Message : I hadn't been a through and through Skynyrd fan until I got married in 1990 to a lifelong Skynyrd
fanatic. Since then, I've become worse than he is. They were a great AMERICAN ROCK group, that happened
to be from the south. The new Skynyrd is good & getting better, but Ronnie can't be replaced.

was a cold beer in my hand. We lost one of the greatest southern fried rock bands of all time. They never got
the chance to peak and show their true musical genius. They will never be forgotten or stopped being listened
to. Timeless music that will outlive me and many others. REST IN PEACE...RONNIE, STEVE & CASSIE, GONE

Message : The greatest band ever, I did not ever manage to see them live, but I can understand how white hot
they were. Ronnie Van Zant was my hero for years but his brother has done a remarkable job as his
replacement. I play their music everyday and I still get upset thinking of the crash. I like Ronnie follow The
Green Bay Packers.
Keep flying FREEBIRDS !!!!

I got out of the service in the early 70's. Was fortunate to get to seem them preform in 74. No telling how many
concerts I've been to over the years, but there's nothing like the real thing.

Message : I have listened to Lynyrd Skynyrd since their first album and couldn't wait for their next back then. I
have played guitar since 1973, and know every song they've written and performed. I miss them terribly. I
believe the reason music in of itself has gone in the dumpster is because of their demise. They could no longer
contribute to music and therefore, along with a new generation of kids who were rebelling, the music went away
and was replaced with the garbage we hear today. There are still some good musicians left, but Skynyrd lead
the way. I recently bought a mint condition copy of their last album with the flames in back. I had it back in 77',
but my ex got it the divorce and she sold it. Still crying over that, but I got this copy and am happy again. I listen
and play their music every day, and will never forget their contributions to music and the South. They will be
forever in my heart until the day I get to meet Ronnie and jam with him.

In those days I slept with the radio on. I've never forgotten waking up hearing the news of the plane crash.
I've prayed for them since getting saved in 1980 and have been pleased to hear that some have also become
Christians. Still praying.

Message : I was a Lynyrd Skynyrd fan, back in the day. I was born the same year as recently deceased (may
God rest his soul) Billy Powell. In recent years, I have had the loving privilege of spending a lot of time with my
wonderful granson. When he was in high school, I would pick him up and on any given afternoon you could find
us driving down the road, singing "Simple Man," at the tops of our lungs. You see, my grandson was a young
man, with an "old soul."
Before being deployed to Iraq, he made a CD for his Grandma, with all of Skynyrd's best. I would listen to that
CD EVERYDAY. God and Lynyrd Skynyrd returned him safely to his loving grandma. WE LOVE LYNYRD
SKYNYRD! And God Bless them all! RIP Billy Powell!

Message : I'm only 20 years old but I'm glad to Be A Rock & Roller. When I Was Eight Years Old I Became a
Skynyrd Fan And To This Day I Consider My Self A Skynyrd Freak Everyday I Wake Up 2 Skynyrd And End My
Day With Skynyrd. I've Seen Alot Of Skynyrd Videos. I've Researched Alot On Skynryd and Have Been To The
Siting Of The Plane Crash.I Am A Skynyrd Historian Everyone Of My Friends Say That I Just Might Become A
Rock Historian. But Yet I Do Own Records Of Skynyrd From The 70's That I Had Gotten From My Father And
I've Been To Alot Of Concerts. RIP RONNIE VAN ZANT STEVE GAINES AND CASSIE GAINES.

Message : Lynard Skynard, what can I say, I'm only 23 and unfortunately wasn't around when Ronnie, Steve
and Cassie were around. My uncle who also died shortly before I was born was a die hard Skynard fan. Free
Bird was dedicated in his memory and even though I never met my uncle it gets me a little emotional. I've seen
Jonnie and the rest of the gang twice now in cleveland, and I tell you is by far the best concert I've ever been
too. R.I.P. Ronnie, forever fly free.

Message : Words can't express how tragic this is for me. Lynyrd Skynyrd's music is so special. My first time
witnessing the spectacle that was a live Skynyrd show was in '74 at the tender age of 14 and I was hooked from
then on. Saw them 5 times with Ronnie & met him, Billy & Gary at one of those shows... in Atlanta. Such cool,
approachable & down to earth people. No egos at all. Saw them 8 times with Johnny and Rossington Collins
Band once in between so that's a total of 14 times I saw this amazing man play the keys. So talented. So
unique. There have been many players brought in to this band in place of those that have passed or left but I
don't see how they can continue now & it makes me so sad. Billy's style, presence & grace literally just can't be
replaced. He was that good. As much as I'd love to see & hear more Skynyrd music & shows (if there is I'll be
there) I think this looks like the end of the long flight of a very proud & "free bird". Truely a terrible loss to the
music world but more importantly my heart goes out to his family, bandmates, friends & everyone else that knew
& loved the man personally.
RIP Billy. You were one of a kind. Also RIP to Hughie, Leon, Allen, Cassie, Steve, Ronnie and as much as it
pains me to say this..... probably RIP to Lynyrd Skynyrd as well.
The greatest american Rock & Roll band !! EVER !!
