They’re not ready to make nice.
Born and raised in North Carolina, Haynes is a former member of the Allman Brothers Band and, yes, he has some feeling about the rebel flag.
Lynyrd Skynyrd began phasing use of the Confederate flag a few years ago. Another Southern band, the Drive-By Truckers, agrees. “It’s well past time for all the Southern states to move on.”
“I’ve been a fan ever since the band began, and I have every Skynyrd album that has ever been released. If Skynyrd drops the flag, I’ll drop Skynyrd.” — A comment on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Facebook page
