A least two of them have the age creds to be original Skynyrd fans

If I'm not mistaken, and I am old enough to remember Lynyrd Skynyrd when they were nobodies. I believe they played at GCC around 1973. Can anybody verify that one?

FWIW, I blew a few paychecks at Leonard Skinner's bar and pool hall, Atlantic Beach FL. when I was stationed there in the early 80's.

I don't recall Lynyrd Skynyrd playing at GCC in the vicinity of 1973. The Student Activities Concert Board had attempted to book ZZ Top in 1973. The rider for their (otherwise reasonable) contract was cost prohibitive. They wanted (in addition to a barload of alcohol) a backup sound and lighting system (ridiculous). Following the announcement that ZZ Top would not be booked several students started independent drives to substitute Lynyrd Skynyrd or REO Speedwagon. At the same time the Black Student Union was lobbying the board to book a band that would appeal to Black students. In the end the board booked three bands for two shows: Aerosmith and James Montgomery Blues band played one show and Earth, Wind and Fire played the other. The following year The Beach Boys were booked.
