@LynSkyn1981: They did a terrific job. I also saw LS in Tampa on June 27 this year. All three shows were spectacular. They sound like a well oiled machine. I mean, Billy was Billy, but them's some big shoes to fill. That said, I'm very, very impressed with Peter. And Robert also has a graceful way of just grooving, almost gliding around the stage. He's one cool dude far as I'm concerned! Game on. Still, I gotta wonder what rhythms Ed King has been working on over the years. Hell, why not a 4th guitar! Hell, how about a little Doobie Brother style drum action and add Artimus back into the equation? Don't replace anyone, just supersize the thing. Guess I'm just a dreamer....besides, WWRVZD? Doubt Ronnie would approve.

Hey, you know that Barrylee Harwood is about to release his Heartstrings CD. Damn, he was so good back in the day.

I knew I'd catch some heat for that... Yes, I know the band is very tight and my compliments abound. I wouldn't change a thing, not that anyone would ask my opinion.

Sometimes you find yourself dreaming of the original line-up and wonder what would have been if only not for that fateful flight. Some really good material came out of RCB and the Collins Band was brilliant! But, you know what I'm saying.

I think most Skynyrd fans who maintained their enthusiasm once the band reunited have some days when only the Ronnie era songs will do, and then others when only the Johnny era will do. But the true fan will more often than not mix songs from all points and find exhilaration throughout. Though, I must admit that I might have to slip in a Blackfoot song here and again.

Wouldn't it be kinda cool if the Skynyrd concert included the occasional Blackfoot or RCB track? Forget about an opening act, just play longer and let LS keep all the extra profits.

Skynyrd Forever, Forever Skynyrd!
