Hardass P.E. Teacher at Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville Florida , Leonard Skinner, died yesterday at 77. the 'Free Bird' wailing southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd named their band after Skinner.
as the story goes, Skinner sent Ronnie Van Zant and the boys to the principal's office for having long hair, instead of his normal punishment.. Skinner kept a pair of sheers to cut unruly student's hair, but as legend goes, the boys explained they were in such a band that the music just couldn't be played by short haired musicians and Skinner took pity and spared the hair...
-note from the writer: one of my favorite songs of all time is 'i need you' from SECOND HELPING. if all you know is 'Free Bird' you have a homework assignment...
