Lynryd Skynyrd

Hard Rock


A couple of high school friends created the group called Leonard Skinnered, mocking their gym teacher who strictly enforced the school policy of no long hair on guys. Throughout the years, many people dropped out and joined the band. They changed their name from Leonard Skinnered to The Noble Five, then to the One Percent. Then they decide they would stick with Lynryd Skynyrd. They rose to fame with their songs "Freebird" and "Sweet Home Alabama". Some their careers/life's ended quickly when their plane crashed in 1977. This quickly ended their career. After a few years of recovery they started playing again
