Born in 1952, in Jacksonville Florida. In the highschool years, he joined up with a band, but later transfered on all-time most useful musical organization, Lynyrd Skynyrd. He'd many solos, and composed "Free Bird" with Ronnie Van Zant. He's one of the best guitar players of all time, or even the very best. He survived the airplane crash in October of 77, but later got in a horrible car crash which left him paralyzed, and passed away in 90 of problems from the accident. He will permanently be one of the best guitarists ever.
