The Band Name
In the year 1964, a group of teenagers in Jacksonville decided to form a music band. These included members Ronnie Van Zant, Larry Junstrom, Bob Burns, Allen Collins and Gary Rossington. They named the band My Backyard but later changed it to the Noble Five.
In 1968, they started calling themselves One Percent but in 1969 they settled for Leonard Skinnerd. The name was in fact a mocking tribute to a high school teacher of theirs. He was distinctly known for his strict behavior against boys who kept long hair at school. The rockers however changed the spellings of the name to the present Lynyrd Skynyrd.The musicians now share a cordial relationship with the teacher and even invited him to one of their concerts and introduced him to the fans present there.
Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour
The Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour is a very important moment for the band's fans who have been part of their journey all these years. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees are best known for hits such as Gimme Three Steps, Call Me The Breeze, You Got That Right and their signature song Free Bird. The latter is one of the constants on their set-list of live concerts and they often perform an elongated version of it.
