The concert was great. What a warmup act,Doobies,leading up to Skynyrd. It's a shame the fans didn't give proper respect to the Doobies. Lots of empty seats. Then Skynyrd came on and brought the (full) house down. Looking forward to the next one.

Thats because all you people are from the South. But if you took a survey across the Country......Doobie Brothers by a landslide aqlong with the Eagles.the 2 best American Bands ever. Sorry but southern rock sounds the same plus you might have 1or 2 founding band members. Not like the Eagles or Doobies.

sabertooth obviously your from the South robably young and have heard music frm the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, till prewent. As everybody knows rock in its classic sense has channeled thru the West Coast. I don't think anybody can argue that fact.more groups, festivals, larger shows, thats because everyone knew to make any money you had to get Ca behind you. So its easy too see your outnumbered by so much.its immpossible to count! Yeah there were a few decent bands from the South Allman Bros, 38 special and Lynard Skynard to be trthful man I think you don't have the numbers or diversity..your more country but Travis Tritt is cool he could have been a great Rocker if he would of moved out here 25 years ago. So sorry your wrong dude, you play for over 40 years like tthe Doobies have and still are popular throughout USA. Jeff from Ca.

I like the Eagles and the Doobies, but neither can hold a candle to Skynyrd. Especially the original band. If you'll notice, Skynyrd is still very popular. The Eagles and Doobies have never suffered the kind of tragedy and heartbreak that Skynyrd has, but still Skynyrd carries on the great music. They have always managed to do very well for themselves, whether CA was "behind" them or not. And no, I'm not a kid, and I wasn't a kid when the original band was touring and releasing albums either. They were awesome then, and they're pretty awesome now too.

When was the last time Lynard Sknard cut a new album? Huh, plus how many original members do they have? C'mon man give facts not your bias opinion, plus it seems funny but how come they never come out west and play , the Doobies play all over the country year in and out! Because in there heyday nobody could get a crowd rockin till they would preform. I've seen it for myself out here in Ca where all the great bands love to preform.....sorry man it stinks back there in the South ....what is tat smell as yo cross Texas and thru La and all those lil states..lol..you crack me up, oh I'm not old enough, well for your lil knowledge I was a Combat Medic in Nam in 67-68, so boy t don't mean nothin to me! As the BeachBoys said long ago...I wish they could all be Ca girls..

Hey Sabertooth I'm 64 so no man I wasn't any gleam in anybodys eye. Thought you were a Vietnam Vet, obviously that was a b.s. statement? As far as listening to music, I've been listening since the 50's also? Big deal you wanna drop names, dude I've met just as many, probably better bands here in Ca. Who really cares about who you know?As e used to say in Vietnam in 68 in the Infantry: It don't mean shit man! get your stories straight Southern Boy, hey I saw 38 Special and too me there as good as your 2nd Sknard Band. That's right isn't Sabertooth your a B.S.er I caught you in 4 lil white cracker lies. Hey don't screw with Vietnam Vets......where were you....Canada? lol your funny dude.....jeff b. p.s. southern guys were always envious of Ca. people! that ain't no secret to anyone!
