Today is a sad day in music history, as it marks the anniversary of one of the biggest disasters in the history of rock.

Thursday, October 20, 1977, just three days after the release of Street Survivors, and five shows into their most successful headlining tour, Lynyrd Skynyrd's chartered Convair 240 ran out of fuel near the end of their flight from Greenville, South Carolina.
Though the pilots attempted an emergency landing on a small airstrip, the plane crashed in a forest in Gillsburg, Mississippi. Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary and co-pilot William Gray were all killed on impact; the other bandmembers suffered serious injuries.
