Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Some good ol Southern Rock to start the next round of this game, courtesy of Brass Neck, we bring you Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Hard to believe, but they have been going for about 45 years now, maybe one day they'll get to the end of Freebird.

Wiki says 14 albums to their name, so plenty to choose from. Usual rules apply, noms close 10pm Sunday, etc, etc.

Before then, I have a total of 16 bands to see, including the next heat of our search to find a band to play Mammothfest, could be a noisy weekend coming up :-)

Brass Neck | 3694 comments The obvious choices having been snapped up I'll go for one from their last album released just days before the plane crash and only a few dates into their US tour, the dates of which were printed on the inner LP bag. It's also a song which shows how self-aware they were with Ronnie Van Zant expressing open disgust at the self-destructive, substance abusing behaviour of his band-mates. In their early days he is supposed to have corralled and coerced the band with an iron will in an effort to grab the brass ring but once they made it and were making money ..........

KJS | 5085 comments The best support band I ever saw (Rainbow Theatre 23/11/74) , Golden Earring never stood a chance following them on.I then saw them a few weeks later headlining at the same venue.They were so much better live than on record.

My favourite LS track is already on the list so I'll go with this great J. J. Cale cover.

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments There we go then, 11 noms for Brassy's nom of Lynyrd Skynyrd gives us 4 votes each.

Sorry I didn't get around to nomming, so many bands to be seen over the weekend that I just haven't had time to look for one, and near enough everything I know of theirs was nommed long ago.

Voting closes Thursday 10 pm as ever, then it might go a wee bit wobbly if I have to do anything before Sunday - off to Edinburgh on Friday, then another all day gig session back home on Saturday.

Playlist is here:

A Simple Man

Tuesday's Gone
Lucky Man
Sweet Home Alabama
Saturday Night Special
Down South Jukin'

Gimme Three Steps

Go get 'em guys...

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments There we go then, a close run race, but edging by a single point, KJS's nom, Call Me The Breeze.

The Duke grabs the silver with Tuesday's Gone, and filling the podium, Tim, with that old chestnut, Freebird.

I am not sure that they ever really managed to equal those early glory years, but kudos to them for still coming up with new music after all this time.


message 31: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6566 comments yeah, too much fun! well done the winners!

always had a soft spot for 'free bird' - not because i like it, but it was always a great deal of fun watching the 'rockers' dance to it (at local discos, for local people!), swaying around awkwardly with dennis hopper faces, for the first 4 hours of the song, until it speeds up, at which time air guitars were permissable! :)


message 32: by Brass Neck (last edited Apr 06, 2018 04:14AM) (new)

Brass Neck | 3694 comments '.....at which time air guitars were permissable!' - Nope, you weren't paying enough attention. Air guitars are permissible, nay mandatory, throughout Free Bird.

I have a mate who I go to lots of gigs with who still air guitars at nearly 60 but it doesn't stop there. The air drums and air keyboards are particularly excruciating to be in close proximity to.
