Lynyrd Skynyrd Inducted in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
March 15, 2006
It took seven nominations, but street-survivin' Lynyrd Skynyrd made it to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2006. Peavey congratulates the extended Lynyrd Skynyrd family on their achievements. Lynyrd Skynyrd has used Peavey amplifiers since the 1970s—in fact, guitarist Gary Rossington still uses his treasured Mace* amps on the road today.
To celebrate, the band performed "Sweet Home Alabama" with former members Bob Burns on drums, Artimus Pyle on percussion and Ed King on guitar, and a line of new Peavey Penta* amps out front and cranked. Original backup singers JoJo and Leslie were there, too, along with Kid Rock!
