“Tuesday’s Gone” is the second track on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s first album, “(pronounced ‘lĕh-‘nérd ‘skin-‘nérd)”. One of the band’s most popular songs, its relaxing pace and serenading guitars have made it a fan staple. The lyrics are band frontman Ronnie Van Zant’s realization that his normal life is finished forever with the band’s new MCA/Sounds of the South record deal. “Tuesday,” representing life as it was, is gone with the wind. The song is similar in mood to the band’s signature tune “Free Bird”. Once in an 1975 radio interview a caller asked Allen Collins, the song’s co writer what his favorite Lynyrd Skynyrd song was and Allen answered “Tuesday’s Gone”. Al Kooper adds upfront Mellotron string sounds to the chorus of the song. It is one of a few Lynyrd Skynyrd songs that Bob Burns the original founding member and drummer did not play on. Atlanta Rhythm Section’s drummer Robert Nix played on the studio version. Bob Burns however can be heard playing on the demo version from the same session.
Lynyrd Skynyrd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the southern hard-rock genre during the 1970s. Originally formed in 1964 as My Backyard in Jacksonville, Florida, the band used various names such as The Noble Five and One Percent, before coming up with Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1969. The band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its live performances and signature tunes “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird”. At the peak of their success, three members died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band’s most popular incarnation.
The surviving band members re-formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with lead vocalist Johnny Van Zant, the younger brother of lead singer and founder Ronnie Van Zant. The re-formed band continues to tour and record with co-founding member Gary Rossington and core members Johnny Van Zant, along with guitarist Rickey Medlocke, who recorded with the band for a short time in the early 1970s. Drummer Michael Cartellone has recorded and toured with the band since 1999. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006.
