Lynyrd skynyrd - dead man walkin'

Pyle now plays in a Lynyrd Skynyrd cover band, the Artimus Pyle Band, and he said he does it because he loves to play the songs Ronnie wrote, and he helps bring them to life.

"I can tell when he's there, man," Allman said. "I'm not going to get all cosmic on you. But listen, he's there."

Merry Clayton 's version of the song appeared on her self-titled 1971 album. She later performed backing vocals on "Sweet Home Alabama", after some personal conflict. [5]

But he reluctantly boarded the doomed Convair CV-240 with 25 others who were part of the entourage and flight crew of the band Lynyrd Skynyrd, departing Greenville, ., en route to Baton Rouge on Oct. 20, 1977.

The plane rose to the skies for the last time at 5:02 . local time without incident. Once in the air, anxiety gave way to giddy relief among the passengers. "We had decided the night before that we would definitely get rid of the plane in Baton Rouge, so we started partying to celebrate the last flight on it," Powell told Rolling Stone in 1977. Music blared and the aisles filled with increasingly rambunctious revelers dancing 12,000 feet above the earth. Others relaxed in their seats and took in the magnificent views. "We were looking out the window at this October sky. The sun was setting and you could see the contrails from the aircraft. It was just beautiful," Peden says.

"Sweet Home Alabama" was a major chart hit for a band whose previous singles had "lazily sauntered out into release with no particular intent". The hit led to two TV rock show offers, which the band turned down. [2] In addition to the original appearance on Second Helping , the song has appeared on numerous Lynyrd Skynyrd collections and live albums.
