Rossington Collins Band is a lil treasure that not a lot of people are familiar with. I first heard this band waaay back when.... I was about 15 years old.... it was my first concert and one of the best I've ever attended.
If you are not familiar with their story.... Rossington Collins was formed in 1979 by Gary Rossington and Allen Collins after a plane crash killed the lead singer of their band Lynyrd Skynyrd.... sound more familiar now??? They added Gary's wife Dale Krantz to become their lead singer and let me tell you this lady can belt out a song! This whole album is just awesome... one of my all time favorites!
They didn't last for very long as a group because Lynyrd Skynyrd was eventually revived with Ronnie Van Zant's younger brother taking over as their lead singer... but Dale Krantz stayed on the road even then as their background vocalist.
This is a more recent performance from her... but I'm not sure of the date or even the place... just wanted to share an old favorite. Here is Don't Misunderstand Me by Dale Krantz.... you can find it on the Rossington Collins CD Anytime, Any Place, Any Where

I wish I could find a live performance of my favorite Rossington Collins song... but this is all I could find of it... I couldn't even get the video to embed.... so just click the link and ignore the spinning vinyl... and listen to this awesome song.... I did find the lyrics.... so I've included them.....
One Good Man...
I hope you enjoyed this Music Monday! For a lil more info on the band you can visit this web site... it's not official... but I couldn't find an official band site.... Rossington Band
