A Simple Kind Of Man.....

Leonard Skinner, the man who provided the name for rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd died yesterday.  As any rock'n'roll kid from the '70 knows, Skinner was the gym teacher who got the core members of Skynyrd suspended from school due to their long hair.  In a fit of something, the boys decided to name the band after him.  The rest is history.

Of course, Skinner had the last laugh, I suppose, as he outlived most of the band.
