Lynyrd Skynyrd- One More From the Road- the late Gary Rossington

In September 1976, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Atlanta’s venerable Fox Theater each needed a minor miracle. Performing over three hundred shows on 1975’s notorious “Torture Tour” had original Lynyrd Skynyrd members dropping like flies. Three things were evident: America’s hyped bicentennial was entering the history books even as the wrecking ball was heading for the Fox Theater; a live “best of” discounted price double album by Peter Frampton earlier that year was re-writing the record books; and Lynyrd Skynyrd was selling more concert tickets than copies of their diminished ranks studio album “Gimme Back My Bullets”. The band needed a stop-gap recording that could capture their lightning in a bottle live show, and the Fox Theater needed a lightning rod which could make saving it a cause celebre. Original co-founder the late guitarist Gary Rossington joined me here In the Studio for the tale behind “One More from the Road”.

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band- Night Moves

“We did two hundred sixty-five shows that year 1975,” says Bob Seger with a mixture of pride and amazement, as explanation on why it was so hard to find the solitary time necessary to write well-crafted songs prior to “Night Moves”. The double disc “Live Bullet”, recorded in Fall 1975 and released six months later, provided that precious period…by October 1976 with Night Moves containing “Rock and Roll Never Forgets”,”Main Street”,”The Fire Down Below”,”Come to Poppa”, and the title song which Bob calls “…a little novelette.”

But don’t go looking for it in the 2019 ZZ Top rockumentary film “That Little Ol’ Band from Texas” .That otherwise well-done pastiche of just some of the chapters in this colorful trio’s fifty year telenovella implied that all meaningful recording by ZZ Top wrapped at the conclusion of “Eliminator” way back in 1983. Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard join me here In the Studio  on the thirty-fifth anniversary of “Sleeping Bag”,”Stages”,”Woke Up with Wood”, and “Planet of Women”.
