Publisher's Summary

Former tour manager and plane crash survivor Ron Eckerman reveals the rigors of life on the road as Lynyrd Skynyrd takes the world by storm in 1976, and the ironic turn of events preceding the tragic plane crash in 1977. Ron narrated this audio originally in 2011.
Ron lost a one year battle with acute myeloid leukemia in May of 2014. He asked just a few
weeks prior to his passing to re-release the paperback, add photos, and donate any proceeds to the Leukemia Foundation. A book about Ron's cancer battle, The Last Tour: Love, Laughter, and Tears was released in November of 2014 by his wife and caregiver, about his courageous battle against leukemia. He never gave up hope and he never stopped smiling. It is also available on Amazon as in paperback and Kindle, and will soon be released in audio. The Last Tour: Love, Laughter, and Tears by Carolyn Day, and proceeds will also go to the Leukemia Foundation.

Loved this book, a great tribute to the original band.

Very well written acconunt of Lynyrd Skynyrd in the early years and up until the crash. Ron Eckerman is an incredibly interesting and brilliant man, his stories about life on the road were entertaining and gave a behind the scenes look for any Skynyrd fan.

SKYNYRD'S LAST 2 YEARS

THIS IS A GREAT DAY BY DAY VIEW OF SKYNYRD'S LAST 2 YEARS. NARRATED BY ASST. TOUR MANAGER RON ECKERMAN. HE TAKES THE BLAME FOR THE CRASH, HARD TO LIVE WITH THAT. HE TELLS MANY STORIES ABOUT THE BAND. ONLY NEGATIVE IS, HE SOMETIMES TALKS ABOUT HIS PERSONAL LIFE, BUT NOT TOO MUCH. IF YOU ARE A BIG FAN LIKE ME, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. IF YOUR NOT A FAN, YOU PROBABLY WON'T CARE ABOUT THE STORIES, BUT I DO!!
