in love, got married at a Skynyrd show in Vegas, and all BECAUSE OF THIS BAND.

Now..shut your piehole.


Which 2 did he see? I caught the original line up 5 times that I can remember. Cow Palace/SF '73 opening for The Who, Chico Stae Univ. '74 opening for Tucker(got hammered with Ronnie @ an after-party), Winterland/SF '74 w/ Tucker again, Oakland/Day On The Green '75(Ronnie wore a Neal Young T-shirt), Concord Pavillion/Ca. Sept. '77(little did we know it was the last one). J Dawg

@Ohiodawg: I will have to have him post when he gets home. I know one or both were here in San Diego. You saw the best shows-those are memories that will never leave you. I feel blessed to have been able to catch the band in April of 77 in Dayton Ohio, but that show was nowhere near the caliber of the Cow Palace or Day on the Green!

What you do for yourself dies with you, but what you do for others can live on forever.

Growing up in San Francisco-- Day on the Greens were awesome!!! I didnt go to the show in '75 but I did go in '77. I had just graduated high school. It was amazing. Remember the orange juice containers? We thought we were slick, trying to sneak in vodka! How about the toliet paper, from the top of the stadium?
Such fun! Hanging out all day! I think I was sunburn for 2 or 3 weeks. REALLY::
Peter Frampton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Santana, AND the Outlaws. Frampton was riding the success of his Frampton Comes Alive album. (Baby I love your way…)
After that, for years I went to many DOTG shows. They were always a blast.

I had a t-shirt back in the 80's with that logo. Bought it at Spencer's Gifts in Colorado.

Skynyrd Flies Forever!

DOG'S were like a season of Survivor with drugs & alcohol thrown in. The live version of Freebird in Freebird The Movie is from the day you went. Were you there on the 4th of July? J Dawg

To answer your question, Leon was the original bass player & Artimus took over after Bob Burns left the band on drums. Del is kin of Gary Rossington while Carol sang back up vocals during there 1987 tribute tour (and can be seen on there 1987 tribute tour video) with Dale Krantz Rossington who also happens to be Gary's wife.

Today I got my Lynyrd Skynyrd jacket. And now it will go with all my other L.S. stuff as my collection continues to build up steam. And no, I won't where it. I tried it on just to see how it fits, but now its time to put it on a hanger. I'll add it to my Star Wars shirts, & my Wonder Woman shirts & all my other things I have in my on going collection. That's what I do. I collect things. Shirts, jackets, glasses, wall clocks, even a Wonder Woman bath robe & cooking apron. Plus I have the complete Wonder Woman series on dvd & I also have all of the Skynyrd on dvd, cd & so on. I even have a live show they did on cassette which was never released to the public. This radio station back home once a week would play a live concert from all the big bands of the day. Fleetwood Mac, the Stones, the Outlaws, & of course Skynyrd. Well quick thinking me, put a tape in my stereo & BOOM!!! I got a real keepsake. A full concert never released to the public. And this is of the "Original" Band with the great one, Ronnie Van Zant on vocals. And much like all my other things, this to is not for sale. Nor is or ever will be, my autographs of all the baseball players I have, including the ultimate keeper of all keepers which was passed down to me from my family & that autograph is? Well, Babe Ruth of course. Plus I have Ty Cobb, Walter "Big Train" Johnson & so many more including Willie Mays of whom I met at an autograph show & he was real nice to. Just a pleasant feller to chat baseball with. But my Skynyrd & my baseball collection will never be up for grabs.That there, will ALWAYS stay with me. Yea I could sell my Babe Ruth autograph & probably by me a whole state if I wanted to, but my collection isn't for sale & its not about the money either.Its all about the love I have for Skynyrd & for baseball. Nope. It'll ALWAYS remain with me. I busted my ass over the years to build all this up. I've been to a ton of Skynyrd shows including 5 last summer. But then again having a cousin who's a pilot & owns several planes has a lot to do with that. Flying's his life, like Skynyrd & baseball's mine.And I always said to that, baseball's my life my wife. We're a match made in heaven.
