Remembering the beautiful Cassie Gaines pictured below with her brother Steve Gaines on this day of her birth in...
Lynyrd Skynyrd "Street Survivors" (1977). The original cover featured a photograph of the band, particularly Steve Gaines, engulfed in flames. The original came out three days before their plane ran out of fuel and crashed near Baton Rouge, killing Gaines, Ronnie Van Zant, and Cassie Gaines along with three crew members. Out of respect for the deceased, MCA Records withdrew the controversial cover and replaced it with a similar image without the flames (actually the back cover photo from the original album cover.) The "Flame" cover is somewhat more desirable to possess.

19 years ago today Allen Collins died from pneumonia at 37 years old after surviving the fatal plane crash of 1977 that killed Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Allen was one of Lynyrd Skynyrd founding members & lead guitarist, He co wrote many of the bands hits with late frontman Ronnie Van Zant.
GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY RONNIE !! R.I.P. WE MISS YOU !! Ronnie Van Zant was born on January 15, 1948 in Jacksonville, Florida. He was the oldest son of six children (3 sisters and 2 brothers - musicians Donnie and Johnny). Ronnie attended Lee High School in Jacksonville with fellow band members Gary Rossington and Allen Collins. They soon formed what would become Lynyrd Skynyrd. At the height of their fame, on October 20, 1977, their chartered plane crashed. Ronnie was killed along with band members Steve Gaines and his sister Cassie. His signature songs are "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama". (7 Fotos)
Best prezzie, thanks to my Bruv and sister in law Cool mutha of a Tee, Showco worn on stage during 1977 by the legends Ronnie Van Zant & Steve Gaines. :-)
To all the guitar players out there give the 1st solo in Sweet Home Alabama a try - Steve Gaines was one *** of a guitar player - 4 hours and I think I finally got it - it was freakin tough to get the phrasing just right to make it work - Steve Gaines was the strat player with Lynyrd Skynyrd - he died in the plane crash that also took the lives of Ronnie Van Zant, lead singer and song writer for Skynyrd, and Steve's sister Cassie who was one of the background singers with the Honkettes who were part of the Lynyrd Skynyrd band - next is the 2nd solo - it is so much fun being a lead guitarist - maybe time to switch to bass :) !

It hard to believe it was 35 years ago that Lynyrd Skynyrd perished in the plane crash. And I do agree with the author that the best was yet to come of them. Steve Gaines was a great guitar player, and I think they would have done some great things had they had lived.

Gonna stop by where Ronnie's body rest on the way home..I wore my fingers to the bone learning Allen Collins licks and Ronnie's tattooed on my arm. Those guys are Gods to me. I'm speechless really.
Lynyrd Skynyrd coming to riverbend? *scough* it's not the same without Steve Gaines and Ronnie can zant!
We compiled some nice quotes from reviews of 'Hubris, Inc.'  Capped off with Terrorizer, Metal Maniacs, and Blabbermouth... we thought we'd share them.   Thanks all of you for supporting us so strongly.  AngerAs Art don’t care about any cages or leashes and at times their songs seem tobe leading the band rather than they other way around. That barely containedchaos, that madness didn’t appeal to me on the first few spins, but slowly andsteadily, you’ll be drawn into the world of founder Steve Gaines, who has quitea few tricks up his sleeve. The metal veteran might serve up old school metal,but there’s a deeper layer to his music, and at times it almost crosses over to80s hardcore, and its development that makes ‘Hubris Inc.’ the bands best albumby far. Martijn Welzen – Mass Movement Magazine (UK)   Anger asArt; one of the more reliable thrash bands active on the scene since 2006.

Had to share this. For those who don't know who this is, this is Steve Gaines from Miami Ok. He was and still is a legend around this area. His sister, Cassie, was a back-up singer for Lynyrd Skynyrd. When Ed King (Sweet Home Ala. riff) quit, they started looking for a replacement. They auditioned Leslie West (Mountain) and some others, but couldn't find a 'fit'. Cassie kept telling them about Steve, so they finnaly gave him a shot. This was before I came to Joplin, so I didn't know of him. But by coincidence, I was at the show where he 'tried out' with them. They had him play slide guitar on 'T for Texas' if you can imagine. Of course he smoked it, and the rest is history! Unfortunatly, he and Cassie died with Ronnie VanZandt in the plane crash. :-( I have friends down here with cassettes of him and Cassie from the late 60s into the 70s, and of his band Crawdad. I promise you, they are still very much alive down here! If you've read this, then thanks for hangin'! I know that Jeff McGuire new who this wa ...

