â€œWe had a blast doing Speakeasy,â€ shares Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist andÂ original member Gary Rossington. â€œWeâ€™ve been reminiscing a lot on our farewell tour this year and it was so cool to sit down with fans in such a small theater and share some of those memories with them. And Rob Tannenbaum did a great job with the interview; we could have talked all afternoon! Look forward to everyone seeing the episode.â€
