Before Lynyrd Skynyrd took the stage to rock the Comcast Center at the WZLX 27th Anniversary Concert in Mansfield, guitarist Rickey Medlocke joined Chuck Nowlin backstage to talk about the band.

He explained that the band’s new LP, Last of a Dyin’ Breed, references themselves as well as fellow classic rock bands like ZZ Top, The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and AC/DC as classic bands with incredible longevity rocking through four or five different decades.

“We’re all the last of our kind in the music business…We still practice our instruments, you know?” he joked.

He went on to explain that the band recorded Last of a Dyin’ Breed mostly live, with everyone performing together for a single take. That classic, raw recording style is rarely seen in modern rock music.

“We just went in and did it man, and you know what? It was enjoyable,” he said of the process.

Medlocke followed that up with a fantastic performance to kick off the fun at the Comcast Center Saturday night. Check out the full Chuck Nowlin interview below.
