Lynyrd Skynyrd Rocks CES

Southern rock kings Lynyrd Skynyrd—anchored by founding member Gary Rossington (guitar), original drummer Rickey Medlocke (guitar), and Johnny Van Zant, brother of original frontman, the late Ronnie Van Zant—mesmerized fans with a greatest hits show played to gritty perfection at the Hard Rock last night.

The show, hosted by Klipsch, included the classics “What’s Your Name,” “Simple Man,” “Saturday Night Special,” “Sweet Home Alabama,” and a dozen more. And, of course, it was one concert where fans shouting “Free Bird…Free Bird” actually got their wish. And then some.

Like the patch on Johnny’s shirt says: Lynyrd Skynyrd Forever.
