Skynyrd is always alot of fun. I wonder if there is as much white trash people that see them over Europe as there is here in the states. It's absolutely embarassing making them open up for Kid Rock. There won't be a case of Natural Light in the state of Kansas by the time they play together in KC. On the 4th of July of all dates. Seen them 3 times already and always a blast.

Looks like they even changed up their setlist since the last time I saw them a few years ago.

Blasphemy!

I love Skynyrd, and have seen them a few times, but this brings up one of my "pet peeves". How many "original" members should be in a band in order to still be considered to be the same band. Let's face it, Skynyrd is down to 1 original (Rossington), so at what point are they a glorified tribute band?

I understand what you're saying about them being a tribute band but unlike a lot of bands it's not there fault that all the original members aren't around anymore. Plus there's younger people like myself who've grown up with this version of Skynyrd and have no idea who's who in the band

I've always wondered where the line was drawn at as well. Like seeing Prong a few years ago. Its not like I was really that bothered that it was just Tommy Victor. Or seeing Helmet & Page is the only guy from the original days. Not trying to be a dick about it or anything but really how many bands could you say that about. I think its one of those deals that the band is bigger than it's members. Atleast for the Van Zants it was just the brother taking over instead of hiring some surfer blonde guy from California and saying "hey this is the new Skynyrd". Definitley a funny thought.

I think it all has to do with how things transpired throughout a band's career to get to the point of having one, or even no (which has happened) original members. I think if a band had gone through a shitload of changes before releasing it's "essential" material, no one really cares about the lineup changes before that, just what happens after. Take a band like Maiden, who went through countless changes through their pre-debut years and even the first 3 albums. But Maiden released it's "essential" material with a stable and consistent line up. To most people, that's Maiden.
If a band has been around 20+ years, it's common that they can wind up with just one original member without it being weird at all. If people just come and go casually every now and then, it just seems normal as it happens through the years.
Also, for a lot of people, as long as a band retains it's most popular singer, or if there is a primary writer, that's what defines the band for fans, and as long as the stay, people don't get that upset with the changes. For example, Iced Earth. It's been Schaffer's show from Day 1, and people know that. People are biased towards singers (usually Barlow vs. Ripper), but there isn't anyone out there who think the current lineup is blasphemous because of the other new faces.
