When you see the words “Lynyrd Skynyrd,” what’s the first thing that pops into your head? If it’s their beyond-ubiquitous good ol’ boy epic “Sweet Home Alabama,” congratulations: You and 98 percent of humanity share a cultural touchstone. If it’s not, you’re either a liar, an older Southern rocker, or a vinyl-collecting connoisseur of golden-age rock the likes of which are fewer and further between these days. For all their Neil Young–baiting and stereotypical rebel swagger, Skynyrd put out a buttload of reliably raucous red, white & bluesy jams there in the ’70s, crafting a few masterpieces in the process, until a tragic plane crash killed primary songwriter, Ronnie Van Zant, in ‘77. The band broke up, but reunited years later to become a reliably crowd-pleasing act on the festival and casino circuit. Is latter-day Skynyrd more than that one inescapable rodeo anthem? Unknown, but chances are they scorch it live. KYLE FLECK
