Sadness for Southern Rock - Founding Lynyrd Skynyrd Guitarist Gary Rossington Passes at 71


March 6, 2023

Southern rock pioneer and a founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd Gary Rossington has passed at age 71.

Gary Rossington's contribution to southern rock was massive, fueled by his crunching riffs from his Gibson axes. His amazing slide work on Freebird alone is enough to etch home deeply in the southern rock forever. Rossington, along with ax-mate Allen Collins, laid the cornerstone for the southern rock that was to come with their twin guitar attack.

From 1964 and his first jams with Ronnie Van Zandt until his passing, Gary Rossington was rocking hard surviving the 1977 plane crash to continue on with the formation of the Rossington Collins Band, right through the most recent tour dates. He rocked hard!

Details of Rossington's passing have not been made available. Please join KnuckleBonz in wishing best wishes to Garry Rossington's family and friends as well as the extended Skynyrd Family...

Rock in Peace Gary Rossington...
