Mr Leonard Skinner RIP

News reaches us this afternoon of the death of Mr Leonard Skinner. Skinner, a school teacher and, later, a property dealer, was the quasi-eponymous inspiration of American rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Some of the band were pupils in Skinner's class when, one fine day, he incurred their ire by sending them to the school principal for having long hair. And the rest is history.

Let's pray Mr Skinner has gone to his sweet home or, at the very least, is on his way there.

Oh, this takes me back! "One More from the Road" is one of the truly great albums...
