Johnny, Gary, or Rickey? Whose Hair Is The Longest? Their Answer Will Have You Crackin’ Up

Conn Jackson YouTube Channel

Lynyrd Skynyrd and long hair basically go hand in hand. After all, the group got its name from a gym coach who always yelled at them for growing their hair out too long.  

While not all of Skynyrd’s members have sported long hair over the years, many of them have. The guys in Skynyrd’s current lineup are no exception.

Lead singer Johnny Van Zant and guitarists Gary Rossington and Rickey Medlocke all have pretty long hair. So when they sat down for an interview in 2012, the interviewer was curious to know exactly whose hair is the longest?

The interview was a fun, casual one, so naturally the guys decided to fire back with humor. Gary was the one who responded to the interviewer’s question, and his answer was so hilarious, he had Johnny and Rickey cracking up.

“These are all wigs man!” he said.

The guys’ down to earth nature is a huge part of their appeal to fans. When asked how they’ve been able to keep going after all of these years, Johnny explained it comes down to the fact that they’re really like everybody else:

“We relate to the fans. We go home and we take out our garbage and we cut our grass. We’re kind of like our fans. We don’t have that rock and roll mentality of somebody else doing everything for us. I think that comes out and our fans see that we’re the real deal.”

There’s no doubt at all that the guys in Skynyrd are as real as it gets. Check out their hysterical interview in the clip below. It’s sure to give you a good laugh!
