Music for Monday: Lynyrd Skynyrd, ‘Gimme Three Steps’

Skynyrd Ronnie rocks Knebworth – August 21, 1976

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Gimme Three Steps” first saw release on the band’s 1973 debut L.P., (Pronounced ‘lĕh-‘nérd ‘skin-‘nérd).

A single of “Gimme Three Steps” was released but never charted. The tune was greatly overshadowed by the L.P.’s breakout hit, “Free Bird.” These days, “Steps” maintains its rightful status as a classic rock radio staple.

Here’s the band performing live at the Knebworth festival in England in August of 1976. Just 14 months later, band members Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines would die in that damned plane crash of October, 1977.
