Skynyrd fan found in phone book |

"Where's Bernie There are times when you come across a discovery so colossal, so monumental that you have to drop everything you're doing and check it out. This occurred the other day, and it was in - of all places - the phone book. That's where I found the following name: Leonard Skynard. I kid you not. Granted, the spelling is different from the legendary Southern rock band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, but I knew it couldn't possibly be a coincidence. So, I dropped everything I was doing. That's right, I dropped ... I dropped - OK, so I wasn't doing anything."

Yep, very excited about that!

Goddamn, I love me some DBT, but even now when you see Jagger and Richards swagger onstage, it's just hard to beat the rock and roll vibe they put off. They are just the epitome of all that is rock and roll. Even in that brief trailer, the guitars are just basic shithouse blues played with enough carelessness to push all the soul you'd ever want right into your ears and down to your feet.

What the fuck am I talking about?

Yer talking the Rock, Jez... and I hear ya!
