I really enjoyed his Rossington Collins Band. Good times. RIP
Gary Rossington RIP
One of my favorite Southern R&R Les Paul players.
The guy survives a plane crash, but unfortunately has left for the big stage too early-71.
Gary Rossington, Founding Lynyrd Skynyrd Guitarist, Dies at 71 (yahoo.com)
This is really sad news as I do believe he was the last one of the original members of what I thought was one of the best ( southern ) rock and roll bands created here in the US ; Lynyard Skynard.
Artimus Pyle who replaced Billy Burns is still alive.
I agree '' elrod '' that either with their own band or with Lynyard Skynard that Allen Collins and Gary Rossington along with Ed King could really play !
I have a lot of great memories with that band during my high school years ,,,,,
I also believe that there is a direct reference to Gary Rossington in the song ; '' That Smell '' about all of their drug and alcohol use during that time. Great guitar player ......
