They are an American band who interestingly site as their influences, as the UK bands Beatles, Rolling stones and the Yarbirds. As their fame grew at at their peak they were hit with a disaster, when a few of their members died in a plane crash in 1977 halting their promising careers.

In 1987 a tribute band was formed for a reunion tour with Johnny Van Zant, Ronnie’s younger brother, at the helm, and continues to record music today. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2006.
