WE PAY TRIBUTE TO THE LEGACY OF LYNYRD SKYNYRD WITH THIS DAVE LAWRENCE CLASSIC INTERVIEW PODCAST YOU CAN LISTEN TO ON-DEMAND ALL MONTH LONG IN THE FEBRUARY ISSUE.
Last month we wrapped up a two-part feature honoring the memory of Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, who died suddenly last fall, with a two month interview flashback featuring fellow bandmate Billy Cox. Now that theme sadly continues.
Lynyrd Skynyrd original member keyboardist Billy Powell has suddenly passed away, and it made me think we could celebrate his life with a CLASSIC INTERVIEW PLAYER feature starring another Lynyrd Skynyrd legend who has himself passed away. Hughie Thomasson was not only in Skynyrd, but also The Outlaws. The interview is from a spring 2003 time I got to speak with Hughie as Skynyrd were doing the Vicious Cycle era. Unfortunately, Hughie passed away in 2007.
To pay tribute to the monster keyboardist Billy Powell of Skynyrd who has now died, we have a very special February issue: in addition to the interview, over a dozen incredible, enjoy live, blistering, mind-numbing videos spanning the entire Lynyrd Skynyrd timeline, with Billy Powell through the years at his best in concert and raging, and, burning simply ferocious Outlaws performances, as well. Also, a Hughie Thomasson slideshow, interview background / context details, links, & more.
Join me all month long for the February issue of the CLASSIC INTERVIEW PLAYER with late Lynyrd Skynyrd / Outlaws guitarist and vocalist Hughie Thomasson.
