About Lynyrd Skynyrd: The band has enjoyed continued success and

visibility in the past few years including a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

induction. Their American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” has passed

the 2 million mark in downloaded ringtones. With the release of their

God & Guns cd last fall, the band once again climbed the Rock Charts

with the single "Still Unbroken". High profile appearances, including

the show closer at VH1 Fashion Rocks helped to expose the band to a

younger audience. With a catalog of over 60 albums and sales beyond 30

million, Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a major cultural icon that appeals to

all generations.


About Bret Michaels: Bret Michaels, front man of the legendary rock band

Poison and hit reality shows , Nashville Star, Rock of Love, and now

Celebrity Apprentice is currently promoting his new hit single “Nothing

to Lose”, featuring Miley Cyrus. Bret has sold over 25 million records

and has scored an amazing 15 chartbusting Top 40 singles including "Talk

Dirty to Me," “Nothing But a Good Time” and the timeless #1 smash "Every

Rose Has Its Thorn." Rock of Love with Bret Michaels has been an

enormous ratings winner for VH1. The series has became the highest rated

show on VH1 and has consistently won its time slot when aired, including

multiple airings. He also is working on his autobiography with Simon and

Shuster called “Roses and Thorns.”


About 38 Special: Formed by neighborhood friends Don Barnes and Donnie

Van Zant in 1975 in Jacksonville, Florida. By the early 1980s, 38

Special began amalgamating southern rock and arena rock in their music,

thereby kicking off a string of successful albums and singles. Their

first high-charting song was "Hold On Loosely" (1981); "Caught Up In

You" (1982) and "If I'd Been The One" (1983) both hit #1 on Billboard

magazine's Album Rock Tracks chart. "Back Where You Belong" (1984)

continued the annual sequence of radio favorites, and "Second Chance"

(1989), a #1 hit on Billboard's adult contemporary chart, was sung by

former Specialist Max Carl. The current lineup consists of Barnes, Van

Zant, guitarist Danny Chauncey, bassist Larry Junstrom, keyboardist

Bobby Capps and drummer Gary Moffatt.
