“Arguably, it can be said that [Lynyrd Skynyrd] is the quintessential American rock band. The epitome of Southern rock music, Skynyrd does not offer high-concept gloss. Instead, since its emergence from the Jacksonville, Fla. music scene, Skynyrd has consistently spoken about the harsh humanity facing the American everyman.”
Riptide Music Group has signed legendary writer/guitarist/singer Rickey Medlocke whose writing and fiery guitar playing can be heard on the new Lynyrd Skynyrd release Last Of A Dyin’ Breed. Medlocke is a 16 year veteran of the band and former front man of Blackfoot.
Skynyrd has recorded an album that continues to build on the legacy that began over 35 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida. This is the kind of record guaranteed to feed the needs of the multi-generational Skynyrd Nation. For the passionate, longtime fans of the band, this is Skynyrd at the top of their game, complete with instantly memorable songs, more hooks than a tackle box, and a blistering three-guitar attack at full power with some of the bluesiest, gritty slide guitar to date.
