Q - Did you every play bass live with LS before LW came back?? If so, with what equipment?
I did quite a few club dates and some shows with Skynyrd as a bass player. Funny that NO PHOTOS exist that can prove this*. I joined the band 11/72 and Leon didn't return until at least May '73. At first I used a Rickenbacker bass that I soon traded straight-up for a '65 Jazz Bass. Played thru an Ampeg SVT Eight ten-inch speakers.
* Actually, there is ONE, but you can hardly see him
Yup...that;s the ONLY photo of me playing bass w/ the band. The Cellar Door in Charlotte, NC...where we used to throw ciggy butts at the dancers on the floor right in front of the stage.[/b][/size]
In the 70s, if we had a problem on the road we'd just have to live with it until we got to Atlanta or Jax. I remember one time taking my guitar to a shop in Denver because of some severe fret buzz. Sometimes at a gig, a road crew member from another band might be able to help. On the road, you just lived day-to-day. Allen & Gary swore by their favorite guy, Jay Rhine, in Atlanta. He was REAL GOOD and ALWAYS ridiculously busy. He took care of most of our repairs. [/b][/size]
relic: Quirkiness - a fine word. Efficient and precise in a somewhat obscure way.

shaw: I wonder if Zap is around.I found a guitar someone was throwing out and it has Zapp on the headstock. Turns out its one of those Law Suit era Les Pauls. I'm putting it back together it was only the body & neck, with no hardware but I got all the parts now.
