^Maybe that's the way they should have spelled their name.
On the latest cover of Guitar Hero, Lynyrd Skynyrd's name was misspelled.

Now come on! Really? No one caught this mistake?
In my mind, Lynyrd Skynyrd is the epitome of Southern rock.
The group has been through so much (from the plane crash in 1977 to just recently losing a member) and now this happens. I'd be pretty ticked off.
Granted, Johnny Van Zant has done a tremendous job stepping in and taking over after his brother (a hard act to follow).
Here's a performance of "I Ain't the One" (I bet you were expecting "Free Bird" or "Sweet Home Alabama", right? Those are classics, but this song is underrated!) from the Old Grey Whistle Test - BBC 1975.
Allen Collins always creeped me out by his bushy long hair and his freakishly tallness! Awesome guitar player nonetheless.
Did any of you get the chance to see Lynyrd Skynyrd with this original lineup? I know my dad saw them the February before the October crash and he said it was a just a great concert.
About Classic rock girl!
I'm a college student who grew up two decades too late and missed out on some fantastic music. I relive those years through this blog, by talking about anything and everything rock music related from the '60s, '70s, and '80s-- with some of "today's" music thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
