Today is the fortieth anniversary of the plane crash that claimed the lives of Ronnie Van Zant and five others associated with the rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Rolling Stone magazine remembers the tragedy that altered music history.
A number of interesting books have been published about the band over the years, including Lynyrd Skynyrd: Remembering the Free Birds of Southern Rock by Gene Odom.
Be sure to commemorate the anniversary by cranking the stereo, having a nice adult beverage, and reading one of the good biographies of the band.
