March 17, 1980 - Rossington Collins Band

March 17 - St. Paddy's Day - wear green or risk getting pinched - 4 leaf clover - prodigious amounts of beer - The Blarney Stone - Rossington-Collins Band.

Wait. What?

Yes. March 17, 1980, the Rossington-Collins Band played the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville. For those who didn't know or may have forgotten, RCB was fronted by Gary Rossington and Allen Collins following the plane crash that took the lives of 3 members of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Rossington and Collins were joined by two other surviving members of Skynyrd, bassist Leon Wilkeson and keyboardist Billy Powell (who passed away earlier this year).

RCB toured in support of its first release, Anytime, Anywhere, Anywhere, including this show in Nashville on St. Patrick's Day 1980.

[Click here] to download a soundboard recording version of the show from MegaUpload in MP3 format. The MP3 tracks are archived in an RAR file. You may need a free tool such as 7-Zip to extract them. (WinZip won't extract RAR files.)

And to either refresh your memory or intro you to RCB, here's a rare video clip of one of their signature songs Don't Misunderstand Me.

So kick your southern rock jams on the day of Irish celebration.
