The Southern Rock Renegade Band
The force and “Pyle” driver behind ‘Lynyrd Skynyrd’! Ronnie Van Zant told Artimus when he hired him on drums to push this quintessential guitar army band as hard as he could. Artimus did just that, with a “Vynym”!! His hard thunderous drums can now be heard with his southern rock musical brothers, The Renegades!
Lead Vocalist, Instrumentalist extraordinaire, and founder of the soulful group, ‘Wet Willie’. Jimmy’s incredible voice is easily recognizable as one of the greatest singers to ever come out of the south!
He is now front and center stage, where he belongs with The Renegades!
The ‘Killer’ keyboardist, songwriter, and one of the founding members of the Atlanta Rhythm Section! Dean has co-written many great hit songs for A.R.S. and he is now doing what he was born to do… Dean is playing and writing with his kindred spirits of the south, The Renegades!
Jeff Carlisi: http://www.campjamatlanta.com/2005/
His specialty is a passionate and fluid guitar magic that can be heard on all of the .38 Special hits! He not only put his special style on .38’s records, but Jeff co-wrote, “A Heart Needs a Second Chance”, which was the biggest chart record of all of .38 Special’s songs! He is now helping create a whole new southern sound with, The Renegades!
Drummer, Co-Producer, and Songwriter, along with Dean Daughtry, of the Atlanta Rhythm Section’s biggest hits! Robert has played on drums on many recording sessions, but he feels honored to have been asked by Al Kooper and Ronnie Van Zant to play on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Tuesday’s Gone’! He is now playing drums and making history with a whole new breed of Renegades!
They don’t call him Ed ‘Guitar’ King for nuthin! His brand of playing is one of the most copied and talked about in the world! Ed is also co-writer, with Ronnie Van Zant, on one of the biggest rock songs of all time, and one of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s signature songs, ‘Sweet Home Alabama’!
The gifted, Ed ‘Guitar’ King, along with Artimus Pyle, Jimmy Hall, Dean Daughtry, Jeff Carlisi, and Robert Nix have brought together some real rock and roll roots by the ones that really made this timeless music!!!!
Together, they are The Southern Rock Renegade Band!!!
