The Eye of the Acoustic Storm

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted in "The Eye of The Acoustic Storm." Hourly segments of "The Eye" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

In the mid-70's, Southern rock came of age, due in great part to Lynyrd Skynyrd. But tragedy struck in 1977, when a plane carrying the band crashed, killing Ronnie Van Zant, plus Steve Gaines and his sister Cassie.
