THIS IS A GREAT DAY BY DAY VIEW OF SKYNYRD'S LAST 2 YEARS. NARRATED BY ASST. TOUR MANAGER RON ECKERMAN. HE TAKES THE BLAME FOR THE CRASH, HARD TO LIVE WITH THAT. HE TELLS MANY STORIES ABOUT THE BAND. ONLY NEGATIVE IS, HE SOMETIMES TALKS ABOUT HIS PERSONAL LIFE, BUT NOT TOO MUCH. IF YOU ARE A BIG FAN LIKE ME, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. IF YOUR NOT A FAN, YOU PROBABLY WON'T CARE ABOUT THE STORIES, BUT I DO!!
