Skynyrd's come a long way, if memory serves, (that's questionable about the 70's) I seem to remember that they supported Carter.
They did on the CD "Freebird: the Movie". "Mr Carter's got the Answer"
"I hope Neil Young will remember, Southern Man don't need him around anyhow."
When I first heard that Lynyrd Skynrd line in 1975(?), I realized I wasn't a liberal anymore. Because at the time, I thought Neil Young was a pompous ass, insinuating he was better than the entire South with his conceited elitist song "Southern Man."
I still hate Neil Young whenever I hear that song, and I aint even from the South (although my mom is).
you gotta remember, though, Charlie Daniels supported Carter as well, and I don't think many now would question his stance.
Yes but that was 1976. The group has changed since then most of the members from that year are not with the group, either dead or retired. Those who are left are born again having gone through the life they lead. They no longer are about dinking drugs and wild parties.
