What about Gary? Off stage, is he a little sullen, jaded? Has he seen maybe one too many lawsuits?

"I don't know if he's jaded. You've got to realize that Gary Rossington has been to hell and back and come out on the other side. Here is a guy who has suffered through a lot of personal tragedies and here he is, man, bigger than life, standing on stage, still playing. As a matter of fact, all of us have suffered through things. Hughie has, I have, Johnny, Billy, Leon, and it really makes up who we are. We went through it, we came out on the other side. I've got to tell you, I've got the utmost respect for Gary, and the fact that he did persevere and came through it and cleaned his act up and he's out their playing music every night, doing what he loves to do and play guitar. He's a guitar player, that's what he does and that's what he loves to do, and he'll do it until he decides he's had enough, and who knows when that will be. I think his style reflects... Gary is a little bit of a background guy. He's quiet, and yes, he's a little bit more subdued, much more subdued than I am."

What are the main set list changes we might see this year as opposed to the last couple of years?
