5. Skynyrd Wanted To Learn New Songs


With an impressive collection of hit songs behind them, Skynyrd could technically get away with never releasing any new music ever again. But after all these years, they still feel the itch to come up with new material. 

In the last of the behind-the-scenes interviews about Last of a Dyin’ Breed, Gary revealed the reason why they released the album was simply because they wanted to learn new songs. He said that even though they have all of their hits from the past, it’s important to them to always keep learning new material. 

“New life goes on and new ideas go on…it’s really important to us not to just know the old songs and never try to learn any more…I guess we don’t have to do it but it sure is fun doing it,” he said.

We’re glad that Skynyrd wanted to learn some new songs, because Last of a Dyin’ Breed is one awesome album!
