Very interesting read.
Let's Wish A Happy Birthday to our legendary guitarist of the day Mr. GARY ROSSINGTON born December 4, 1951 is an American musician, best known as a founding member of southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. He plays lead and occasional rhythm guitar. He was a founding member of the Rossington Collins Band along with former bandmate, Allen Collins. As of 2017, Rossington is the last original member of the band still with Lynyrd Skynyrd. Rossington was one of six band members who survived the October 20, 1977, plane crash near Gillsburg, Mississippi, that took the lives of Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines, and three others. His pelvic bone was broken, some ribs, as well as bones in his feet, along with both wrists, both arms, and both legs. Rossington formed the band "The Noble Five" as a teenager with friends Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins, Larry Junstrom and Bob Burns in the summer of 1964. They would later change the name of the band to "The One Percent," but eventually settled on the name Lynyrd Skynyrd. Rossington's instrument of choice was a 1959 Gibson Les Paul which he had purchased from a woman whose boyfriend had left her and left behind his guitar. He named it "Berniece" in honor of his mother. And our legendary guitar solo is the solo performed in "TUESDAY'S GONE" by the legend himself which he played lead in this song. "Tuesday's Gone" is the second track on Lynyrd Skynyrd's first album, (Pronounced 'lĕh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd) released in 1973.
