there is a lynyrd skynyrd tribute album coming out. i’m actually really excited to hear this, as blues traveler will be doing “freebird”, the disco biscuits will be doing “gimme three steps”, and big head todd and the monsters will be doing “sweet home alabama”. the album will also feature yonder mountain string band, moe. with john hiatt, particle, galactic, north mississippi allstars, les claypool, drive-by truckers, and gov’t mule (possibly the most appropriate for their southern-rock style). the album drops on october 5.
