We are running this show in honor of Coach Skinner tonight , who passed away last week.
"That old high-school coach died Monday in a nursing home in Jacksonville, Fla., at 77, but his rules and his name will live forever in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Leonard Skinner was the former basketball coach, assistant football coach and gym teacher at Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville. When he was coaching and teaching in the late 1960s, the school's dress code didn't permit boys to wear long hair.
"My father was a very strict disciplinarian," said Skinner's daughter Susie Moore. "Rules were black and white. There was no gray area. He did things by the book. That's what he stood for."
One day in his gym class, Skinner noticed that Gary Rossington, a guitarist in a rock 'n' roll band, had hair that flowed well below his collar. Skinner sent Rossington to the principal's office, and he was suspended from school. Rossington, lead singer Ronnie Van Zant and the rest of the band members changed their name to "Lynyrd Skynyrd" as a mocking tribute to the stern gym teacher.
Skynyrd's guitar army would go on to international success, cranking out such anthems as "Freebird" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The old coach eventually embraced the fame that came with the rock 'n' roll version of his name, but never quite understood why he was being ridiculed for doing his job and trying to make rebellious kids respect the rules"

The organization toured with the top bands of the era: Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton, Willie Nelson, WAR, Humble Pie, Foghat, Alvin Lee, Waylon Jennings, Trapeze, Montrose, Gary Wright, and many others.
In 1976, he took on the challenge of managing Lynyrd Skynyrd tours, and witnessed and participated in their meteoric rise to fame and worldwide acclaim. After recovering from the tragic plane crash that put an end to the original Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eckerman went on to produce in television, film, and stage, and taught theater and artist management at Santa Monica College.

The death of former Lynyrd Skynyrd keyboard player Billy Powell on January 28, 2009, reminded me of an interview I did with him on May 5, 1983. Long before Lynyrd Skynyrd reformed around Johnny Van Zant, Powell was recording and touring with the Allen Collins Band (after the Rossington-Collins Band, of which he also was a member broke up).
In this interview, I was actually scheduled to speak with Allen Collins, but he never made it.Instead, the band's manager kept handing the phone to everyone else in the band. I was utterly unprepared for them, but it was actually one of the most enjoyable phone interviews I ever did.
I hope you'll enjoy this, the first time this crazy interview has ever been heard outside of my office.
