Skynyrd Brings “Sweet Home Alabama” To Late Night TV, Dishin’ Out A Serious Dose Of Southern Comfort | Society Of Rock Videos

After Dark, 1974

Wow, talk about a blast from the past! This rare footage is from Lynyrd Skynyrd’s 1974 appearance on After Dark, shortly after the release of their critically acclaimed album Second Helping. While the performance included a rowdy performance of ‘Don’t Ask Me No Questions’, the real gem of the performance was the American classic, ‘Sweet Home Alabama’. In the spirit of all things Southern rock, Ronnie Van Zant took the stage barefoot as he always did, and gave the crowd at After Dark a show they’d never forget.

Lynyrd Skynyrd vs. Neil Young, and Water Under the Bridge

Despite rumors of a mile-wide rift between Neil Young and Lynyrd Skynyrd, the two actually enjoyed a healthy respect for each other’s work and talent.

What makes this footage even more amazing is the fact that it’s in color – not much color footage of Lynyrd Skynyrd exists, so it’s always an extra treat when we get to see our boys live and in color!

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd & Second Helping Live’ is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats – it’s the perfect gift for the Lynyrd Skynyrd fan in your life. Buy it here on Amazon!
