(L to R) Allen Collins, Ronnie Van Zant, Gary Rossington
Ronnie Van Zant was the first member of Lynyrd Skynrd I met in spirit. (See blog dated March 21st) After Gary Rossington died, Allen visited me bringing Gary along with him. A soft-spoken Leon Russell has drifted in on occasion. I have not yet met with the spirit of Steve Gaines or his sister Cassie Gaines or Keyboardist Billy Powell. Artimus Pyle is still alive as far as I know.
