slayer199: Irving Maimway: A quick scan of Wikipedia shows one guy from the original band.

Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines were 2 of the most important members (songwriters/singers). So subby is pretty much correct. Not the same band without those 2 guys.

My cousin played with Steve Gaines back in the early '70s in the SW Missouri/NE Okie area. Steve & his sister were the only non-southerners in the band IIRC. He said Gaines was one of those guys he just knew was gonna make it big.

douchebag/hater: stoppit: Back in the early 80's, a BBS that I frequented always had a greeting of "Are you Lynyrd Skynyrd?" when you logged on. Anyone know if Skynyrd was a nerd?

IIRC: Leonard Skinnerd was the name of their high school gym teacher who didn't like long hair. Again, IIRC.

Minus D for you.......
