    ^^^ Interesting that you ask that question, just yesterday the wifey and I were watching the Rise and Fall of Skynyrd Doc and I wondered the very same thing.
    I don't know if they would have made it to far into the 80s, Ronnie I don't think would have embraced the music styles in that decade, he loved the simple life stories he wrote about and put to music.
    The 80s music was so much different and he was a true good ol boy who loved simplicity.
    Momma told me, when I was young, come sit beside me my only son, and listen closely to what I say...

    I knew their music itself. But being a young’un (48) I learned a thing or three about them and their history. I enjoyed it.

    Probably my favorite performance of Freebird is from 1976, when they appeared at Knebworth. Funnily enough, just yesterday I found someone on YouTube doing a reaction video to that very performance. And I learned that they were one of the opening acts for the Rolling Stones that day. They did an hour long set, and tore it down and apparently the one rule was no other band was supposed to go down the tongue ( the stage was set up to look like the tongue from the Stones' logo). So naturally, as the final solo was taking off Ronnie marches Alan, Gary and Steve down that ramp. Seriously epic. I pity the band that had to follow them.

    Yeah booze and animals, and that was just the band, adding the monkey took it to new levels of weird.

    I have the Freebird the Movie Dvd. I never paid attention to them walking down The Tongue.
    I'll have to rewatch it. That's funny. The stones manager was probably having a keniption fit. Lol
    I wonder who the other band was?

    I saw it a while ago, thought it was pretty good for a documentary type thing. Always makes ya a little sad though to see it play out the way it did.

    Yeah, I think the rest of the band should have hung it up after their 87 reunion tour, you know, one last hurrah for the fans.
    To me, Lynyrd Skynyrd Died in the crash. I just couldn't do the 2.0 version.

    I watched it today while working on my guitar. Hand polishing frets. My arm hasn’t been this sore since I was a teenager minus a GF.

    IIRC there were a few. I think 10CC's followed Skynyrd.
    Apparently the concert was supposed to end around midnight, but the Stones didn't even hit the stage until line 11:30.

    I liked Lynyrd Skynyrd.
    I liked the Allman Brothers Band.


    Your opinion….

    When I saw it I thought it was pretty good . No , I feel Skynyrd maybe had one more good album in them. I know Ronnie was going to step down due to throat issues and groom Johnnie to take over . And he would continue to write songs and manage the band. And was going to record an Album with Waylon Jennings after that last tour as well as produce Molly Hachett. I agree that Skynyrds time was the 70's . And the simplicity of The music was for that time . The things Ronnie wrote about would of I think had things been different transferred to the world of Country music. Which would of been great in my opinion. I'm a huge fan of traditional country music and mostly what I play as guitarist and sing.
