Like many of you, I woke up to the unfortunate news that the former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer, Bob Burns had passed away at the age of 64. Robert Burns was part of iconic tunes including ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, ‘Gimme Three Steps’, and ‘Free Bird.’ According to the Catersville Patch reports, Burns died Friday night in a single car accident in Cartersville, Georgia. I asked you what your favourite Lynyrd Skynyrd song is and the recurrent answer is undoubtedly, “Free Bird.”
“If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on now
‘Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see.”
Rest In Peace Robert Burns.
