About this Item: Three Rivers Press (CA), 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first complete, unvarnished history of Southern rock s legendary and most popular band, from its members hardscrabble boyhoods in Jacksonville, Florida and their rise to worldwide fame to the tragic plane crash that killed the founder and the band s rise again from the ashes. In the summer of 1964 Jacksonville, Florida teenager Ronnie Van Zant and some of his friends hatched the idea of forming a band to play covers of the Rolling Stones, Beatles, Yardbirds and the country and blues-rock music they had grown to love. Naming their band after Leonard Skinner, the gym teacher at Robert E. Lee Senior High School who constantly badgered the long-haired aspiring musicians to get haircuts, they were soon playing gigs at parties, and bars throughout the South. During the next decade Lynyrd Skynyrd grew into the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful of the rock bands to emerge from the South since the Allman Brothers. Their hits Free Bird and Sweet Home Alabama became classics. Then, at the height of its popularlity in 1977, the band was struck with tragedy --a plane crash that killed Ronnie Van Zant and two other band members. Lynyrd Skynyrd: Remembering the Free Birds of Southern Rock is an intimate chronicle of the band from its earliest days through the plane crash and its aftermath, to its rebirth and current status as an enduring cult favorite. From his behind-the-scenes perspective as Ronnie Van Zant s lifelong friend and frequent member of the band s entourage who was also aboard the plane on that fateful flight, Gene Odom reveals the unique synthesis of blues/country rock and songwriting talent, relentless drive, rebellious Southern swagger and down-to-earth sensibility that brought the band together and made it a defining and hugely popular Southern rock band -- as well as the destructive forces that tore it apart. Illustrated throughout with rare photos, Odom traces the band s rise to fame and shares personal stories that bring to life the band s journey. For the fans who have purchased a cumulative 35 million copies of Lynyrd Skynyrd s albums and continue to pack concerts today, Lynyrd Skynyrd is a celebration of an immortal American band.

About this Item: Thewordverve Inc, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Going on the road with a bunch of talented musicians isn t all glitz and glamour, says Paul Abraham, but a more enjoyable job would be hard to find. His memoir will take you behind the scenes, offering intimate details of the kind of life a roadie or a musician leads. But that s not all. There is much more to Paul than his experiences as a tour manager. He has had a full and entertaining life, indeed. Having grown up in the Mississippi Delta, the Birthplace of the Blues, Paul s interest in music flourished and would expand into a wide range of sounds--from classical to classic rock, from country to bluegrass, from big band to jazz. He has been influenced by it all. The first concert he attended was the Beatles in 1966, and from that moment, Paul knew what he wanted to do. Live music was where it was happening, and by hook or by crook, he was going to be involved. Paul eventually would meet Ronnie Van Zant and the Lynyrd Skynyrd band. No one could guess at the time that Paul s fate would be to befriend this legendary band and, a long time down the road, to actually tour with the survivors of the 1977 plane crash. He was witness to and, often times, a participant in the antics chronicled here. Paul went on to tour with other artists such as Bad Company, the Marshall Tucker Band, 38 Special, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Paul Rodgers, the Barefoot Servants, and Michael Peterson. He spent a dozen years, on and off, with Billy Ray Cyrus. There are stories within this book about all of them. This is the Gospel According to Abraham. Seller Inventory # APC9780999247907

About this Item: Skyhorse Publishing, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Surviving is a true blessing that few get to experience. Being strapped in the seat of a plane as it plunges into a nosedive midair is everyone s worst nightmare. Bracing for Impact s compilers and contributors know. They have both lived out that fear and survived, albeit badly hurt, in their own plane crashes. In this collection of true-life survivor tales, people from all walks of life--a freelance writer, a crew member of the Lynyrd Skynyrd band, a naval flight surgeon, a teenager, and a newlywed on her honeymoon, among others--recount their traumatic narrow escapes as engines stalled, fuel ran out, hazardous weather conditions descended, and landings did not go according to plan. In the face of death, as life flashed before their eyes--or not, as some wryly note--these survivors encountered the terrific split of before and after the crash. Their lives, though preserved, would change forever. Perhaps more significant than the crash itself is how each story plays out in the aftermath of the ordeal. In heart-wrenching, unrelenting honesty, these stories explore the wide spectrum of impacts on survivors--ranging from debilitating fear, post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse, to a renewed sense of urgency, where survivors swear to live each day to the fullest and rededicate their lives to helping others. Including the 1977 story of the Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash that killed lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, and vocalist Cassie Gaines, Bracing for Impact is as much a horrific account of air disasters as it is a celebration and recognition of the people who survived them. Fans of the 2016 Clint Eastwood film Sully starring Tom Hanks will enjoy this edge-of-your-seat read! Features 45 black and white photographs of survivors and wreckages.

Years later, one of the boys would become famous-and the other would stand by his side through thick and thin. This is the story of two young men from the same neighborhood, school, and world who together, discovered the meaning of true friendship. As Ronnie s dreams of becoming a professional musician finally became a reality, Lynyrd Skynyrd began selling out arenas and became famous for not only their music, but also their substance abuse. After Ronnie offered Gene a job as a security officer for the band, he embarked on an unforgettable journey into a world like no other. But everything would change in October 1977 when the plane carrying the band plummeted from the sky. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ronnie Van Zant, and Me . Gene Odom provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse of what it was like to be friends with one of the biggest rock stars of the 1970s and how a friendship between two childhood buddies stood the test of time.

About this Item: Thewordverve Inc, 2017. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Going on the road with a bunch of talented musicians isn t all glitz and glamour, says Paul Abraham, but a more enjoyable job would be hard to find. His memoir will take you behind the scenes, offering intimate details of the kind of life a roadie or a musician leads. But that s not all. There is much more to Paul than his experiences as a tour manager. He has had a full and entertaining life, indeed. Having grown up in the Mississippi Delta, the Birthplace of the Blues, Paul s interest in music flourished and would expand into a wide range of sounds--from classical to classic rock, from country to bluegrass, from big band to jazz. He has been influenced by it all. The first concert he attended was the Beatles in 1966, and from that moment, Paul knew what he wanted to do. Live music was where it was happening, and by hook or by crook, he was going to be involved. Paul eventually would meet Ronnie Van Zant and the Lynyrd Skynyrd band. No one could guess at the time that Paul s fate would be to befriend this legendary band and, a long time down the road, to actually tour with the survivors of the 1977 plane crash. He was witness to and, often times, a participant in the antics chronicled here. Paul went on to tour with other artists such as Bad Company, the Marshall Tucker Band, 38 Special, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Paul Rodgers, the Barefoot Servants, and Michael Peterson. He spent a dozen years, on and off, with Billy Ray Cyrus. There are stories within this book about all of them. This is the Gospel According to Abraham. Seller Inventory # APC9780999247914
