Neil Young in an interview said that he actually liked Sweet Home Alabama, that he was friends with some of the Skynyrds, and that the whole "feud" was very tongue-in-cheek on both sides.No more griping about the lack of Sweet Home Alabama, it's on the CD (stereo) and DVD (mono) anyway. That track although great has been overplayed over the years and they didn't have to trash Neil Young, I love his "Southern Man". I had almost forgotten about the other great stuff Lynyrd Skynyrd did, focus on that people! A couple tracks were only so so surround but the rest were great. A real bargain. Hopefully it sells so well that more similar releases will be forthcoming.
Several years ago I was on a flight from Jacksonville, Florida (I can't remember the destination, but likely heading north towards home). One of the Skynyrds (I don't know which one, but I remember his hat) was a few rows ahead of me ... yes, in the Economy section. I didn't notice him until a crowd started to gather to ask him for autographs and photos, and I overheard them say who he was. What impressed me was the fact that he genuinely seemed humbled by the attention. He was polite and gracious, and he did his best to accomodate everyone. I wish I knew which Skynyrd he was, because he seemed like a real nice guy.
