 MSN Music - Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
Truly, few bands have ever been as beloved and successful -- and mythological -- as Lynyrd Skynyrd, yet here it is, 2006, and they're only now being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame -- nearly a decade after their eligibility.
The Southern-rock movement was waning, and Ronnie seemed to be positioning the band to be viewed more as an American rock and roll band to distinguish Skynyrd from the explosion of punk ignited by the U.K.'s Sex Pistols.
By addressing the contradictions that exist in their music and the phenomenon it spawned, I hoped that perhaps people like me would be able to better appreciate the vast differences between what the songs say and how they've been interpreted through the years by both their fans and detractors.

The boomers were the experts on classic rock.  Classic rock is dead.  To say it continued into the eighties is to be blind to the MTV revolution that truly defined those years.
Rock changed a generation.  You had to listen to the album to know which way the wind blew.  Now, you like what you’re hearing?  FINE!  But that doesn’t make it classic/memorable.  That’s like saying "Running With Scissors" is in the league of "Gone With The Wind".  That’s like debating "Jackass" vis a vis "The Godfather".
So when Johnny Ramone asked Seymour Stein (president of the hall of fame, and president of the record company that first signed the band when I brought it to him in 1975) why I wasn’t there the night the Ramones were inducted, he told Johnny that I preferred to go to the opera.
