Rest in Peace Billy Powell - Thanks for the Music

If you're my age (or older) and grew up in the South, Lynrd Skynrd was part of the 'soundtrack' of your youth. Let's all hold up our cigarette lighters (ok, well, I haven't had a cigarette lighter since high school!) as a tribute to a great song!

That used to be my favorite song when I was in 8th grade!

There will never be muscians who make MUSIC like that again.
That song always reminds me of Forrest Gump...when "what's her face" is thinking of killing herself when she is partying and doing all the drugs...they played that song.

Suz, do you mean "Jenny"?!

"If I leave here tomorrow,
Would you still remember me?

For I must be traveling on now,
cause there's too many places I've gotta see."

I think if they played this song more up here in the tundra, it would melt away all our snow.

Deron, good point!

PS: I'm looking forward to seeing that movie "New In Town" - about life in a small Minnesota town (like the one my Mom grew up in!)
