I've just been informed by my wife that Johnny Tillotson (apparently) performed at a school dance at Englewood High School - possibly the prom - sometime around the late 60s (probably 1967 or 1968).

I guess my mother-in-law was at the dance. She's quite the fan.

Reading about Tillotson got me thinking ...



Ronnie Van Zant needs a place on the "Florida Artists Hall of Fame" wall.

Looks like a fairly easy nomination process:

Who better than the man who makes the whole world sing "Freebird"?

Number 86:  Don't Misunderstand Me:  Rossington Collins Band

<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/UnILPbqBHX8?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/UnILPbqBHX8?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

The Rossington-Collins Band rose from the ashes of Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1979 and released two excellent albums before rock’n roll excess took its toll on both of its founding guitarists and the band broke up in 1982.

In 1979 remaining Lynyrd Skynyrd members had recovered enough to play one off show at The Charlie Daniels Band’s Volunteer Jam. They got enthusiastic response from the crowd, which led to formation of The Rossington – Collins Band.

Skynyrd drummer prior to plane crash, Artimus Pyle was supposed to continue on drums, but his broken leg prior to stepping into the studio forced The Rossington – Collins Band to replace him with Derek Hess. Billy Powell continued on keyboards, as did Leon Wilkeson on bass. Barry Harwood took Steve Gaines’ position on third guitar and to replace Ronnie Van Zant, they hired former 38 Special backup vocalist, Dale Krantz as the lead singer.

Their debut album Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere was for the most part written by Allen Collins and gained good reception from press and fans alike. With hits songs Prime Time and Don’t Misunderstand Me, it peaked #9 at the charts and was eventually certified platinum.

The Rossington - Collins Band rarely played any Skynyrd tunes while on stage, but they ended each performance with instrumental version of Freebird, dedicated to Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines.

Troubled with the passing of his wife in 1980, Allen Collins dove deeper into alcohol and drug fueled downward spiral, forcing the band to cancel several gigs. Dale Krantz’s and Rossington’s newly found love also created friction between him and Allen.

Soon after the release of their sophomore effort, This Is The Way, Rossington – Collins Band broke up. Gary Rossington and Dale Krantz formed Rossington Band and rest of the guys added Randall Hall and Jimmy Daughtery to the line-up and continued under the name Allen Collins Band.

Both of these bands were short-lived and Lynyrd Skynyrd finally reunited in 1987 with Ronnie's younger brother, Johnny Van Zant on vocals

This old town ain't been the same Since this old boys been gone
Lord I still got some good friends But I feel so all alone
All I hear is disco See pretty boys with high heels on
Well, some people sure hate me And police dog me round
Well, the only place I'm welcome Is on the west side of town
Well, I'm on the wanted posters I can't show my face in town, alright

Play this one for south side

Jacksonville, I love you But you don't want me around
 Jacksonville, you raised me And this is where I got my sound
Although I'm your outlaw I still love my hometown, all around

Ahh, this is for the west side boys

This old town ain't been the same Since your native sons been gone
Lord, I still got some old friends But I am so all alone
All I hear is disco See pretty boys with high heels on
Well, you can keep your disco Pretty boys with high heels on

"In Memory of Elizabeth Reed"  Allman Brothers

<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/Wo6NbP0IbOQ?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/Wo6NbP0IbOQ?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

Overview

The original studio recording of "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is the fourth track on the group's 1970 album Idlewild South. Composed by Dickie Betts, it is the first instrumental written by a bandmember. The original Rolling Stone review of Idlewild South said the song "just goes and goes for a stupendous, and unnoticed, seven minutes."[1]

The song is named after a headstone Betts saw at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia,[2] a place frequented by band members in their early days to relax and write songs. Considerable legend has developed about what Betts was doing at the time, some originated by a possibly put-on interview Duane Allman gave Rolling Stone.[3] The cemetery was later memorialized by the band as the final resting spot of both band leader Duane Allman and bassist Berry Oakley.

The Rolling Stone Album Guide called "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" in its original studio incarnation "the blueprint of a concert warhorse, capturing the Allmans at their most adventurous."[4] The New York Times has written that "its written riffs and jazz-ish harmonies [allow] improvisers room."[5] Accordingly, "Elizabeth Reed" has appeared in many Allman Brothers concerts, sometimes running half an hour or more,[6] and on numerous Allman Brothers live albums, but first and most notably on At Fillmore East, which many fans and critics believe is the definitive rendition. In 2007, Rolling Stone named "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" one of its Fifty Best Songs Over Seven Minutes Long[7] – and in giving it Honorable Mention on its 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time list made 2008, Rolling Stone called the At Fillmore East performance "transcendant".[8]

Danny Joe Brown, (August 24, 1951 – March 10, 2005)[1] was a member of the Southern rock group Molly Hatchet, and singer and co-writer of the band's biggest hits from the late 1970s.

He was born in Jacksonville, Florida in 1951 and graduated from Terry Parker High School in 1969.[2] Shortly after graduating, he enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard and was stationed in New York for two years.[2] Once he left the Coast Guard, Brown's focus turned solely to music and joined Molly Hatchet in 1974.

He is best known for writing and singing on such songs as "Flirtin' with Disaster", and "Whiskey Man"; he was also the vocalist on "Dreams I'll Never See", a faster tempoed cover of the Allman Brothers song. The band's sound was immediately recognizable by Brown's distinct voice, a deep, raspy, throaty growl.[2]

Brown left Molly Hatchet in 1980 because of chronic diabetes and pancreatic problems, but soon started his own band, The Danny Joe Brown Band, which released a single studio album in 1981.[3] He later rejoined Molly Hatchet in 1982, only to leave again in 1995 after suffering a stroke. He died at his home in Davie, Florida, at the age of 53, in March 2005. His obituary attributed his death to renal failure, a complication of the diabetes he had since age 19.[1

John Roy "Johnny" Van Zant (born February 27, 1959) is an American musician and the current lead vocalist of Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. He is the younger brother of Lynyrd Skynyrd co-founder and former lead vocalist Ronnie Van Zant and .38 Special founder Donnie Van Zant.

Van Zant performed during the 1970s with his 1st band, The Austin Nickels Band. They later changed their name to The Johnny Van Zant Band releasing their debut solo album, No More Dirty Deals, in 1980. Original members of The Johnny Van Zant Band consisted of Johnny Van Zant on lead vocals, Robbie Gaye, on guitar, Danny Clausman, on bass, Erik Lundgren on lead guitar, Robbie Morris, drums and Joan Hecht (previously Joan Cusumano) and Nancy Henderson on background vocals. Johnny Van Zant released three more solo albums between 1981 and 1985, before taking a break from the music business.

He became lead vocalist for the reunited Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1987, and continues to record and perform with them today. He released another solo album, Brickyard Road, in 1990, which featured the popular title track, which was a #1 hit on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for three weeks. He also records and performs with his brother Donnie as Van Zant since 1998.

In May 2006, less than 1 day before he was to perform at KSAN-FM 107.7 The Bone's Bone Bash 7, Van Zant underwent emergency surgery to have his appendix removed. Treated at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto, California, after reporting pain to a doctor earlier in the day. The incident forced the band to cancel three US shows.[1]

Van Zant is an avid fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He recorded a video, along with remaining members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, that is played at every Jaguars home game on the Everbank Field video board
