R.I.P. Steven Earl Gaines (LYNYRD SKYNYRD): September 14th, 1949 ñ October 20th 1977

According to Wikipedia, on October 20, 1977, three days after the legendary Street Survivors album was released, a plane carrying the band between shows from Greenville, South Carolina to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, crashed outside of Gillsburg, Mississippi. The plane landed in a swampy area and crashed into trees. Gaines died from blunt-force trauma to the head; he was 28 years old and likely was killed on impact. The crash also killed Ronnie Van Zant, Steve's sister Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary, and co-pilot William Gray.
