During a time when toughskin blue jeans, button-down shirts, and flat-top haircuts were all the rage, Gene Odom and Ronnie Van Zant became best friends. Growing up on the same block, Ronnie and Gene fished, played football, and dreamed together. Years later, one of the boys would become famous-and the other would stand by his side through thick and thin. This is the story of two young men from the same neighborhood, school, and world who together, discovered the meaning of true friendship.

As Ronnie's dreams of becoming a professional musician finally became a reality, Lynyrd Skynyrd began selling out arenas and became famous for not only their music, but also their substance abuse. After Ronnie offered Gene a job as a security officer for the band, he embarked on an unforgettable journey into a world like no other. But everything would change in October 1977 when the plane carrying the band plummeted from the sky.

Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ronnie Van Zant, and Me ... Gene Odom provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse of what it was like to be friends with one of the biggest rock stars of the 1970s and how a friendship between two childhood buddies stood the test of time.

Disjointed and superficial are the two best words to describe this book. Filled in a haphazard way with a few Skynyrd stories told like he had heard them third hand from someone who knew someone who had once met Ronnie Van Zant. If you have read any of the other books out about Van Zant and the band you will know what is the full story behind the references but if this is the only book that you ever read you would never get a sense of who the people actually are. Sorry to say but a waste of money.

Very interesting read. I have always been a big fan of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd band and the people associated with the group

this book was 90% about Gene -which is fine but I thought I was buying a book about his time with Ronnie and the band

This book is ok for something like 5 Bucks. Its a rip off for 10. I thought it was the freebirds book and clicked by accident. Not that much on skynyrd.

More of a pamphlet than a book, poor value!
I love this book, but I want to know more about Ronnie Van Zant. I will be buying another book soon about Ronnie and the band.
