    I just answered a triva question about what city was Lynyrd Skynyrd headed to when the plane crash happend. Baton Rouge they were to play at LSU. I assume at the PMAC.

    Allen Collins & his wife Kathy. He's getting that look. "Why do you need another guitar? you're in Skynrd, you don't even play acoustic guitar."

    RIP Allen & Kathy Collins. Kathy, the inspiration Freebird.

    Former Arky QB Ryan Maillet died over the weekend at 35. Drowned swimming in the Gulf off Florida, probably caught in a rip tide.

    Not celebrity, but NASCAR notes the deaths of Jimmy Johnson's mother-in-law, father-in-law and an 11-year old nephew. Looks like a double murder/suicide committed by the m-i-l.
