Biography

Lynyrd Skynyrd has epitomized triumph over tragedy as well as any band in music history. In the aftermath of the 1977 plane crash that interrupted its career, guitarists Gary Rossington and Allen Collins provided a lifeline to bridge their pain until the surviving members could regroup 10 years later.

Lynyrd Skynyrd has epitomized triumph over tragedy as well as any band in music history. In the aftermath of the 1977 plane crash that interrupted its career, guitarists Gary Rossington and Allen Collins provided a lifeline to bridge their pain until the surviving members could regroup 10 years later.

The passing of singer-songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines and others left the remaining members with serious physical and emotional wounds. Finally, in 1980, four of the five survivors--Rossington, Collins, Wilkeson and keyboardist Billy Powell--formed the Rossington Collins Band. This was not Skynyrd II. Instead, the group recruited a female singer, Dale Krantz, a whiskey-voiced belter who'd been singing backup with Jacksonville, FL, homeboys 38 Special (fronted by Van Zant's younger brother Donnie). Rounding out the lineup were two more Floridians, guitarist-singer Barry Lee Harwood and drummer Derek Hess. But, eventually with the exits of Rossington and Krantz, who would marry, the group disbanded.
