Dude has been dead at least for 3 months.
Don't know whether to laugh at or cry for FARK right now.
2002-01-04 01:58:12 PM

2002-01-04 01:58:15 PM  
2002-01-04 01:58:32 PM

2002-01-04 01:58:56 PM  
Boobies, i know that i am dumb, but who is this guy?
2002-01-04 01:59:04 PM

2002-01-04 01:59:38 PM  
No he hasn't.
2002-01-04 01:59:41 PM  
Am I missing something? It says CNN yet it takes you to lynardskynyrd.com wiht no mention of the headline.
2002-01-04 01:59:45 PM  
Laf. Got right by me. Time for a little tagline modification
2002-01-04 01:59:55 PM  
I'm as free as a bird now...
2002-01-04 02:00:07 PM  
Why the CNN tag ... links to the Skynyrd site that has no mention of anybody dying.
2002-01-04 02:00:21 PM  
i feel that SLAYERSWINE
2002-01-04 02:00:33 PM  
Ok, so another member of Lynrd Skynrd died, but was it in a plane?
2002-01-04 02:00:36 PM  
I suppose only old people know who he is. Who the hell listens to Lynrd Skynrd anymore?
2002-01-04 02:00:42 PM  
Original bass player for Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Hey,so I guess my John Bonham obituary link will be going up today.
2002-01-04 02:00:59 PM  
He plays for the Redskins right??
2002-01-04 02:01:20 PM  
Was he the 'Leon' in Leonard Skynard?
2002-01-04 02:02:03 PM  
drew are you trying to bait someone into stealing a link?
2002-01-04 02:02:56 PM  
Yeah, sure. See what that Heineken swill does to your brain.
Stick to Becks !!!

NEWS FLASH: Germany Surrenders!

Laf - nice touch, though, Drewbie. :-) That's now, quite possible, the most hilarious headline on Fark EVER.
2002-01-04 02:04:17 PM  
Okay, now it's hilarious. "Newsflash! Leon Wilkinson died three months ago."

Alert the media!
2002-01-04 02:04:28 PM  
I don't care when the fark that happened that's still sad :o(
2002-01-04 02:04:30 PM  
I hope that doesn't mean we will have to listen to "Sweet Home Alabama" for the rest of the day.
2002-01-04 02:04:47 PM  
I bet Ananova runs an article on this

lynyrd skynyrd's better than most of the shiat they call music nowadays. and i'm not old, unless 24 is old, then in that case i guess i'm old.
2002-01-04 02:05:24 PM  
Whats this Lynrd Skynrd thing everyone keeps babbling about?
Is that some kind of trophy mounting place?
2002-01-04 02:06:51 PM  
A southern man don't need him around, anyhow.
2002-01-04 02:08:33 PM  
uhh and who is this again?
2002-01-04 02:09:13 PM  
ah ha! i knew it... drew you slickie fox! can i call you that now? the slickie fox?
2002-01-04 02:11:16 PM  
i despise this band. they claimed that when they opened for the who in the early 70's that they outplayed them. yah farking right. and "sweet home alabama" is a neal young bashing song, and you don't bash neil young.
2002-01-04 02:13:30 PM  
neil young sucks big time, fark neil young.
2002-01-04 02:14:03 PM  
by the way, which ones Lynard?
2002-01-04 02:16:24 PM  
Goodnight, funnyman....
2002-01-04 02:17:47 PM  
yah, kingofmars, you have a point. i forgot that i prefir crappy writing and overrated musicianship coming from a bunch of punk ass hicks to a brilliant and innovative singer-songwriter.
2002-01-04 02:18:32 PM  
"and you don't bash neil young"

Of course not. Who could possibly bash the most off-key singer in history? He should have had somebody else sing his tunes.
2002-01-04 02:18:36 PM  
I think it's pretty pathetic that they have been going around calling themselves Lynyrd Skynyrd for the last 25 years. As far as I'm concerned they all died in the plane crash. I saw their next to last show (Clearwater, FL) in 1977 and they were a great southern rock band. The crap they put out after that was a crime.
2002-01-04 02:18:59 PM  
Gimme back my bullets.....
2002-01-04 02:19:24 PM  
Neil Young? More like Neil Old.
2002-01-04 02:19:36 PM  
'Southern Rock' = Country music, but with Harleys.
2002-01-04 02:21:14 PM  
Ooooh oh that smell,
the smell of death's around me..

from That Smell
2002-01-04 02:21:44 PM  
Neil Young doesn't suck. He's some great songs: Old Man, Harvest Moon, Heart of Gold, etc.
2002-01-04 02:25:38 PM  
Someone told me once that there's a Warren Zevon 'reply' to 'Sweet Home Alabama' which is, of course a 'reply' to Niel Young's 'Southern Man'.

ANyone know the name of the tune? It's supposed to be quite interesting.
2002-01-04 02:26:13 PM  
Eddie_irvine: the undisputed king of comedy everyone!
2002-01-04 02:27:41 PM  
At least I hope Mr. Skynyrd is OK.
2002-01-04 02:29:57 PM  
and you don't bash neil young.

A-farking-men to that. Neil just rocks in every way a musician can rock. It also turns out he's a pretty remarkable father, too.

He should have had somebody else sing his tunes.

That would be like your mom wearing Britney Spears' panties.
2002-01-04 02:30:39 PM  
Steve Spurrier has resigned from Florida.
2002-01-04 02:31:05 PM  
Next thing you know, FARK will announce the death of George Harrison.
2002-01-04 02:31:26 PM  
Neil Young may not suck, but he sure as hell whines too much. Almost like the Morrissey of his time.

Eddie Izzard: ill-reputed king of comedy!
2002-01-04 02:32:57 PM  

I am suprised no one had done that yet....
