Lynyrd Skynyrd: Hell on Wheels…

ls1976

Cameron chats with Lynyrd Skynyrd for this 1976 piece for the L.A. Times. Happy Monday all.

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Hell on Wheels Puts On the Brakes

When Lynyrd Skynyrd finally broke into the top 10 last month with its fifth album, “One More From the Road,” singer-founder Ronnie Van Zant could hardly wait to celebrate by canceling all future interviews. “The band doesn’t owe anything to anybody,” he declared happily. “Most of the media people, especially the press, have consistently portrayed us as either children or a bunch of rowdy drunks. That may or may not be true, but I know I’d much rather deal with the audiences that really put us here.”

After 10 grueling years of almost constant touring, Dixie’s Lynryd Skynyrd are anything but children. Their notoriously long record of pillage and arrest, however, does provide one thing. To the absolute delight of its hell-raising following, the band has boozed and brawled its way to top. But now, bolstered by the confidence that only long-sought success can bring, 27-year-old Van Zant is talking about changing that too.

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Hell on Wheels…

Comments Off

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.
