The week in music history brought to you by MusicGoldmine.com.
OCT 20: Today in 1977, a plane crash would take the life of Lynyrd Skynyrd members and crew, while injuring many other passengers. Ronnie Van Zant, Stevie Gaines, Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary, and co-pilot William Gray perished in the crash. The plane had previously experienced issues and another band's - Aerosmith - crew had rejected possibly using the plane due to the plane not being up to standard. RIP😢
