Lynyrd Skynyrd Bring Bikers, Babes and Builders to ‘Last of a Dyin’ Breed’ Video
Lynyrd Skynyrd have a pretty good feel for their audience, so it should come as no surprise that their latest video, ‘Last of a Dyin’ Breed,’ gives the viewer a fair share of bikers, babes, and tips of the hat to their southern roots.
The group recently issued the video for the title track from their latest album, and the video finds a gang of bikers motoring up the highway towards a new bar that’s being erected by the band. Skynyrd and their builder buddies start from scratch with an empty and clean bar, but have a floor plan for everything needed, including a stripper pole.
The video jumps back and forth between the bikers cruising down the highway and the new bar coming together piece by piece, paint stroke by paint stroke. The Skynyrd boys add some photo plaques and memorabilia as the final touches, then open the doors to their first customers, who are greeted with a bevy of young women waiting to party.
For the most part, the Skynyrd members stay out of the video and let the bikers and babes take center stage. The good times finally come to an end with all of the bar patrons turning and posing for the camera while the final notes of ‘Last of a Dyin’ Breed play. Then the camera pulls back from the bar to reveal a garage door with the band’s logo emblazoned on the front.
While many of the band’s original members have passed on, the current lineup that carries on the name is still keeping their tradition and spirit alive, and singer Johnny Van Zant said in a recent interview that he hopes the group will have many more years of recording and performing.
