Storyline

This authorized documentary will explore the music and backstory of the legendary American band. With the songs from the first six Skynyrd albums driving the narration, the film focuses on the story of frontman Ronnie Van Zant - his upbringing, his roots, his work ethic and his contradictory persona as both as a mythic Southern rock poet and notorious boozed-up brawler, as well as the relationships between his friends and fellow founding members Gary Rossington and Allen Collins, along with later bandmates Ed King and Artimus Pyle.

Will You Still Remember Me?.....
25 August 2018 | by deltablues-06321See all my reviews

Stephen Kijak did a very nice job putting this documentary together. It's done so very respectfully and pays the proper homage this great band deserves from original members to current members. Lynyrd Skynyrd was a rock solid steady part of the soundtrack of lives for anyone growing up in the '70's. And their legend and music still reverberates with strength and relevance as it did back then. This documentary will shed light on the band's roots, it's rise to icon status, the highs & the lows. in great clarity. There is something to be learned in this gem by even the most devoted fan. Much Respect!
