September 13, 1976 ~ Lynyrd Skynyrd release the live album.
Skynyrd had been a big supporter of rock promoter Alex Cooley and when he went on a drive to save the legendary Fox Theatre in Atlanta from demolition, they were the first to ask how they could “put some grease in the frying pan.” The result was one of the greatest live concert albums in rock.
September 5, 1976 ~ Skynyrd’s Garry Rossington falls asleep at the wheel of his new Ford Torino and hits a tree and a house. The incident inspires Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant to write “That Smell.”
Brothers and Sisters, the fourth studio album by Allman Brothers Band, is released.
The front album cover features a photograph of Vaylor Trucks, the son of drummer Butch Trucks and his wife Linda. The back cover features a photograph of Brittany Oakley, the daughter of Berry Oakley and his wife, Linda.
