    Ed King, SG player, co-writer of "Sweet Home Alabama" and other songs on Skynyrd's first three albums, has died in his Nashville home. He was a heart transplant recipient in 2011, considered himself living on borrowed time, and was living life to the fullest. More in his official obit, HERE.

    Sha la la wow I had forgotten how good that song was! Plus I didn't realize he was lead guitar in Strawberry Alarm Clock thanks Angel for posting that link.

    Yikes those outfits in the video you had to have some guts to style those!

    The three guitar attack in Lynyrd Skynyrd dang that had to be fun to be a part of those live performances ...
