Legendary keyboardist of this band you may have heard of called Lynyrd Skynyrd, was pronounced dead at 1:52 a.m. today. Billy had a history of heart problems and it would seem like heart complications were the cause of his death. You’d think that after surviving the band’s 1977 plane crash that killed 3 other band mates that he might just be invincible. Sadly not. Everyone get out your lighters. Let’s give Billy a proper sendoff.
Fly Free, Billy, Free as a bird.
