Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Last of a Dyin’ Breed” Performance set to re-air December 27 on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

By on December 21, 2012

Some things are so good they need to be aired twice.  That’s exactly what producers of the The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson thought when they choose to re-air Lynyrd Skynyrd’s performance of “Last of a Dyin’ Breed.”  Fans can tune into CBS on December 27 at 12:35am/11:35pm CT to catch a performance so rockin’ it had to air twice.
 
The original performance aired on October 1 while the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers were touring in Los Angeles in support of their latest album, Last Of A Dyin’ Breed.  The album release was their highest charting album since 1977, debuting at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.  With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having over two million downloaded ringtones, Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.  Most recently, they took the stage at the 2012 American Country Music Awards with co-host Trace Adkins to perform “What’s Your Name,” bringing an audience full of country stars to their feet. The legendary rockers also performed for the Discovery Channel’s “Chopper Live: The Revenge.”
 
Led by core members Gary Rossington (guitar), Johnny Van Zant (vocals) and Rickey Medlock (guitar), Lynyrd Skynyrd continues the tremendous legacy that began over 35 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida with their August 21, 2012 release, Last Of A Dyin’ Breed, a legacy that was halted for a decade after the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band tragically lost Billy Powell, Ean Evans, Allen Collins, Leon Wilkeson and Huey Thomasson, yet they continue to forge ahead. Rounding out the line-up is bass player Johnny Colt, an original member of the Black Crowes who recently joined the band, Mark “Sparky” Matejka on guitar, Peter Keys on keyboards, and Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase as the Honkettes backing vocalists.
