So fellow Hottie Bill Edwards touched on one of my best rants nobody wants to hear. which is as follows: though Skynrd has many redneck fans, they not only did anti drug songs (That smell) anti handgun songs (Saturday Night Special), but also anti violence songs. The narrator in the song "Gimme three steps", when confronted with someone who wants to fight, only asks for 3 steps to run away from the scene before violence is committed. They also have a song (Curtis Low) in which Van Zandt sings the praises of a hero and role model of his, a BLACK man named Curtis Low).
How many other bands can list such a left wing liberal stance on so many issues?
