Lynyrd Skynyrd's Freebird is an epic 9 minutes and 8 seconds of pure indulgence. Its the equivalent of a double chocolate fudge cake smothered in double cream and topped with Nutella! The song first appeared on the bands debut album in 1973 and was later released as a single in November 1974 and although the track didn't break any records in the US Billboard charts it did go on to enter the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame's Top 500 Songs That Shaped Rock n Roll and in 2009 was listed as the 26th Best Hard Rock Song of All Time.
But it was on the stage that the song took on a whole life of it's own. Often becoming the final act of each performance the 5 minute guitar solo often turned into a jam session which would simply destroy the by now frenzied crowd.
It was Allen Collins that wrote the initial chords on which the song was based and legend also has it that his girlfriend Kathy asked him 'If I leave here tomorrow, will you still remember me'. Collins felt that question warranted the opening line to Freebird and suddenly the legacy was born.
Freebird is one of those songs that has gathered momentum as time passes by. It transcends generations and is enjoyed worldwide as a wonderfully written and beautifully performed piece of music that will be remembered forever.
