Lynyrd Skynyrd was formed in 1964 by three teenage friends, and is best known for their signature songs “Free Bird” and “Sweet Home Alabama,” which helped them make their name in the music industry as pioneers of Southern Rock. The band went through several line-up changes before releasing its eponymous debut album in 1973. In 1977, the band was at the peak of its popularity, but a tragic aeroplane crash put an abrupt end to its most successful incarnation, killing three members. Having disbanded after the disaster, Lynyrd Skynyrd reunited after a ten year hiatus, in 1987. Co-founding member Gary Rossington and core members Johnny Van Zant (younger brother of original lead singer and founding member Ronnie Van Zant), along with guitarist Rickey Medlocke, who recorded with the band for a short time in the early 1970s, are the current line-up and they continue to tour and record. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006.
