The famous Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd will continue to display the Confederate flag onstage at their concerts, says guitarist Gary Rossington, despite rumours to the contrary which have been flying around the Internet. Greg Richter reports for AL.com:
Gary Rossington, the only original member still in the band, now says on the band’s website that the rebel flag will still be used in concerts.
“Myself, the past members and the present members (that are from the South), are all extremely proud of our heritage and being from the South. We know what the Dixie flag represents and its heritage; the Civil War [sic] was fought over States rights,” Rossington wrote.
