    Neil Young sang
    "Southern Man better keep your head
    Don't forget what your good book said

    Southern Change gonna come at last
    Now your crosses are burning fast"

    and Lynyrd Skynyrd replied with the famous lines in Sweet Home Alabama
    "I heard Mr. Young sing about her
    I heard Ol Neil put her down
    I hope Neil Young will remember a Southern Man don't need him around anyhow"

    the artists acutally enjoyed a mutual respect and friendship and even tried to get together for a few gigs but it never worked out. However, I think it's safe to say that they did not share the same politics. Anyway, who's your favorite? I love both but I give the edge to Neil Young. He rocks, he goes mellow, he's funny, he's serious, he's romantic, he's political, he's an outstanding lyricist and a great story teller, and he makes every band he plays with a ton better! Here's one of my favorites from Mr. Young

    Like some of youngs work but Skynyrd wins this one hands down.
    Btw i heard someone redoing neil youngs old man on the radio and my god it was beyond horrible.
    Just some poor attempts at the english language babbling over the original music from old man.....pathetic.

    Im waiting on a blackmore vs malmsteen poll:bow:

    In some other threads I commented that you can't go wrong with either band.

    In this thread I say you can't go right with either. :laugh2:

    Needless to say I am not a fan of either.

    Skynyrd is one of my all time favorite bands. My wife and I went to see them on our honeymoon.

    Neil Young is a better songwriter but I like Skynyrd's overall sound better.

    One thing about Skynyrd is after the crash some of the surviving members put some good music down

    One of my favorites was Rickey Medlocke and his band Blackfoot

    I like Skynryd a lot but Young brings more to the table artistically then Skynyrd does.

    I saw Young get booed by 20000 plus people when he tried to play some of that techno crap stuff he experimented with. It was when he reunited with Crazy Horse. Played a bunch of great songs then tried to throw one of those in and was drowned out by the boos. He apologized and went into Cinammon Girl and the cheers began again.

    Pretty funny to see.

    Agreed....but the problem is that the band itself didn't put any good music down after the crash.
