If we leave here tomorrow, would you still remember Tributosaurus?
Do you like your rock and roll southern-fried, by chance? Do you like your bluesy soul nice and greasy? Do you like your dueling guitar acrobatics laced with plenty of country?
We hope so. Because we sure do, and it’s about damn time we attacked an icon of southern, classic rock.
Join us on Wednesday October 2nd at Martyrs, and Friday October 4th at Wire, as Tributosaurus becomes Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Your radio has been dominated by them for almost 50 years, with so many great songs. Gimme Three Steps, Simple Man, What’s Your Name, That Smell, Sweet Home Alabama, and that one big other one people always shout out…AT EVERY SHOW EVER.
Lynyrd Skynyrd started in Jacksonville, Florida, and was “discovered” by that great rock’n’roll Zelig, Al Kooper. He got them in this studio, and along with The Allman Brothers, Little Feat, and ZZ Top, Skynyrd dominated the first wave of Southern Rock.
After 5 albums, including 3 that went double platinum, a 1977 plane crash legendarily took the lives of singer Ronnie Van Zant, lead guitarist Steve Gaines, and backup singer Cassie Gaines. The band at its peak was gone.
They’d return after a 10 year hiatus, with Ronnie’s little brother installed as the new lead vocalist, and toured for years to follow. Still, the musical heyday of that initial period was never to be matched.
We’ll do our best on October 2nd and 4th.
