"Whiskey bottles and brand new cars, oak tree you're in my way"
On Sept. 5, 1976, Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington crashed his new Ford Torino into a tree. His injuries forced the band to cancel an upcoming tour. The band even fined Gary $5000.00 because of it.
While Gary was recovering, the band wrote a song about it.
42 years ago today. "….can't ya smell that smell……"
