Rock Doc ‘Lynyrd Skynyrd — I’ll Never Forget You: The Last 72 Hours of Lynyrd Skynyrd’ Due on DVD Dec. 13 From MVD

The rock documentary Lynyrd Skynyrd — I’ll Never Forget You: The Last 72 Hours of Lynyrd Skynyrd will come out on DVD Dec. 13 from MVD Entertainment Group.

At the height of its fame in 1977, the popular southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd was struck with tragedy — a plane crash that killed the band’s founder and lead singer Ronnie Van Zant along with Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary and co-pilot William Gray. I’ll Never Forget You: The Last 72 Hours of Lynyrd Skynyrd chronicles the story of three survivors: security guard Gene Odom, lead backup singer Leslie Hawkins and guitar tech Craig Reed. The survivors give their firsthand accounts of the wild times of the band, the 72 hours leading to the crash, the harrowing crash itself and its aftermath.

The documentary features behind-the-scenes film footage of life with the band before the crash, dramatic reenactments illustrating key dramatic scenes, and CG animations — including a simulation of the plane crash that matches the NTSB report. It also includes interviews with four first responders, filmed on location at the crash site in Gillsburg, Miss.

Based on Odom’s book I’ll Never Forget You, the documentary offers the fond remembrance of one man’s journey with this legendary band, but more importantly, the loss of his dearest friend. The film weaves the three survivors’ stories together to paint a picture of what might have been and the web of tragic decisions leading to the plane crash that forever altered their lives — and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s place in history.
