41 Years Ago The Skynyrd Plane Crashed

In 1977 I was only 8 years old, but I remember it well! Star Wars was in theaters, Happy Days was a hit on TV, Heeeey, Elvis died in August and on October 20th The Plane carrying Lynyrd Skynyrd crashed. Crew member Dean Kilpatrick and band members Ronnie Van Zant and Steve and Cassie Gaines all lost their lives. It would be a full decade before the band would tour again.
