Legendary Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd appear at the Constant Center tonight. Before they come to wail the blues and rock tunes that made their music part of the American soundtrack, I chatted with member Johnny Van Zant about music, the South and collard greens. Check it:
MV: You have inspired a lot of artists – some of the newer guys include Drive by Truckers and Kings of Leon. Wondering what you thought of those bands and their music.
JVZ: Yeah, there you go. We’ve come a long way in this country. I’m really proud of this country.
Lynrd Skynrd is at the Ted Constant Convocation Center tonight at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $36-$56; call 683-5000 for info.
