Lynyrd Skynyrd/Shooter Jennings

Tuesday, June 27. UMB Bank Pavilion (14141 Riverport Drive, Maryland Heights)

Though founding vocalist and primary songwriter Ronnie Van Zant long ago went to that "Sweet Home Alabama" in the sky — he perished in the infamous 1977 Mississippi plane crash that killed five other people — Jacksonville, Florida's Lynyrd Skynyrd remain the undisputed kings of classic-rock radio. In fact, Ronnie's brother Johnny has been at the helm since 1987, ensuring that the 2006 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees still maintain their Southern-fried, blues-infused swagger in both sound and attitude. Just look at their ever-growing legacy, which currently influences Drive-By Truckers, Kings of Leon and opening act Shooter Jennings. Whoo, "Free Bird!"
