Lynyrd Skynyrd Keyboardist Dies, 56

So in honor of Billy Powell, I pose a question. And really think about this.

Which would you rather:

Be able to play Free Bird. On guitar. Perfectly. Like, all the solos.


Go back to 1976 and see Lynyrd Skynyrd play Free Bird LIVE.
In Atlanta.

Think about it.


  1. after much deliberation, I choose seeing skynyrd in '76. while being able to play freebird would be really great a few times, I'm sure my friends would get pretty sick of it after a while and ask me if I can plan anything else. I can't. so sign me up for time travel, I'm ready to go!

  2. '76 has always been a dream of mine. But I'll admit I'd rather be able to play freebird. Only because I would do open mic nights, and actually deliver upon the incessant requests from drunk frat dudes as they yell 'FREEBIRD'. Their popped collars will not block the awesomeness from their ears, twenty times in a row
