Hi Guys, 'the shaken Kiwi' from Christchurch, New Zealand here and just joined up with this site.
To be honest i'm just recovering from the shock of discovering that Lynyrd Skynyrd is not only still around but also still touring and it would seem still producing new music- what a blow out!. I haven't heard anything of the band for years, They were my equal favourite band with Grand Funk Railroad ( who i've also just discovered is still touring) and Led Zepplin.
I was of the understanding that all or most of L.S got taken out in a plane crash many years ago but obviously not, and obviously they have been quite podigous in out putting new recordings. I still play their music just about everyday ( well what i have of it). If you want to hear their music here in New Zealand you will extremely rarely here it on radio- only on the 2 classic hits stations we have in the country and even then the only 2 tracks you will ever here is Freebird live version & Sweet Home- nothing else.
Don't suppose there will ever be any possibility that LS will ever do another tour in New Zealand ( even if it's only a one nighter) or Australia- maybe someone close to the band or it's management could ask them ?
Gues i will have to save up my sheckles and travel over to the States to see them cos now i Know they're still alive and kicking i'm detrmined to see them live before i shuffle off this mortal coil or one of these cursed earthquake aftershocks gets me.
Cheers to all & Keep the Faith
