ALBUM RELEASED ON THIS DAY IN 1977

 

"Street Survivors" was the fifth studio album released by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Three
days later vocalist Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines
(Steve’s sister) and road manager Dean Kilpatrick were killed when their plane
crashed in Gillsburg, MS. The other four members of the band were seriously
injured in the crash, but survived. The album was an instant success, achieving
gold certification just ten days after its release. It would later go double platinum.
