Birthday wishes to Donnie, who turns 60 today, born June 11, 1952 in Jacksonville, Florida.

His name is synonymous with Southern Rock Royalty.

His name also rhymes with his late brother Ronnie and his other brother Johnny, as well as his sister Bonnie, father Lonnie and mommy, Connie.  No relation to Yanni or Dhani.

O.k. Seriously.

Donnie's the older brother of Lynyrd Skynyrd's Johnny, and the younger brother of Skynyrd's original lead singer, Ronnie, who died in the 1977 plane crash.

That's it as far as I know.

Donnie's best known as the singer and guitarist for 38 Special.

The band is currently on tour and will be in Red Bank at the Count Basie Theatre on August 23rd.
