It’s Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Yearbook Photos!
Did you figure it out? That's right, these photos feature three members of Lynyrd Skynyrd. The top photo is of founding guitarist Allen Collins, who encountered more than his share of tragedy. After incurring serious injuries during the band's 1977 plane crash, he was in a car accident in 1986 that left him paralyzed from the waist down and with only limited use of his hands and arms. He passed away in 1990.
At bottom left is drummer Bob Burns, a founding member who left the band in 1974, three years before the crash that claimed the life of frontman Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Steve Gaines. Burns, 61, is alive and well.
Guitarist Gary Rossington, 60 years old and the only original member still performing in the band today, is pictured at bottom right. You can hear him on the Lynyrd Skynyrd's current album, 'Last of a Dyin' Breed.'
