We love good old-fashioned southern rock and wondered who the original Lynyrd Skynyrd band members were. After all, they created an unforgettable sound entrenched in blues, rock, and country. So, who were these guys? Let’s find out!
Original Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer, Bob Burns, helped form the band in 1964. The young band’s teenagers first started practicing in Burn’s garage. Burns laid the pace for the famous songs Free Bird and Sweet Home Alabama. He was exhausted from touring and left the band in 1975, and Artimus Pyle replaced him. Burns wasn’t aboard the fatal 1977 plane crash.
