Dixie Chicken is the third studio album by the American rock band Little Feat, released in 1973. (see 1973 in music). The artwork for the front cover was by illustrator Neon Park.

The album is considered their landmark album with the title track as their signature song that helped further define the Little Feat sound. This was augmented by two additional members (guitarist Paul Barrere and percussionist Sam Clayton) added to make the more complete and familiar lineup that continued until their 1979 breakup. Bassist Kenny Gradney was brought in to replace original bassist Roy Estrada. This new lineup radically altered the band's sound, leaning toward New Orleans R&B/funk.

"Little Piece of Dixie"  Blackberry Smoke

<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/YeFaX6lOGGk?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/YeFaX6lOGGk?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

The members of Southern Rock quintet Blackberry Smoke are no strangers to hard work. Playing up to 250 dates each year, the guys are on the road more often than not, and they’ve seen tangible results of their labor. The band has toured with and befriended idols such as The Marshall Tucker Band, ZZ Top (with Billy Gibbons jamming with the band on a Florida stop), Lynyrd Skynyrd and George Jones. The band was even asked to play for Jones on his 80th birthday, not long after the country legend turned in a guest appearance on the band’s sophomore album. They’ve toured Europe thrice over, and had their songs featured in video games (EA Sports’ NASCAR 08) and films (Swing Vote), as well.

 Mixing elements of gospel, bluegrass, arena rock, soul and more than a touch of outlaw country, Blackberry Smoke has earned a passionate fanbase that continues to grow as the band itself evolves. The band is as blue collar as the bandanas its members wear.

Guitarist Dan Toler, best known for his work with the Allman Brothers, died today in Manatee County, Florida, according to Ticket Sarasota. Toler had been battling ALS – also known as Lou Gehrig's disease – and was unable to play guitar or speak for his last few months. He was 65.

Toler joined the Dickey Betts and Great Southern band in the late Seventies and moved to the Allman Brothers with his brother David "Frankie" Toler and Betts. Toler played with the Allman Brothers on their 1979 comeback album Enlightened Rogues and was in the band for their next two records, 1980's Reach for the Sky and 1981's Brothers of the Road.

Dan and Frankie Toler then spent much the 1980s playing with the Gregg Allman Band, touring and recording I'm No Angel in 1986 and Just Before the Bullets Fly in 1988. Toler rejoined Betts' Great Southern band in 2002 and later created the Townsend Toler Band with John Townsend. He then joined the Renegades of Southern Rock and wrapped his career with Toler Tucci Band, along with Chaz Trippy from the Gregg Allman Band.

After his brother's death in June 2011, Toler announced he had ALS that August. No funeral plans have been made yet.

Number 47:  "That Smell"  Lynyrd Skynyrd

<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/VAMTXnh2O9M?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/VAMTXnh2O9M?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

"That Smell" is a song by the southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. Written by Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Allen Collins, it was released in 1977 on the album Street Survivors. At the time the song was written, the band had been drinking and doing many different drugs.[1] Van Zant had said that he started drinking heavily to relieve the pressure of performing in front of large audiences.[1]

The song's name comes from the fact that there is a saying among heroin users that the smell of cooking it brings you right back to shooting it. [2]

Van Zant's inspiration for the song was the increasing reckless indulgences of the band members culminating in the evening when guitarist Gary Rossington got drunk and high and survived the crash of his new car into an oak tree along Mandarin Road in Jacksonville, Florida[1] (where the band was founded). Van Zant was thus inspired to write the song as a warning about the consequences of careless overuse of drugs and alcohol. Van Zant said, "I had a creepy feeling things were going against us, so I thought I'd write a morbid song (as a warning)."[1] The lyrics cautioned that "tomorrow might not be here for you", and that "the smell of death surrounds you". Three days after the album was released, the band was devastated by a plane crash killing several members including Van Zant.

It would be funnier if the song title was actually a reference to Jacksonville. At least the Jacksonville of the 70s, with the pulp mills. I'm sure someone's made that joke before.

It is an odd phenomena that some people see feel their own death approaching.  Obviously RVZ could feel his.  And as he points out to us -- all he can do is "write about it".
