Searched around and I couldn't believe no one posted this yet...

The Florida teacher who inspired rockers LYNYRD SKYNYRD's misspelled name has died.

Leonard Skinner died on Monday (20Sep10) at a nursing home in Riverside, Florida. He was 77.

The Freebird rockers paid a sarcastic tribute to their former gym teacher, who lived in infamy during band founders Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington's school days, because he had a habit of sending boys to the principal for growing their hair too long.

Ironically, many of the bandmates later became friends with Skinner.

Now both of them are dead.

Which I say as a big fan of pre-plane crash Skynyrd.

I herd about that on the local news. Riverside is only a few minutes from where I live.

Ed King begs to differ. He left before drinking the potion of death too long. Had a brush with heart failure, but he's alright. Still two though.

I meant one person still in it, although Ricky used to be the drummer but i don't think he was there right when they began out of high school
