Yee-haw

Introducing Edge of Forever, Kansas's premiere Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band. From their Myspace:

The drums, keyboard, guitars and bass guitar work have been meticuliously studied, polished and served up hot at every performance, with their stage show presentation of one 3 hr. non-stop set of everybody’s favorites with all of the stage props and the pounding southern/blues/rock pulse of Skynyrd.

Only a few artists have the audacity to play three hour concerts. Bruce Springsteen plays marathon sets, but he wrote Born to Run. Metallica can beat a dead horse for at least three hours, but they might play "Battery". Somehow this hairy, snakeskinned collection of bar-rockers has earned the right to three self-gratifying hours of Lynyrd Skynyrd nostalgia. If Springsteen can, why can't they?

In case you were wondering, Edge of Forever insist the prominent displays of Confederate flags represent "heritage not hatred". Nice try, wrong state.
