Being a fan of certain kinds of music has a way of infiltrating a person’s entire being, which can undoubtedly have an influence on their lifestyle, fashion and overall personal taste. This theory goes double in regards to a legendary southern rock band like Lynyrd Skynyrd.

That’s because not only does this band’s music have such longevity that it is nearly impossible to imagine the world without songs like “Tuesday’s Gone,” “Simple Man” and “Freebird,” but they have somehow managed to keep the Lynyrd Skynyrd brand alive in the face of devastating adversity.
