“Last Of A Dying Breed” – Lynryd Skynryd
Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of the most iconic of the Southern Rock Bands from the 70’s era still performing today. Not many of the original members still left, I saw the original lineup in June of ’77 at RFK stadium in Philly, they were opening for Peter Frampton, but they seemed to be the main attraction. Before them, Dickey Betts and Great Southern and The J Geils Band started the Show. Betts played a short set as he was having trouble with the sound system. It was a real hot day, and it took a while to get everyone in the 100,00 seat facility, J Geils was playing when I got there with a few friends. They were like a blues rock type band. They were pretty good, but got a couple of requests for free bird.
