The Lynyrd Skynyrd rock band was formed in 1964 under the name My Backyard. They adopted the Lynyrd Skynyrd name in 1969. The original band was known for making the Southern Rock genre popular. In 1977, the band suffered a major setback when their chartered plane crashed, and several of the members were killed. They disbanded following the accident.
Ten years later, the band reformed, and is still touring in 2019.
Lynyrd Skynyrd has sold 28 million records in the United States. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006.
