Biography

Beyond the tragedy, the history, the raging guitars and the killer songs, ultimately, Lynyrd Skynyrd is about an indomitable will. About survival of spirit; unbowed, uniquely American, stubbornly resolute.

With their first set of new studio material since 2003’s Vicious Cycle, legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd returns with God & Guns, due out September 29 on Loud & ... Read more in Amazon's Lynyrd Skynyrd Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Rock & Roll (through Lynyrd Skynyrd) Lives On December 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anytime Lynyrd Skynyrd comes out with a new CD, infrequently as that maybe, the reaction is almost universally the same: They're not as good as the original. Well, how could they be? Skynyrd was born of a bunch of high school friends who learned all the facets of their craft together, plus Ed King (good), Billy Powell (great) and later Steve Gaines (brilliant). Few bands can compare with this, let alone replaces the pieces taken away by the famous plane crash that killed Ronnie Van Zant and Gaines, among others. A downgrade was inevitable.

Johnny Van Zant on his best day is a passable singer. He has bad days. And if Ricky Medlocke was good enough originally, Ronnie would have kept him around. Instead he moved on to Blackfoot, a band not in any way in Skynyrd's class. Only Guitarist Randall Hall was worthy of the Skynyrd tradition, and he's been gone for years.

But that doesn't mean Skynyrd's second incarnation can't rock. The tribute tour gave of us a very good reworking of Swamp Music. 1991 offered "The End of the Road." The Last Rebel, the album, represents their best work. And there's scattering of very good rock since: "Good Luck, Bad Luck"; "Talked Myself Right into It"; "Rockin' Little Town"; "Mad Hatter."

And that, too, is the best description of God & Guns: Solid Rock. Though, as with most things, it has its highs and lows. Of course there had to be highs. Gary Rossington is still with them. And Billy Powell, but sadly only for five songs due to his death in January of '09.

But more importantly, a major low has been removed. Johnny Van Zant has finally gotten away from the heavy-handed way in which he has always delivered his messages.

5.0 out of 5 stars The music lives on.... September 29, 2009
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
"God and Guns"..... I bought the two disc special which contains six extra cuts. I see a lot of people referencing this album as more of a "country music" type album. I disagree. What people have to realize is that its not Skynyrd sounding "country" its current day country music sounding more and more like "Skynyrd".

This album has OUTSTANDING studio quality sound. The guitars scream loud and clear, Johnny VanZant does an awesome job delivering the message. The lyrics are strong and true. There is a little bit of something for everybody on this album. The Great "All American" Band. God Bless Lynyrd Skynyrd. The music proudly lives on.

This is a very welcome new release by Lynyrd Skynyrd. This is their first release of new material, since 2003's "Vicious Cycle" Album. This is hard rocking, great, Southern Rock Music, with Southern Themes, and some Strong Messages. Rickey Medlocke said "We've never been a political band, but if you listen to the lyrics, you'll know where we're coming from". This Cd contains all TOTALLY NEW MATERIAL!!!

This album cd was recorded during 2007, 2008, & 2009 mostly in Nashville. Also, during part of this time, Skynyrd was on their "World Tour" with Kid Rock on the "Rock + Rebels" Tour. However, they made time in between gigs to get into the studio and record this ablum. Also, during the recording of this album CD, Ean Evans their bassist, and Billy Powell their piano player, and Original Band Member both died. Roughly half of the songs on this cd include Billy Powell on the piano.

This album cd is dedicated to Ean Evans & Billy Powell.

The liner notes also list some other musicians included in recording this cd, these include John 5 (Marilyn Manson's guitarist), and Rob Zombie.

The Lynyrd Skynyrd Website list the addition of the following new members:
Peter "Keys" Pisarczyk - keyboards - The new keyboard player after Billy's death. He was previously the keyboardist for George Clinton & P.Funk.
Robert Kearns - bass - The new bass player after Eans's death. He was previously the backup bass player for Ian Evans, after Ean was diagnosed with cancer.

The song set is as follows:
1.Still Unbroken (they've been through hell, but ther're still unbroken)
2.Simple Life (kinda has the theme of "Simple Man")
3.Little Thing Called You
4.

5.0 out of 5 stars GET READY TO BE BLOWN AWAY!! September 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
LYNYRD SKYNYRD'S new release "God and Guns" is their first album of new material in over 6 years, and after listening to it in its' entirety, I now believe it just may be the first album of really "new" material to come out of a classic Rock and Roll act since the early 1980's.

Every song on this CD stands alone - I'm serious - there are no duds, no clunkers, no fillers - it is amazing from the opening riff to the closing note. Not only will it satisfy fans of the band and classic rock in general, it will also appeal to country music fans and (believe it or not) Metal fans as well. Within the confines of this CD, the boys from the Skynyrd band may well have created a new musical genre (would you call it Southern Country Metal-Lite??). No matter what you'd call it, you WILL call it GREAT MUSIC!

Possibly contributing to the different sound is the fact that they collaborated with unlikely suspects John 5 and Rob Zombie (who appear on the CD - you gotta hear "Floyd" - one of my favorite tracks, along with "Storm" and --- well, the other 10 songs! Truthfully, they are all that good!)

Lynyrd Skynyrd has also reinlisted the guitar army harmonies sound that made their sound so distinct when they first burst on the scene, and now they have incorporated a heavier sound that fits all too perfectly - even though no one (including myself) thought it would have.

What the Lynyrd Skynyrd band has done with this new album is to breathe new life into not only Classic and Southern Rock, but music in general. In an age when everything seems to sound the same, they have given us something that doesn't sound repackaged, but something fresh and exciting. So please, do yourself a favor and get this CD!

In summary, if you only buy one CD this year, make it God and Guns - you will not be sorry.

Appalling. I won't ever take the time to listen to the cd because the lyrics and the message are repulsive. If Ronnie knew what his brother and co. are doing he'd be outraged. The real Lynyrd Skynyrd were never a political band so why kiss the right-wing nowadays?
