The Fender Stratocaster and Lynyrd Skynyrd
A point that Tom makes that may be often overlooked in Skynyrd is that the Stratocaster was a key element to the band, being Ed King or Steve Gaines. Their most popular albums are with a Stratocaster. Gary and Allen gave the band the guitar turbo engine, Ed and Steve primed it up with high-test gas and oil.
