Sweet Home Alabama


by Lynyrd Skynyrd


Lynyrd Skynyrd History

Judy Van Zant Jenness, the widow of original Skynyrd frontman Ronnie Van Zant, built this rich trove of information on the band's history and legacy. The website design is hideously ugly, but don't let that fool you; there's tons of great stuff here. Make sure to check out the biographies of all the original band members and the collection of old promo photos.

Official Lynyrd Skynyrd Fan Site

The online home for the current version of the band, which sadly still includes only one original member, guitarist Gary Rossington. This is the place to go for current news, tour dates, and merch.

Lynyrd Skynyrd & Neil Young

A Neil Young fansite offers up a thoughtful meditation on the complex relationship between the two rock icons, and what the lyrics of "Sweet Home Alabama" really were all about. A worthwhile read for any fan.