Garry Rossington, Steve Gaines, and Allen Collins were easily the 3 guitarist of their time.
Allen Collins was so cool, as was/is Ed King, Gary Rossington, Steve Gaines, RVZ, The Honkettes, Artimus Pyle etc..
OK Music people - an alien lands here and says, "I've got to take a sample of the best music back to my planet. Give me 7 CDs to take home - 7 is all I can carry." Here is a starting point, what should be changed? Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin (Blues traditions, hard-rock break through) The Beatles - Help (The influence begins, +Yesterday) Lynyrd Skynyrd - Street Survivors (Southern kings, got to have Steve Gaines in there) The Who - Who's Next (Rock anthems) Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic (A truly new sound) Van Halen - Van Halen (Guitar greatness) Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run (American story telling) (Wow, no Eagles, Allman Bros., Hendrix, Yardbirds, ZZ Top, Boston, Kansas, Deep Purple, Stones, Motley Crue, Metallica, Queen, Rush, Heart, Clapton, Stevie Ray, Aretha, Kiss, Ramones, Def Leppard, White album or Sgt. Pep, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Elton John, or Green Day who was probably the only band from the last 10 years to be considered.) So, changes? Shy Tuna Lee Hill Andrew R Doss Danny M. Miller
One of my favorite all time favorite speakers that we have ever had come speak to us at First Baptist Woodstock is Ken Ham because what he had to speak on was so relevant on how we can defend our faith instead of giving into evolution . We've also had some other speakers that I have absolutely loved we've had David Platt , Junior Hill , Steve Gaines , Michael Catt , Franklin Graham , Tony Nolan . These guys are awesome .
True Lynyrd Skynyrd story of plane crash On Thursday, October 20, 1977, simply several days after the discharge of Avenue Survivors, and several dates into their for the most part efficacious featuring tour to date, Lynyrd Skynyrd's sanctioned Convair 240 advanced mechanical challenges close to the close of their flight from Greenville, South Carolina to LSU in Implement Rouge, Louisiana.

Track of the Day Lynyrd Skynyrd Song: Tuesday's Gone Album: Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd In 1972, Ronnie Van Sant, Allen Collins, Gary Rosington, Johnny Colt, Leon Wilkeson and Robert Burns formed Lynyrd Skynyrd. The name of the band is a mocking tribute to their school gym teacher, Leonard Skinner, who was renowned for sending students to the principals office for having long hair. Their eponymous debut album, which featured their hit song Freebird, put the band on the map and led to them supporting The Who on their Quadrophenia tour in 1973. Their second album aptly named “Second Helping” came a year later and featured the track Sweet Home Alabama, one of the most recognisable rock songs in popular music history. 1977 proved to be a year of all-time highs and lows for the band. In the midst of their most successful headlining tour yet, an unfathomable and tragic event occurred when their airplane ran out of fuel and crashed. Members Ronnie Van Zant, Burn replacement Steve Gaines and Cass ...

"Faith comes through hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ." Romans 10:17 "Truly, Truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed our of death into life."

35 years ago today was Lynyrd Skynyrd's infamous plane crash that killed Ronnie Van Zandt, Steve Gaines, and Cassie Gaines. Currently, there's a band named Lynyrd Skynyrd doing shows around the country, but guitarist Gary Rossington is the only original member left after keyboardist Billy Powell died in 2009. Drummer Artimus Pyle is still living, but not part of the current touring lineup, and guitarist Ed King has a heart condition and thus cannot tour. Other members (Allen Collins, Leon Wilkerson) have also passed on.
Today is the 35 th anniversary of the plane crash that took the lives of Lynyrd Skynyrd singer Ronnie VanZant , guitarist Steve Gaines and singer Cassie Gaines . RIP

Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines (along with Gaines' sister, Cassie) of Lynyrd Skynyrd died in a Gillsburg, Mississippi plane crash---1977.
35 years ago today Cassie Gaines, Steve Gaines, and Ronnie Van Zant were killed in a plane crash. Ill be playing Skynyrd this afternoon.
Ronnie Van Zant, Lead Singer Steve Gaines, Guitarist Cassie Gaines, Vocalist (Gaines’ sister) Dean Kilpatrick, Assistant Road Manager Walter Wiley McCreary, Pilot Willian john Gray, Co-pilot Before the wreck, there was no hysteria. The ‘plane was completely quiet. No one was freaking out. … I felt at that moment that everyone was speaking to their concept, whatever it was, of God. Artimus Pyle, drummer, 1977. It was early Thursday evening when the crash happened. News didn't travel that fast on a college campus. Saturday morning breakfast with some buddies at the the Carolina Coffee Shop and I decided to buy a newspaper (Larry and Duane's conversation must have been a bit slow that morning). What a shock for a southern boy to learn about the demise of some of his musical heroes. October 20th 1977.
It's great when you find a band or artist whose music can actually inspire you, or make you feel better about any given situation...or maybe They are just *** good and they write real down home music.Well that band for me is Lynyrd Skynyrd.Always will be.And today, In 1977, the freebird went down an took Ronnie, Steve and Cassie away from us. Today I will be Remembering what once was the greatest American band who set foot across this land...We miss them all even who didn't pass in the crash...and today is a day to remember them all. Allen Collins, Steve Gaines, Ronnie Van Zant, Leon Wilkinson, Billy Powell, Cassie Gaines.May you all rest in peace.Lynyrd Skynyrd for life.

Hi , On October 21st I was in the Army at Fort Sill , Oklahoma . It was a beautiful Sunny Blue Sky Day it was allso a off duty day . I walked across the compound towards where a radio was playing Purple Haze and when it ended they came on with news of the Rock Band Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crashing in the early evening of October 20th , Taking the lives of Ronnie Van Zant , Cassie Gaines , Dean Kirkpatrick , Steve Gaines & Pilots Walter McCreary & William Gray . I'd heard news cast of people in bands dying before and feeling bad about hearing it , but what made this so shocking with me I knew their music and Who they were . I was a fan of theirs , and unlike others who I'd heard of I felt a Loss I'd had only felt with Family and Friends that had passed . What brought me to Like & Love them so much was the Honesty & Truth of their music as if Ronnie and the band were just speaking to me , They had an Energy & Electricity in their performance that you could feel came from Their Heart , Their Soul & Their Life ...

The October 20, 1977, plane crash that decimated Lynyrd Skynyrd shattered an American musical dream. Less than a week after the release Street Survivors,of one of the band's best albums, guitarist Steve Gaines was dead; vocalist Cassie Gaines was dead; lead singer, songwriter and founder of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ronnie VanZant was dead. Also killed were the plane's flight crew and longtime friend and manager, Dean Kilpatrick. The rest of the band and crew lay in hospitals with life-altering injuries. Lynyrd Skynyrd was dead.

Dr. Watchdog Gives a Tithing Alternative to Pastors as We Enter the Season of Tithing Sermons: "I want each of you to take plenty of time to think it over, and make up your own mind what you will give. That will protect you against sob stories and arm-twisting. God loves it when the giver delights in the giving." (II Cor 9:7) - October is the month when we see the absolute worst tithing sermons. Of course Perry Noble and Steve Gaines are tithing preachers for all seasons, but October is on average the worst month for pastors misusing scripture to deliver the anti-gospel bad news that God has cursed you, your family, and your checking account because your offering each week does not equal 0.1 times your gross income. So I want to try to help this year. I would like to take a proactive approach, to help prevent the sheep-beatings and scripture twisting BEFORE it starts, rather than having to blog again this year about pastors threatening church members with curses from on high. Pastors, because I care, here ...

Today in 2000.Some Scumbag Vandals desecrate the graves of Lynyrd Skynyrd's Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Van Zant's casket was exposed, but not opened, while some of Gaines' ashes was spilled. ps Happy Birthday to Little Eva, Gary Busey, n my twin nephews Anthony n Charlie.
KZMZ It was on this day in 2000 that vandals broke into the tombs of Ronnie Van Zandt and Steve Gaines (both died in the 1977 plane crash). Ronnie's casket was pulled out and dropped on the ground. The bag containing Steve's ashes was ripped open and partially spilled. After the incident their remains were moved elsewhere but their original (now empty) mausoleums are still there for fans to visit.
