Gary Rossington dreamed of eventually playing for the New York Yankees.
His mother, Berniece Rossington, remembered, "He wanted to be a Yankee". He was a Yankee fan and he was going to play on the Yankee team when he grew up.
He would be a baseball player. I was a real good ball player He recalled in"I went as far as playing American Legion ball. The next stop would have been AA minor league baseball.
I had the highest batting average in the league one year and a good arm - you've got to have a good arm to play outfield. Gary was good too, but he gave it all up when he got to like the Rolling Stones.
Allen Collins, however, had no illusions of a sports career. He wanted to be a rock star, but didn't know if he wanted to be a star with Ronnie and Gary.
Allen got his musical start playing the guitar when he was twelve years old. His step-mother, Leila Collins, played country and western guitar.
Allen's father, Larkin collins, remebered Allen's first experience with the guitar. He picked it up from there and, well, she taught him some more, but he never had a lesson in his life. She sort of, you might say, was his only lesson. No doubt about it at all.
His father then bought him his first guitar and amplifier and only a few weeks later Ronnie, Bob, and Gary waylayed Allen into playing music with them.
Ronnie VanZant began his musical career in a common venue - singing in the bathtub. Ronnie's mother, Marion VanZant, recalled her son's early singing, "They'd play on the piano and guitar, but singing in the bathtub, that was their real thing.

We were trying to learn from people, no lessons or anything, just watching. Early influences ranged from the Southern blues common in north Florida to the country standards Ronnie heard on runs up the Atlantic seaboard in his father's eighteen-wheeler.
Ronnie always claimed though, that the band really modeled themselves after the first waves of the British rock invasion, "If you ask me, we're closer to the classic British rock groups like Free than anything else.
They were our idols and gods at the time. As a matter of fact, that's when I really did think the Beatles were like gods. I had this thing when Iwas going to school.SKYNYRD HISTORY LESSONS Name Changes and Ten Dollar Gigs.
