Ronnie bare footed...

I had heard Ronnie liked to feel the stage burn. So was it true he was always barefooted? God what a loss, that boy is gone. Wish I could have met him.

In the early days of the band you can find photos of him performing with his shoes on. It was later on like 1976 and 1977 where you can find him performing without shoes.

There is a story about the band performing the song Gimme Back My Bullets and fans were actually doing that- throwing every sort of bullet you can imagine up on stage and Ronnie being barefoot had a problem trying to avoid stepping on all those bullets. I think they stopped performing the song for this reason. It became more of a hazard to them.

www.skynyrdfrynds.proboards.com is where I read this story.

Hey Jenny, can you rotate your photo around so we can get a better look without breaking our necks?
