Hi Everybody

I have only recently been introduced to the music of LS, and I LOVE IT.!!!!
GOD and GUNS is the most fantastic album, i play it in the car daily and keep finding more and more 'Favourite' tracks.
Although i had heard of the band Lynyrd Skynyrd many years ago, the only track i really ever knew was 'Sweet Home Alabama', but being introduced to God and Guns has changed all that, i will be listening to you guys alot more from now on!!!

Do any members of the band actually participate on this site?? and can anyone tell me who actually writes the songs?? some of those lyrics are beautiful... especially songs like 'Gifted Hands' and 'Unwrite that Song' and 'Still Unbroken'. I love 'Skynyrd Nation' too, its such a 'Feel Good' kinda song.

'Thank you guys, for a fantastic album'

Sincerely yours

Red Rose xx

You won't be disappointed in Skynyrd Nation ! If you only know SHA and the new God & Guns album, check out some of their other masterpieces : I suggest "Vicious Cycle" and "Twenty" to blow you away from the first to the last song. Two other songs I think about right now : "The Last Rebel" and "Outta Hell in my Dodge". There are great live versions of most of these songs on YouTube. Visit also the YouTube Channel of LynSkyn1981, he shares alot of rare Skynyrdvideos with all of us.
About the lyrics, well, to me it feels like Johnny Van Zant write most of it, but it seems that they work all together on the songs, without giving details about who wrote what exactly.
