As Lynyrd Skynyrd call time on its touring career, fans of the band will still be able to get their fix due to a new documentary called If I Leave Here Tomorrow. The documentary premiered in March at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, and is due to make its debut on our screens in August on the Showtime network.
Longtime guitarist and founding member Gary Rossington will narrate the film that documents the Southern rock bands rise to stardom, of course it will delve into the tragic 1977 plane crash that claimed the life of singer Ronnie Van Zant and other members of the group, and it talks in depth about the crashes aftermath.
The film has a ton of rare footage plus interviews throughout including: former Skynyrd drummer Artimus Pyle and guitarist Ed King,late drummer Bob Burns, late backing vocalist JoJo Billingsley,producer Al Kooper and others.
If you can’t wait till August to see the film we’ve got the official Showtime trailer bellow featuring footage of Lynyrd Skynyrd performing “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Freebird.” If the trailer is anything to go by, this is a film not to be missed.
