Here’s a challenge: try to think of a band who’ve endured more adversity and strife over their storied career than Florida’s Lynyrd Skynyrd. No? Didn’t think you could. They’ve weathered a devastating plane crash that robbed them of three of their number (iconic lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines and backing singer Cassie Gaines) and severely injured the rest, they’ve overcome heart attacks, car accidents, and endured the deaths of so many of those who have passed through their line-up, and yet still they go on to fight another day. Street survivors indeed. But alas even the best things must come to an end eventually. And as is befitting a band with their legacy, they’re quitting the road on their own terms with one final hurrah round the globe…

this month’s contributors

HENRY YATES Henry has written for the Guardian, NME, Total Guitar, the Telegraph and more, and co-authored Walter Trout’s official biography, Rescued From Reality. On p66 he speaks to Peter Frampton about his careerthreatening illness. “I was struck by his bravery and good humour,” says Henry, “and I know this won’t be the last we hear from him.” DOLTYN SNEDDEN At just 24 years old, music photographer Doltyn had to really earn his spot in Lynyrd Skynyrd’s camp as the band’s official photographer. “They never had a photographer on the road with them before,” he explains, “so trusting someone so young with capturing the band’s current emotion and environment was a risk.” See the fruits of Doltyn’s labours from p28. STEVE WOOD When he’s not beautifying images across the worlds of music, fashion, sport and…

scott walker

ACKNOWLEDGED AS an influence on artists as diverse as David Bowie, Bryan Ferry, Steven Wilson, Marc Almond and Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt, Scott Walker has died at the age of 76. At the time of going to press the cause of death had yet to be revealed. Born Noel Scott Engel in Ohio, the enigmatic singer/songwriter began his career in London as a teen idol in the Walker Brothers during the mid-1960s, enjoying a run of hits that included the UK chart-toppers The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore and Make It Easy On Yourself. He went on to record the solo albums Scott, Scott 2, Scott 3 and Scott 4 between 1967 and 1969. His output became increasingly experimental in the following years with albums including Tilt and Bish Bosch pushing him…

THE MUCH-LOVED singer with Satchel, Brad, Pigeonhed and The Twilight Singers has died at the age of 53 at his home in Seattle following a torn aorta and high blood pressure. Born in Spokane, Washington, Smith fell into the role of lead vocalist, having begun as a drummer and guitarist, before songwriting became his passion. “Prince was kind of my biggest inspiration,” he once told Classic Rock. Smith moved to Seattle in 1987 and by 1992 had teamed up with producer/musician Steve Fisk to found Pigeonhed, whose self-titled debut album featured Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil. That same year Smith formed Brad with Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam, bassist Jeremy Toback and drummer Regan Hagar. Their first album Shame was released in 1993, and Brad would go on to release five records, the…
