Lynyrd Skynyrd Inducted Into Ultimate Classic Rock Hall Of Fame

Lynyrd Skynyrd have been inducted into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame. The fan voted honor was announced this week after the southern rock icons edged out Aerosmith with 67% of the vote.

The mag touted Skynyrd's fabled career:

"Skynyrd had . . . already established itself with a trio of early-'70s recordings that would eventually go platinum when one of rock's most stunning tragedies decimated the group."

"Having just released Street Survivors in 1977, Lynyrd Skynyrd was traveling from a show in Greenville, S.C., to another in Baton Rouge, La. when their plane reportedly ran out of fuel. As the pilots attempted to put the twin-engine Convair CV-300 craft down, it clipped the tops of a tree line in Gillsburg, Mississippi, and crashed."
