    35 Years ago: J Geils Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd & Peter Frampton at JFK - 6/11/1977

    1977: 6/11/1977: Outdoor Rock Concert at JFK in Philadelphia, PA.
    Peter Frampton returned from a seven-month lay-off and played with Lynyrd Skynyrd
    and The J. Geils Band before 91,000 fans (including Baltimore Bob) on June 11, 1977.
    JFK stadium was demolished & now is the current location of the Philly Center.
    Just months later on October 20, 1977, just three days after the release of Street Survivors,
    and five shows into their most successful headlining tour to date, Lynyrd Skynyrd's
    chartered Convair CV-300 ran out of fuel near the end of their flight from Greenville,
    South Carolina, where they had just performed at the Greenville Memorial Auditorium,
    to LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Though the pilots attempted an emergency landing
    on a small airstrip, the plane crashed in a forest in Gillsburg, Mississippi.
    Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick,
    pilot Walter McCreary and co-pilot William Gray were killed on impact;
    the other band members (Collins, Rossington, Wilkeson, Powell, Pyle, and Hawkins)
    and road crew suffered serious injuries.

    I'm trying to get maybe One Million Vietnam Vets
    a check for at least $1,000,000 each.
    So this in NOT just about me.
    The Cowards Should have to Pay for the Mistakes of their forefathers.
    For allowing Vietnam to go down & sending innocent guys there.

    Reparations for Vietnam Vets
