The Dude on the Right
A Concert Review
From Ted Nugent to Lynyrd Skynyrd - sounds pretty cool don't it.
Well...... I wish I could say the same. The Skynyrd band '94 wasn't
bad, and they played the hits, but it's time to push that new
material than keep relying on the old sometimes. I remember when
they came through for the reunion tour many years ago, and that was
cool. But nothings really seemed to changed. They kept touting their
new album coming out, but didn't play much from it which may have
been a shame because the couple of songs they did play sounded
fresh, like there was still life in the old band. But the night was
a greatest hits night, even with the closing of "Freebird"
with the big giant disco ball. Oh well.
Like I said, they weren't bad, just not that good, and not really
knowing which way to go with this one, I'm going to give Lynyrd
Skynyrd a SHRUG. Let's get the new stuff out if it's on it's way.

they moved in a filled the seats nicely. So, I knew something was up
with this show. And from the opening acoustic session to the final
closing of Freebird, there was a lack of intensity coming from the
crowd. I think that the band tried hard to bring it up but it just
was not meant to be. I thought that the lack of enthusiasm was
almost as blatant as the not so lack of wacky tobacky. I must say
that I was more than a little disappointed in seeing Skynyrd. And I
had expected a little more from these guys and did not get it. I can
only hope that The Rolling Stones don't disappoint me like Skynyrd
did. So they get TWO THUMBS DOWN! I hate to do it but I am a
reviewer and that's why they pay me the big bucks, yeah right!
By the time the sets had changed between Nugent and Skynyrd I would
guess that most
