Thoughts and prayers for the family of Skynyrd keyboardist Billy Powell. He passed away last night. A cool guy and a good rocker.

What a terrible loss. Maybe now is the time to put Skynyrd to rest out of respect for all those members that have sadly been taken from us over the years.

Just was over on the LS fan club site, and they mentioned Billy's passing. No information about what happen. Very sad and stunned to hear of this. RIP Billy, always enjoyed your keyboard work with the band.

That's just terrible news. I am a big fan of the original Skynyrd lineup. Billy Powell has always been one of my favorites on keys. This is a sad day indeed.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family of this great man. He will be sorely missed.

Wow, that really sucks. I hate to read that.

I agree, out of respect it's time to close the book in the Lynyrd Skynrd name...actually it's long past due.

Hope no one takes this in the wrong way, but I think it's a bit disrespectful for members of the ABB community to discussing what LS should do in the wake of Billy Powell's passing. That's something for LS and their fans to decide, other than that this communtiy should offer them our support and prayers, as no doubt this is a hard moment for all of them.

Quoted for truth.

I ran into the dude once at the grocery store, of all places. I'm one of those born-too-late guys that got into his music 15 years after its heyday. I threw out a "play it pretty for Atlanta!" and he couldn't have been cooler about it.

Oh man, what a pisser. Of all the surviving LS members, I thought he was the coolest. What a great keyboardist. What was the cause of his passing, anyone know?

I know he had a health issue a year or so back that caused him to miss some dates.

All I heard was that he had a hip replaced last year, and now this news... no cause has been given as far as I know.

I don't see it as disrespectful to share an opinion.

Condolences to family, friends and fans. I always thought Billy to be the most talented musician in the band.

How many original LS members are left?
