Thanks for reminding us SGT John " Mac " McConnell about the air crash on October 20, 1977 that killed Lynyrd Skynyrd lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines and his sister Cassie Gaines who was a backup singer.
That was a day that some more of the music died [ode to The Day the Music Died]
I saw the original band perform at Evansville, Indiana in May 1975 while I was stationed at Fort Campbell.
Here is a live version of Freebird from a few months before:
