@roofdoctor: If you love SKYNYRD as you say.....PLEASE spell their name correctly !!!!

@Saloondawg: band spelling etc lol-I think LS DID release a 45 with that spelling on it at one Time. ( Does anyone remember leroy skyhook besides me ?lol )

As for Roofdoctor- It's fine to come on their Board and voice an opinion pro or con,but Name -Calling, well, to my way of thinking, it is just ignorant,and juvenile. Like Charlie Daniels said in the Song, it's my Life off of the Troubador LP ( yeah, /i said LP,lol )
You can play along, or you can just stay behind..
Yes, this is the We LOVE Lynyrd Skynyrd message board. Hello !! This is the Band's Board,The Music brought us here , and , it keeps us here. we are People who have supported them,for nearly 4 decades now. No one's going to change that.
it's okay if you don't like them,your loss. I guess none of us are getting WHY People think they have to post to the Band's website about it.I betcha LS doesn't Care if you like them or not.

=My Own Sunrise said:These posts that appear on here and slam the band, the album name, the band name, etc... and hold no substance? They're always posted by posters who have just joined. So either they make a name just to comment, or they make new accounts to troll this board.

I make a motion that we have some kind of thing where we can vote a post off or whatnot. I need not need come on here and see some dilweed rip on Gary, Rickey, Johnny...or the album...or even the name of the band. If you seriously have that little of a life that you need to troll things just to get a kick...somethings wrong with you...

Man that is just downright offensive and unacceptable. To me there is only one Lynyrd Skynyrd and that is Ronnie Van Zant. The rest of them were just a band. Without Ronnie the very definition of Skynyrd is missing. The very soul of the band was Ronnie.

And because I have this opinion I am now called a coward? Who are you to make this offensive decision for the rest of us?

@RonniesBand: If you think I am calling you a coward and your offended i am sorry.If you really want to be offended go to the other less popular forum and say something positive about the band.Band members are called whores,unfit mothers, liars,thieves,and many other choice names.You would fit in well there because your so pro Old vs the new.I am not saying that to offend you it's the truth.That forum is MORE FOR DOWNING THE BAND.THIS FORUM IS TO TRY TO BE POSITIVE AND IT IS GETTING OLD WITH FOLKS COMING IN HERE LISTENING TO ALL THE NEGATIVE CRAP.The other room is a better fit for you.Good Luck

Let's try and get along people...

The point of my post isn't to criticize the people[b][/b], as it is the nature of the post. If you believe that Skynyrd is only Ronnie - you are entitled to your opinion. If you, like me, enjoy still hearing the music that Gary, Johnny (who has Ronnie's blood - and is his kid brother), Rickey and all put together, then that's cool too.

The point of my post was to point out that it is getting a bit irritating reading posts/threads where people just come on and slam the band for no reason...whether it be the cd, the group, or its members. If you don't care for them now, so be it. Just do us a favor and don't come on here, make up a screen name and make a negative thread and then leave it at that. The board here is full of people who enjoy[b][/b] Skynyrd for who they are and enjoy talking the music that means so much to myself and them as well.

I do agree that the comment posted above about "negative/skynyrd haters" and the inappropriate statement about people on their computers lacks taste and is out of place.

However, saying that, this is a Skynyrd forum. A place to discuss the greatest band to walk the face of the earth. The band that truly makes you feel something when they play and sing.

How about this....

Instead of making posts that criticize the "new version" band as some call it, why not discuss music and some day's of yore. I'm sure people will be more than happy to discuss that with you as well...however reading posts/threads that just criticize them for no reason is getting old and tiring and honestly needs to stop.

If someone likes only the '77 line-up then more power to ya. Like MOS said, come here and discuss the songs and stories and have a good time.

Dang, I hate to say it I guess, but if an honest fan listens to songs like "Southern Ways" "God and Guns" "Homegrown" "Mississippi Blood" "Honey Hole" "Low Down and Dirty" and disregards them because they are not done by the '77 line-up, man that's just wrong.

LODB kicks butt! I have been hooked since first listening.

Meet me at the Honey Hole!

Skynyrd Flies Forever!

Just got the new Skynyrd album here in the UK. and its excellent,not that i expected anything else,excellent booklet and poster with it as well,all in all well worth the cash.Ok not all the songs are going to reach the heights of the Ronnie Van Zant era but they make a hell of a good stab at it,with the exception of AC/DC theres not many bands that come as close as Skynyrd to recreating the sound and excitement of their original line up.

So Skynyrd as far as i and your UK fans are concerned keep flying that Dixie flag for Southern rock.
