Simple Man ~ Song Saturday

Song Saturday brings a great chance for me to share some of my favorite songs. I enjoy many types of genres. Depends on what I am doing and my mood of course.

Lynyrd Skynyrd should be a world wide known band. And this song, Simple Man is a favorite for many reasons. My brother always listened to it growing up, so that means I did as well. I was sort of his shadow, only one year younger. I love their music and this is just one of many favorites.

Wikipedia source: Their career was abruptly halted after Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, and backup singer Cassie Gaines were killed in an airplane crash on October 20, 1977. The band re-formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with Ronnie’s brother, Johnny Van Zant, as its lead vocalist. Lynyrd Skynyrd continues to tour and record with co-founder Rossington (being the band’s sole continuous member), Johnny Van Zant, who first wrote and recorded with the band from 1971 to 1972 before his return in 1996.

Lynyrd Skynyrd has sold 28 million records in the United States. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006. In January 2018, Lynyrd Skynyrd announced their farewell tour and are also working on a final studio album. Photo from Wikepdia.

Also, the video on this link is beautiful. The scenes are stunning. Take a listen and let me know what you think.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
