Six years after reuniting, Lynyrd Skynyrd further established their place in music history with the release of their seventh studio album, The Last Rebel. Filled full of brand new music, Skynyrd hoped to satisfy their fans, and they did exactly that. The Last Rebel found its place in the 64th spot on the Billboard charts, due in no small part to its impressive tracklist.
The Last Rebel‘s first track, “Good Lovin’s Hard to Find,” opens the album with the hardcore Southern sound Skynyrd has become known for. Written by Ed King, Gary Rossington, Johnny Van Zant, and Robert White Johnson, the song is all about the quest for love.
The song’s narrator speaks to a woman throughout the song, trying to convince her that she’s never going to find the perfect man of her dreams. Telling her that “good lovin’s hard to find,” he says that she’ll be “better off just takin’ what [she] can.”
In 1993, Skynyrd stormed the famous Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia and filled it to the top with their soulful Southern sound on “Good Lovin’s Hard to Find.”
Before they started playing, Johnny asked the crowd if they were ready to “boogie,” and according to their enthusiastic response, they were more than ready. Once you start watching this performance, you’ll soon find yourself jiving along to the music as well.
As you watch and dance along, make sure to keep your eyes on keyboardist Billy Powell, because his fingers soared over those keys like lightning! Overall, this is a fun-filled performance that perfectly showcases the high caliber of Skynyrd’s talent. Check it out below!
