Nearly 30 years after the release of their studio album, Nuthin' Fancy, Lynyrd Skynyrd entertained a crowd in New Hampshire with one of the album's most well-known tracks. Called "Whiskey Rock-A-Roller," the song has maintained a status as a Skynyrd fan favorite for decades. 

Written by Ed King, Billy Powell, and Ronnie Van Zant, "Whiskey Rock-A-Roller" is about a travelin' man who doesn't claim any particular place as his home. The man simply has an urge to keep moving, as he sings, "The only time I'm satisfied is when I'm on the road."

Skynyrd brought this fan favorite back to New Hampshire during a concert at the U.S. Cellular Pavilion in Gilford in 2004. Lead singer Johnny Van Zant started off by shouting "Come on!" and man, did the band deliver.

It should come as no surprise that Skynyrd's guitarists delivered invigorating performances. Rickey Medlocke was really working the stage as he played, and may have even thrown a few dances moves in there.

Besides the guitarists, drummer Michael Cartellone was tearing it up at the back of the stage. As you watch the perfomance below, you'll find your eyes drawn to him again and again. He put so much energy into his performance that it's infectious!

Combine a classic song and a talented group of musicians, and you get something extraordinary. That's what this clip of "Whiskey Rock-A-Roller" is, which is why you need to drop everything and watch it right now.

Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd & Second Helping Live' is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats - it's the perfect gift for the Lynyrd Skynyrd fan in your life. Buy it here on Amazon!
