It talked about that.  They completely denied it. They were the "boo-hoo-hoo"  If you watch it, 'dickhead' is not what you'll come away with ....

My wife and I walked out of their concert when their singer went on a long rant about all the porch monkeys in Jacksonville taking all our hard earned tax dollars. 15 years ago at Wild Adventures in Valdosta. We were not the only to leave, but it was a small trickle.

The documentary pretty much ends with the plane crash in '77.

Is there anyone even left from the original line-up?

It was a good documentary. I didn't know much about Ronnie and it sounds like he was a complete feckin' prick, at least when he was drinking.  Like an abusive parent.

I’ve yet to watch this documentary, but I’ve seen a bunch of them on Skynyrd in recent years

They said he was definitely a fighter. And if anyone screwed up on stage, they would get reamed afterward

It’s the reason Ed King quit. He broke a string during Free Bird, and kind of winged the solo. Big no no. No improvisation allowed in that band. After the show, Ronnie lit him up, and Ed said feck it I’m out.

The reason he had to wing it was because Ronnie, and Ed’s guitar tech had gone out, got fecked up, and got into a dust up, and the tech was still in jail.

Did it go over what a bunch of racist dickheads they are?

I was a little surprised by that.  He knew the guitar tech wasn't there. so why didn't he change his own strings?

Ed was a total outsider in that band being a california kid, those southern guys were some hard living mofos.

One of them I watched said people often compared them to the Allmans, but it wasn’t a good comparison at all

The Allmans were mellow stoner hippies and a jam band

Skynyrd were redneck bar brawlers and extremely well rehearsed

Any King fan's might be interested to know where his famous '59 Burst "Red Eye" ended up. If you have a GP sub you can probably skip.

Was it Ed that Ronnie attacked with broken glass and cut his hands all up, while saying something to the effect of "you'll never play guitar again"?  That's way past some bar-brawlin' shit.  That dude was nuts.  I grew up on and love Skynyrd's music, but it kinda soured my image of them (or at least Ronnie).  I'd GTFO of a dysfunctional group like too, even being on top of the world at the time.
