Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama

Has it really been 35 years since the infamous plane crash? I’ve always liked the band’s music and found the debate over the meaning of their lyrics to be interesting. Despite what some people think, the band and Neil Young were fans of each other’s music and had plenty in common. If the original band was alive today they could clear up a lot of confusion over the messages, but that’s part of the mystery.

Related to the band, it’s amazing to look back at the long list of incredible music that came out of the Muscle Shoals (Alabama) Sound Studio. Despite it’s remote location, that’s a lot of talent that went through there.
