Say there RandallT,, Thanks for you playing this bio.This is a bit better
than vh1 Classic’s Behind The Music. I wish you can some how edited the two
bios together with clips from the Free Bird Movie as a better bio video
like The Doobbie Brothers Listen To The Music video. I wish Judy Van Zant
would put their April ‘ 75 and March ‘ 76 shows from SF,CA- WinterLand
Ballroom together on a long dvd video like she did with Free Bird & Tribute
Tour ’87-’88 video. Peace.

Wow this cut’s to the bone. I grew up with the music of this band. Watching

David Lee says:

A sad day in Jacksonville in 77′. Us kids at Andrew Jackson was abit
sad….sad day.My dad delivered the mail at Riverside at the studio and
talked to Mr. VanZandt a few days before the tour…….last time I saw
Billy was at American Music,he was expressing his concern for Gary Smalley
who had cancer. He was always a class act when I met him.

brad allen says:

Nice job, guys. RIP to those who’ve gone before us.

glenn taylor says:

Starting around 18:45 is without a doubt one of the best moments of any
rock documentary that I have ever seen. The combination of DBT’s ” Angels
and Fuselage” with the band members telling the story of the plane crash is
one of the most incredibly moving pieces ever put together. Thanks for
posting, I have been searching for this one.

OLDBEAR123456 says:

My band.

jeffro james says:

“And I was yellin’ for Dean, and he came over and threw that door off a me”

OLDBEAR123456 says:

I love my band.

Corey Ames says:

they have a VH1 Behind the Scenes the story on how Ronnie died is
Different! they said that he got ejected out of the plane thrown about

Lorax says:

A brief candle, both ends burning
An endless mile, a bus wheel turning
A friend to share a lonesome time
A handshake and a sip of wine
Say it loud and let it ring
That we’re all a part of everything
The future, present and the past
Fly on proud bird, you’re free at last.

-C. Daniels

Richard Vert says:

The country music of today is what we called southern rock in the 70’s..
The “new country” wave that has swept America is nothing new at all . It’s
just marketed as new.
