Say what you will about the present day Skynyrd but on this one I am 100% on their side. The idea of Artimus getting to tell the " real" Skynyrd story is laughable. I dig Arti and all and glad Warren has always been so nice to him but he never was the same after the crash and lives in a fantasy world about his place in Skynyrd history.

Nobody in the "Current Skynyrd" was in the plane crash, but [Gary Rossington] so its his account, and Mr Pyle's. Rossington was badly injured, and likely not conscious after the crash. I've heard him talk crap about Artimus being a coward, and running away and hiding after the crash, when in reality, it was Artimus who waded through a swamp and ran for help, to a nearby farmhouse.

I met Gene Odum and Coach Skinner outside the Florida Theatre at the benefit for Gary Smalley.
Gene was none too happy with the "new" band. Gene felt like they were being greedy.
Artie already got the short end of the stick when he signed a buyout agreement.
Now Gary and Judy are sicking their lawyers on Artie to settle a silly grudge.
Gene Odum is right.

I saw the title of this thread and figured it had to be about the NY Knicks.

Lynryrd Skynyrd might be the only organization on the planet that is more screwed up than the NY Knicks.

Griff and pops I've got to agree with tbomike on this one. Artimus is a great drummer and a heck of and interesting cat and nobody can take away his contributions during the time he was with Skynyrd. Gary Rossington is a great guitarist and he has come off as greedy and cold hearted as the de facto leader of the post crash Skynyrd band; however, because of his leadership the post crash Skynyrd is probably 10x more successful monetarily than the original band ever was. Created music aside the p/c Skynyrd has consistently put on some great shows and entertained thousands of people. A couple of the things Gary has done that I personally thought were cool were brought Rickie Medlocke and Hughie Thommasson on board and doing the first two albums live and releasing them on DVD. Which brings us back to Artie, he left (or was forced to leave) because he was charged with and pled guilty to child molestation. Artie was hauled in the relatively recent past for failure to register as a sex offender. I doubt that part of the story will be included in the film. Don't y'all?

I believe what Artimus told me when I met him at Leon's memorial service.
And I'll just leave it at that.

At least there is still the music.

First of all, the 73-77 Skynyrd made it possible for the current cover band to milk that money cow, second, Artimus' stepdaughter recanted her lies about being molested, third you won't hear about that in the movie, because its about the plane crash.

The victim recanted? Was Artimus exonerated?

As flakey as Artie seems, he may win.

If it wasn't for CMT, good bet the current LS would only be making beer drinking money.

There is a semi recent Youtube of Artimus out there where he states the facts as he sees them, pre all this about a movie.

I watched it and I found it hard to not see his point of view.

If I can find it, I'll post it.

Edit: not that it will change any opinions

I don't really have a dog in this hunt. I thought the 1987 and '88 tribute tours were great and done with the right amount of respect for the band's legacy, but things changed and they lost me after that. But this thread seems to have gone off-base, in my view. Artie quit in mid-1991, I believe in the middle of a show, because (according to Artie, of course) there were problems with booze and cocaine and the band's inter-relationships were toxic.

Per wiki:

In 1993, Pyle was arrested for attempted capital sexual battery and lewd assault on two female children to which he eventually pled no contest, causing him to be registered as a sexual offender. Pyle denies the allegations and claims he accepted a plea to spare the children a trial. In 2007, Pyle was arrested for failure to register as a sexual offender in St. Johns County, Florida. For this charge, he was acquitted by a jury in 2009.



So the molestation issue was ~18-24 months after he quit the band and had nothing to do with Artie's involvement with LS. Or rather, nothing to do with him leaving the band anyway.

I saw the original Lynyrd Skynyrd at least five times. Never saw the new version. I'm guessing it costs a lot more to buy a ticket to the new LS, than it did for the true version. Maybe that has something to do with their economic success?

Well excuse me ... Let's just call him St. Artemis ... So Artie left the band because of the "toxic environment" but now he'd like to make some money off the band other than playing their music in his current band. His trial for "capital sexual battery and lewd assault" on "two" children was after he left. (Wonder if that would affect him ever being asked to rejoin.) He was acquitted for failing to register as a sex offender in Fla. ( I seem to remember him being arrested in Asheville. Same deal I assume.) He plead "no contest" to spare the children a trial? I smell something too Pops. If one of the victims recanted ... I don't know ... I'd probably look to getting the charges dropped. Absolutely no doubt the 73 - 77 versions of LS paved the way the various post crash incarnations to make a good living, but they (the post crash Skynyrds ) have kept the music alive in the same way the various ABB entities since 89 have kept "their" music alive. As far as ticket prices argument for financial success ... I again smell something. Inflation and the cost of living have gone up. That $5 ticket and $20 lid in 75 costs like $60 and $300 respectively now days. Now it seems somebody wants to make a movie telling "Artie's" side of the story. Again ... I smell that smell ... can't you smell that smell. No wonder the current Skynyrd camp and families of those killed in the crash don't want it aired.
