Billy Powell R.I.P.

People complain about hearing "Layla" on Classic Rock radio all the time. But I never get sick of Duane Allman's slide guitar. Screw 'em, and the ones who whine about "Free Bird". Possibly Billy Powell's most famous take of it is from One More From The Road. Powell died today at age 56, but his keyboards played a big part in Skynyrd's sound.
