GoFundMe for Lynyrd Skynyrd Band Blues Markers

MCCOMB, MS (Ben Caxton) — Money is being raised for two Mississippi Blues Trail markers to commemorate the 1977 plane crash that killed three members of the band Lynyrd Skynyrd, their road manager, and two pilots. The markers will be unveiled in October – one near the crash site in Gillsburg and the other at Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in McComb where survivors were treated. Mike Rounsaville is a Skynyrd fan; his GoFundMe page has raised nearly $10,000 and the Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center Foundation is also collecting donations. Lynyrd Skynyrd was founded in Florida and is known for hits including “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird.”

  1. I’m supposed to chip in for a marker that a group full of millionaires could write a check for? No thanks!

  2. I’ll bet ya money, the survivors know nothing about this. At least one of the survivors was treated by my orthopedic surgeon at UMC.
