Lynyrd Skynyrd: The 100 Proof Blues

Jim Esposito, Creem, October 1975

2009 note: In the Summer of '75 The Editors of Creem decided to do a Special Report on Rock 'n Roll and booze. They called their Writers, asked as we were out covering concerts, interviewing groups, to ask what their favorite drinks were. I was going to Atlanta over the Fourth of July to write a story on Hydra, a Southern Rock Fusion Band who were opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd at the Omni.
