    Death insurance life insurance?

    A cold water heater, a HOT water heater?


    The band LYNYRD SKYNYRD..... " Leonard Skinnard".....especially bad when done by DJ type of people that should know better. They even made a fucking album

    titled pronounced " LYNYRD SKYNYRD", so it must have pissed them off to be called by the wrong name !

    I have a similar problem with my very simple name, more on that later...

    As for that band, I have literally never spoken their name and have not heard the name (only read it in brief mentions) so I wouldn't know how they want it pronounced.

    It's been a while since they were popular. 1977 was when a large portion of the band died, so you can't fault people nowadays for not being familiar. They're not The Beatles or anything.

    They weren't quite the Beatles or Stones, but not exactly a one hit wonder either. Their lyrics had a lot of meaning

    One of the best concerts I ever saw was Skynyrd at red rocks in Denver, mainly because of the venue, nothing like that place on a warm summer night. I have seen the band at least 5 times, but all after the plane crash.

    I was at summer festival in Orchard park N.Y. 1974. James Gang, Lynyrd Skynyrd & Emerson Lake Palmer. The lead singer made it a point to over pronounce their name L Y N Y R D... S K Y N Y R D. I remember during their last song (free bird?) all the members of the band pick up a guitar and played so like 7 guitars wailing at one time. Great show.

    Why is it called a foul pole? If a ball hits it, it's a fair ball

    Doug, did you know that Leonard Skinnerd was Ronnie Zandt's phys ed teacher. He was real strict and the band members that went to the same High School all hated him. So they named their band after him and changed the spelling.

    This is correct, they played a lot of small honkey tonks in the south in the early 70's. Legend has it that Ronnie got in to quite a few scraps after the show with any hecklers that might have had a little to much whiskey

    back to the band:




    In the summer of 1964, teenage friends Ronnie Van Zant, Bob Burns, Allen Collins, Gary Rossington, and Larry Junstrom formed the earliest incarnation of the band in Jacksonville, Florida as My Backyard. The band then changed its name to The Noble Five.[5] The band used different names before using One Percent during 1968.[5]



    In 1969, Van Zant sought a new name. The group settled on Leonard Skinnerd, a mocking tribute to P.E. teacher Leonard Skinner at Robert E. Lee High School.[6]Skinner was notorious for strictly enforcing the school's policy against boys having long hair.[7] Rossington dropped out of school, tired of being hassled about his hair.[8] The more distinctive spelling "Lynyrd Skynyrd" was being used at least as early as 1970. Despite their high school acrimony, the band developed a friendlier relationship with Skinner in later years, and invited him to introduce them at a concert in the Jacksonville Memorial Coliseum.[9] Skinner also allowed the band to use a photo of his Leonard Skinner Realty sign for the inside of their third album.[10]
