Skynyrd is country rock and blues kicked up a notch... I despise "Freebird" (due to overplay), but things like "Simple Man", "On The Hunt", "Gimmie Three Steps", "Call Me The Breeze", "Ballad of Curtis Lowe"... are really the keys to Skynyrd.

But I know a lot of people who hate them too. Doesn't bother me in the least.

I went through my Zeppelin phase.... and yeah, it's because of what came out of Led Zeppelin -even down to the theatrics of what goes on stage when playing live, has set the stage for what everyone else had to do to be considered a rock band.

The funny thing, saxman, is that I loved motown and Zeppelin... country and Skynryd... Rush and Chicago.

Oh, I respect everyone's opinion, I really do.  However, I was certainly crucified for my tastes and not liking certain bands, LOL!  

Rush: amazing musicians, vocals of Geddy Lee....well, I guess I just don't like super high tenors (see Zep).  But that's me.
