For those who read the recent Mojo magazine article.

Can't blame the guy, that band really sucks.

Yes, you can blame the guy. Lynyrd Skynyrd (RVZ era) were brilliant. LS>RMT. Now, care to tell what did he say about them in the magazine? and why did they even interview a hasbeen like the drummer from Duran Duran (that just simply doesn't make sense):-P

Duran Duran is great, and they prooved to be more than just an 80s teen pop sensation.

Lynard Skynard on the other hand are nothing but a bunch of rednecks who carry their stupid confederate flag like if it was something to be proud of.

Wow, that just tells that you must really be an expert when it comes to the band and its musical offerings and know what you are talking about (as usual).

I don't mind Lynyrd Skynyrd..but I do think that a couple of them made a couple of bad choices...especially choosing flights.


Mm, I think I might have said that in bad taste.

They spell it Lynyrd Skynyrd. They were a great band from the 70's....one of America's best. A great, great, live band. One of the best. They had 3 great albums....and 2 not so great albums. They only got to record for 4 years....and then the crash. The last album...released about a week before the crash...was maybe their best.

I don't know what Roger said.....but if he said that...he's wrong about it. That's ok.....we can all be wrong once in awhile.

Anyone who flies the Confederate flag endorses genocide in my opinion. Neil Young got it right with "Southern Man"

I saw LS open for ZZ Top in 1999 and what a darn shame they're still allowed to tour. They're almost as enlightened as Ted Nugent-- another racist.

Having nothing better to do, I thought I'd type the relevent section of the article out for you...

'Pairing the then silk-pinioned, brutally feminine Queen with the manfully bearded types of Lynyrd Skynard was not an obvious coupling. But Queen played four shows as alternating headliners with Lynyrd Skynard in Germany in 1971. Taylor remembers it well.
"What were they like? They were awful. They were Southern red-necks and they could not believe it when they saw us four caked in make-up and dressed like women. They were outraged, confused and a little frightened, because the four nancy boys were giving them quite a run for their money on-stage. In fact, there were actually people from their record company who would stand in the audience holding up banners that said things like, 'Shit!', 'Queen suck!' Things could be unbelievably petty back then- they paid people to heckle us! God, Lynyrd Skynard. They were arseholes, frankly. When they played that song 'Freebird' it seemed to go on for months. As I remember, they had three lead guitarists. Hmmm (bristling with obvious pride), well, we only seemed to need one. Absolute arseholes. Later on they had that terrible fatal plane crash, didn't they? Shouldn't speak ill of the dead... bollocks to that" '



Voila. Somehow I gather Rog isn't too keen on Lynyrd Skynard...
