    Ed King still alive?. Ed was 'overweight' way back in 1971.

    You always had the feeling that Gary Rossington would be the 'last man standing' in Skynyrd he always had that look about him.

    Yeah it's a bit of a 'copout' having Ricky Medlock in the band playing guitar drums maybe?.

    Molly Hatchet have there own 'hardcore' following they always had strange album covers though rather 'heavy metal' looking rather then wot you would expect from a Southern-fried blues/rock band :D

    I just recently got into the "new" Molly Hatchet a few years ago, they are quite impressive for a band who has very little of the old band in place, especially live. Unlike the "new" Thin Lizzy , Lynryd Skynyrd, where I just kinda have the feeling that they are a cover band pretending to be Thin Lizzy, Lynryd Skynyrd ( no matter how good ..) the new Hatchet really feels like a later incarnation of Molly Hatchet.

    My hat is off to them, they shred !!!

    Original members or not, the band is still going strong as far as I'm concerned. "Devil's Canyon" and "Silent Reign of Heroes" (both from the 90s) are two of their best albums imo, but you can't really go wrong with any of their albums, new or old.

    For those who haven't heard it, I'd recommend 'Danny Joe Brown and the Danny Joe Brown Band'. A great album for fans of the older Hatchet stuff.

    ^^Magic told me about Danny's solo stuff but I've never picked any of his records up.

    I bought the first 3 Molly Hatchet albums when they came out...Flirtin' With Disaster would be my pick as their best all round effort. After that I lost track of them completely.
