I thought this band stopped playing after a plane crash took the lives of most of the band members in the 1970s. All I can say is that if you think the band’s decision to remove the Confederate flag as a stage backdrop makes them any more or less southern then you, my friend, are an idiot. Don’t worry, you still have a guy from Michigan who will keep southern heritage alive. And that’s all I have to say ’bout that.
