Something for the Weekend: Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird

Great to hear this on the radio during the week. Took me back to my 'hippy' days. This is also a particularly good live version, recorded in 2003, in the band's beloved homeland of the South. Of course, the singer is not Ronnie Van Zant (see included clips), but his brother Johnny, who does an excellent job. Note also how Rickey Medlocke breaks the tremolo arm off his guitar near the end. Wonderful stuff.

    It's good John but does it not make you want to listen to the best version of all- the live one on "One more for the road?"

  2. Yes, I chose this because it was the best quality video I could find. Still not the same as the original line-up...
