Lynyrd Skynyrd – What’s Your Name

October 24, 2009

Lynyrd Skynyrd, named after their teacher Leonard Skinner,
who wouldn’t have them having long hair.
“What’s Your Name” is written by Ronnie van Zant and Gary Rossington.
A fight over a girl in a bar,
girl comes with the group to their hotel,
where they party on.

Nine o’clock the next day and I’m ready to go.
I got six hundred miles to ride and do one more show, oh no.
Can I get you a taxi home, it sure was grand.
When I come back here next year I wanna see you again.

But there wouldn’t be a next year.
In 1977, three days after the album with “What’s Your Name” on it,
called “Street Survivors” was released, the plane that the group hired crashed.
Among the people killed were: Ronnie van Zant, Steve Gaines and
his sister Cassie Gaines (Honkettes background singer).
The sleeve of the album had to be changed
because the band was surrounded by flames.
