LEGENDARY SOUTHERN ROCKERS LYNYRD SKYNYRD JOIN SRF 2012 LINE UP
Lynyrd Skynyrd have not been in Sweden since they headlined Sweden Rock in the year 2000, and this summer’s concert will be their only in Sweden this year.
They’re not just the world’s biggest Southern Rock act, they’re the ones who all but singlehandedly defined the genre. Since their debut in 1973, Lynyrd Skynyrd have produced some of the most immortal songs in rock, like ”Sweet home Alabama”, ”Freebird”, ”Saturday night special” and ”Gimme back my bullets”. Sadly, their name is also associated with tragedy. A plane crash in 1977 claimed the lives of several members and triggered a ten-year hiatus, and since then yet more members of Lynyrd Skynyrd have passed away. However, the band itself lives on, prospers and keeps making excellent music (like their most recent album, ”God & guns” from 2009), with indefatigable original guitarist Gary Rossington and longtime singer Johnny Van Zant at the frontline.
