PARTS OF MY INTERVIEW
WITH JACQUELYN
COOPER ON THE LYNYRD
SKYNYRD PLANE CRASH

On October 20th 1977,
a twin engine plane carrying
the Rock 'N' Roll band Lynyrd
Skynyrd crashed in a remote
section of woods in near
Gillsburg, Mississippi. The plane
ran out of fuel and crashed
before 7:00pm, at the wooded
property.
Six lives were claimed in the crash
including band members,
Ronnie VanZant, Steve Gaines,
Cassie Gaines, Pilot Walter Wiley
McCreary, co-pilot William John
Gray, and Dean Kilpatrick
(the assistant road manager for
the group). Six other members
of the rock band were injured, two
hurt critically and four hospitalized
in stable condition.

We're mentioned in
a NBC News Story
October 20, 2012:
NBC News mentioned our
Tennessee Concerts
website in their news story
"Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash
was 35 years ago".
We received ten of thousands
of hits in the days afterward.
The Lynyrd Skynyrd Southern
Tribute pages were put
together by myself and
Jacquelyn Cooper.
Her grandfather owned the
property that the plane crashed
on. At my request, she went up
into the family attic and dug out
newspaper articles & actual
pictures of the crash scene.
Read my interview with her.
We published it all on my
TennesseeConcerts website
and thousands of people go
to these pages every week.
We've even heard from several
of the survivors of the crash.
Check out these pages if you
get a chance at
www.SouthernTribute.com .
Don't forget to sign the
guestbook. This is the 35th
anniversary. You can also check

2015 UPDATE
Pro musicians, garage bands,
indie artists: looking to boost your
pr image without the expense of
an agent? Are you on a tight
budget?
I've been friends with Colonel
Tamar Alexia Fleishman for
years. Professional country
musicians, rockers, agents and
venues in Nashville respect her
experience, expertise, tenacity
and skills. She's a lawyer,
journalist and an agent!
Colonel Tamar (a Kentucky
Colonel, just like Colonel Tom
Parker) can create a one-sheet
for you from scratch (even if you
don't have much in the way of a
head start). One-sheets, friends,
are a one page bio/photo
array/contact sheet. You can print
them out, mail them or give to
venue owners (hey, why not . . .
save $ on stamps!), email them.
You can edit them as time goes
on. They're yours to keep forever!
