www.eagle-rock.com Lynyrd Skynyrd are the ultimate Southern Rock band. Their signature three guitar attack coupled to superb songwriting and massive on stage charisma has rightfully earned them a reputation as one of the greatest live bands of all time. The original band infamously had their career cut short by a disastrous plane crash in 1977 which took the lives of three members plus two of their road crew and seriously injured several others. In 1987 the surviving members reformed the band with Johnny Van Zant taking the place of his brother Ronnie.

Written by lead singer Axl Rose about his then girlfriend Erin Everly (daughter of Everly Brother, Don), ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ sounded like nothing else on the radio when it charted in the late summer of 1988. With Slash’s piercing guitar work and Axl’s gritty vocals to propel it, this hard rocking ballad deservedly hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 several months after it debuted. In the coming years, GNR would release several more classic songs-‘Paradise City,’ ‘You Could Be Mine,’ and ‘November Rain,’ to name a few. However, none would be as successful as their first. And it stills sounds as good today as it did back then.
