Another bit of trivia...Ed King, a guitarist for and one of the reasons Skynyrd established their "three guitar line-up" was originally a member of Strawberry Alarm Clock.

Their greatest hits compilations are as good as any band out there, but their real greatness is on their posthumous "Skynyrds First and... Last" album. I don't know how three of these songs, "Was I Right or Wrong", "Coming Home", and "Down South Jukin'" weren't released until after they died. They are as good as anything they put out there, and on top of that, it is really raw, with very little production. It lets you see the real Skynyrd, before the fame and fortune...

RIP, Forby Leonard Skinner (1933-2010). He was the high school gym teacher who sent the boys to the principal's office because of their long hair and the origin of the band's name.

Congratulations, Mr. Pyle! I didn't realize how long you had to wait to be inducted until I read an article. Hopefully, Yes will be re-nominated and this time, inducted in 2017!
