In Memoriam: Ronnie Van Zant

I got a strange outstanding back-road history with Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Growing up in a small town peppered like a gob of mud on the buckle of The Bible Belt, southern rock is a staple... and southern rock comes first and foremost from the mouth of our dearly departed Ronnie Van Zant, the lead singer of Skynyrd who died on today's date in 1977 in a plane crash in Mississippi.  Here's my portrait for Rock Star Martyr, where Ronnie will be featured today on the anniversary of his death.  Ooh ooh that smell... that smell that surrounds you...
