Free Bird 45 by Lynyrd Skynrd

Free Bird

“Frre Bird” by Lynyrd Skynrd has ben a radio staple for almost 40 years. Not bad for a single that reached number 19 on the BILBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart during late 1974. A live version of the song reached number 38 during 1978.

It as part ballad and part up-tempo guitar solo by lead guitarist Gary Rossington.

Among its honors have been: 1) Rock And Roll Hall of Fame’s list of one of The 500 Songs That Shaped Rock And Roll. 2) Number three on Guitar World’s list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Solos. 3) Number 193 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. 4) Number 26 on VH1’s list of Greatest Hard Rock Songs.

And my respone to that list —- Can’t argue!
