Lynyrd Skynyrd - Call Me The Breeze

Lynyrd Skynyrd needs no introduction, and the "Is Southern Rock actually Country" will get no attention here.  Instead there's just one of the great motorcycling songs ever.  And why do we skip over these questions?  Because they don't make any sense, as this entire episode of CMT's "Crossroads" with Lynyrd Skynyrd and Montgomery Gentry shows.  Pigeon hole the music at your own risk.  "Call Me The Breeze" opens the show and "All Night Long" rocks it out (starting around 31:00 in the video - don't miss the guitar wars in this one).



Rockin' and rollin' all night long, baby.

Good stuff, and it's nice to see Rickey Medlocke of Blackfoot fame again, but for me Skynyrd ceased to be after the plane crash.

Needs no introduction to those of us who live in Alabama.

Southern rock is a hell of a lot closer to country than that crap they're foisting on us anymore. Waylon and Willie both did covers of the Allman Brothers' "Midnight Rider" that were pretty close to the original, and I sure didn't scoff at 'em. I always thought Southern rock and the Outlaw country movement were at least first cousins, if not outright brothers.
