In 1991, Lynyrd Skynyrd released their first studio album since the plane crash of 1977. Appropriately titled, Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991, the album featured all-new material from the group.
One of the tracks on the album is called "Keeping the Faith." Written by Ed King, Gary Rossington, D. Tate, and Johnny Van Zant, the song portrays the feelings of a man who's been unlucky in love. Despite all the times he's been rejected, the narrator is willing to open up to the special lady he describes in the song, singing, "I'm keepin' my faith I'm trustin' in you/So don't treat me like those other ones do."
In 1993, Skynyrd took the song to the iconic Fox Theatre, a venue that has become synonymous with Skynyrd's name over the years. You can feel the energy rise from the start of the performance, as Ed and Gary begin playing a soft guitar part that gradually grows louder. The excitement builds further when drummer Artimus Pyle joins in, and eventually explodes with a loud growl from Johnny.
The performance only gets more invigorating as it continues, due in large part to Johnny's raw, but passionate vocal delivery. Harmonizing with him, the Honkettes add extra flair to make the already spectacular performance something from out of this world.
All of Skynyrd's performances are amazing, but there's something about this one that places it in a league all on its own. Check it out in the video below. You won't regret it!
