We are pleased to share the 200th Cameron penned piece for the Journalism section of the site with you today. It’s a story and band near and dear to his heart….Lynyrd Skynyrd. This October 1976 L.A. Times interview with singer Ronnie Van Zandt discusses the band’s much deserved partying reputation, the success of their fifth album, One More From the Road and their very bright future.
As you know, tragedy would strike just one year later with the heart breaking plane crash that would cost Ronnie, guitarist Steve Gaines, vocalist Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary and co-pilot William Gray their lives. But let’s focus on the good times, the music and this interview. We hope you like it.
