New Album, Tour & Bass Player For Skynyrd

Southern Rock institution Lynyrd Skynyrd will release a new studio album titled Last Of A Dying Breed on August 21.  The new album arrives as the band hits the road for dates in the US and Europe and announces the addition of founding Black Crowes bass player Johnny Colt
Gary Rossington says the new album is the first effort in some time that the group took a real live approach to as opposed to having members lay down separate tracks during different studio sessions. Going old school resulted in the process being '...a lot of fun and the music really flowed for us', according to Rossington, who adds, 'We can't wait to let the fans hear these songs and play 'em live.'
Colt is charged up about the opportunity to join the legendary outfit.  He says that when the band's Rickey Medlocke phoned him to see if he was interested, his only question was 'when and where!'
