On this day, 20 October, in 1977, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s plane crashed.
The plane ran out of fuel near the end of the flight and crashed in a heavily wooded area killing many on board.
Enough band members survived to later continue the band.
The accident came just three days after the release of Street Survivors.
“Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines, along with backup singer Cassie Gaines (Steve’s older sister), assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary, and co-pilot William Gray were killed on impact. Other band members (Collins, Rossington, Wilkeson, Powell, Pyle, and Hawkins), tour manager Ron Eckerman, and several road crew members suffered serious injuries.” Source: Wikipedia
