Quite simply, in my opinion, the best debut album by any band of all time.It's also my favourite Skynyrd album, I have worn out 5 copies over the years; the opening bars of Freebird still send a shiver up my spine.

I consider myself one of the luckiest men from the South.Why you ask? I was only 13 years old when 'Pronouced' was released and as luck would have it my 18 year old cousin took me and his younger brother with him to our very first concert (in Columbia,SC) a few months later. Skynyrd was'nt the headliners but they made such an impression on me,I don't even remember who was. I'm 50 now and the memory ain't what it used to be. Over the next 4 years I was lucky enough to see them about 5 or 6 more times in such places as Charlotte,Asheville and Greensboro,NC then again in Columbia,SC. But the greatest of all was seeing the last show they did in Greeneville,SC the day before the plane crash. I live about 50 miles from there. The old auditorium was demolished a few years ago to make room for a bigger arena,but they did'nt demolish my memory of THAT night!! American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. At least on October 19,1977 anyway.

Every time I get the blues, I know all I gotta do is put on some Skynyrd and I know I'll feel better. Thank you for impacting my life in a way I can't explain and in a way nothing else can.

It is nearing the end of summer here in Wisconsin, Madison to be exact. Madison is a college town that boasts a lot of beer drinking and hell raising fun...and most recently, too much heroin on the run...
Last week while I was out at the the Tenney Park Locks, playing tennis, enjoying the summer sun, I noticed a boat passing on the waterways of Lake Mendota with a huge, an I mean huge, banner flag of the old confederate flag...cross bars and stars being paraded as the boat motored its way past the lake goers sitting from their deck chairs fishing. For some strange reason, I thought about Ronnie Van Zant and Skynyrd's T-shirts I bought from my last concert. The T-shirt had the confederate flag bars and the skull bones. My T-shirt was a beautiful carribean blue until it faded out to a light teal blue after so many washings. It was the T-shirt that I wore nearly a whole year to mourn the passing of Ronnie Van Zant. And, as memory would have it, just this week as I was driving down east Johnson St here in Madison, WI, I saw a hip looking dude wearing a rounded, black brim-rolled hat, the type of black, brim-rolled hat that Ronnie Van Zant signified, and boom, I remembered the album cover... Van Zant wasn't wearing his signature black brim-roll hat on the cover of "Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd." Listen, we didn't hear of any rumours about the rain or lightning regarding the album cover, but we did hear, and we have heard one of the best Skynyrd albums produced since the Confederate--rain or shine!

I used to live in Dubai United Arab Emirates for 2 years. I can remember being on the roof of my building where the pool was and jamminng out to my 3 box set. One of the songs that stood out to me was "All I can do is write about it" , "Comin Home", "Am I losing" (I would cry as I was so home sick) then dance to "Georgia Peaches" Swamp music" and "I ain't the one". My Mom says I am Ronnies illegitamate child-- all I know your music is part of who I am.
I am truly proud to be one of your greatest fans.

I remember Lynyrd Skynyrd's performance at the Milwaukee Arena way back in 1976. It was a spectacular show with Ronnie van Zant bringing the crowd and the band together. Ronnie van Zant performed barefoot on stage with some of the best southern vocal chords ever played on his band's guitars. The crowd at the Arena became so mesmerized van Zant told us to ..." hey, y'all are great...take it easy... I ain't worked up a sweat, yet...!" And, during one of their songs (Saturday Night Special, I think) van Zant called out his "mules" to play for all the "rock 'n rollers" in the house! Well, "great Lord of mercies" we really had a time with the band, to say the least, with those suthern guitars, pianos, and Ronnie van Zant serenading sections of the Arena crowd.
When he came over and looked up at me during this sectacular performance, and began singing to me--I was close enough to the stage to look directly in his eyes--and I knew that would be the last time I'd ever see him perform.

It was about 4 am when I got the news about the plane crash. I was listening to
WQFM radio in Milwaukee (Marty, the D.J. with the perfect white teeth and manners!). As I listened to the details, I imagined the plane crash i n a clay dirt covered area somewhere in the southeast...from the reports. It was one of the saddest mornings of my life when I remembered Ronnie van Zant performing barefoot at the Milwaukee Arena with Skynyrd..."Tuesday's Gone With Wind."
A performance I'll never forget and a suthern band whose courage to record and perform their own authentic style was incredible. I can still see Ronnie's eternal eyes and those naturally beautiful bare feet as he and the band gave us a show that was so wonderfully powerful...
