Your story on Lynryd Skynyrd got my attention (Tuesday's Gone). The inconsistencies are many. Ricky Medlocke was nothing more than a session drummer for the band in the early 70's. He never went out on the road with them. He didn't leave Skynryd to start Blackfoot, he never was in the band to begin with. He states it's Gary Rossingtons prerogative who he has in the band. While that part may be true he doesn't have the final say in anything the band does, Judy VanZant Jeness does. It is also a well known fact among the die hards that there must be three original members in the band to call it Lynyrd Skynyrd. Unless Rossington bought out the contract from Allen Collins family it is still the same. You stated that Medlocke joined up with the band after they reconstituted which is also false. The lineup consisted of Gary, Leon, Billy, Artimus, Ed King, Barry Harwood and Jonny Vanzant. Only after Ed got sick did Medlocke join up with the band along with Hughie Thomasson some years later. I have been a fan of this band since they were known as The One Percent Band and have sat down with Ronnies dad Lacy and have spoken to him extensively about the ins and outs of the family and the band. So if you want to know what the actual history is please let me know. I hate to see an article that has so many mistakes in it about a band that I know inside and out. And Medlocke well he's in his own world always has been.
