Who are Lynyrd Skynyrd?
Southern rock outfit Lynyrd Skynyrd emerged from Jacksonville, FL in the mid-1960s. The band, originally known as My Backyard, spent five years touring small venues under a variety of different monikers and enduring several lineup changes before finally settling on official members and the name Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1969. They released their debut album a few years later in 1973, becoming a commercial success on the strength of hit singles like “Gimme Three Steps,” “Simple Man,” “Tuesday’s Gone,” and “Free Bird,” the latter of which launched them to national stardom. In 1977, the band was struck with unimaginable tragedy when three of its members, including founding members Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines along with his sister, backup singer Cassie Gaines, were killed in in airplane crash. Skynyrd reformed ten years later for a reunion tour, with Ronnie’s brother Johnny Van Zant taking his place as the lead vocalist. The band continues to tour with Johnny as their frontman to this day, along with co-founder Gary Rossington (the band’s sole continuous member), and Rickey Medlocke, who first wrote and recorded with Skynyrd in 1971. Lynyrd Skynyrd has sold more than 28 million records in the US. They have been Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees since 2006.
Who are ZZ Top?
Blues-rock trio ZZ Top emerged in the early 1970s, making their mainstream breakthrough with the release of their third studio album Tres Hombres in 1973. The album entered the Top 10 in the US, characterized by their signature down-and-dirty blues style evident in their hit single “La Grange.” The album’s success served as a sign of things to come for the trio, who would continue to dominate the charts throughout the 1970s and well into the 1980s when they released their best-selling album Eliminator in 1983. ZZ Top has released a total of 15 studio albums to date. Although they are often considered a blues-inspired band, ZZ Top ventured into other territories with their later releases, incorporating elements of new wave, punk, and dance rock via the use of synthesizers. The group has sold over 25 million records in the US alone (50 million worldwide), placing them among the top 100-selling artists in the US. They have earned 11 gold and seven platinum certifications from the RIAA as of 2016 and have been Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees since 2004.
