Lost Lynyrd Skynyrd Track Set To Appear On New Album

LYNYRD SKYNYRD's late rockers are set to be brought back from the dead on the group's new album after guitarist GARY ROSSINGTON discovered a lost track in his archives. Rossington unearthed an old track recorded by the original members of the Southern rock act in the 1970s. He says, "Going back in the archives, actually, I found this old song that we did with the original band, with Ronnie Van Zant singing, Leon (Wilkeson) on bass, and Bob Burns is on drums. "It's a cool track, it's called Cottonmouth Country. We never put it out... We just kind of let it sit there, and never finished it. "It's pretty well done, but the recording isn't as good as it should be, but we might put it out as a bonus track on the new album. "It's a whole new Skynyrd song nobody's heard. It's pretty wild, pretty cool lyrics. It's about the swamps." Original members Van Zant and Steve and Cassie Gaines died in a plane crash in 1977, which left bandmate Allen Collins paralysed. Wilkerson died in 2001.

Correction:Allen Collins was not paralyzed in the plane crash. While he was injured along with his band mates Gary Rossington, Artemus Pyle, Leon Wilkeson and Leslie Hawkins and several crew members he went on to form the band Rossington/Collins in the early 80's. He was paralyzed several years later in a car crash and passed away about 1986 or 1987.
