R.I.P. Billy Powell


Jacksonville News is reporting that the long-time keyboard player for Lynyrd Skynyrd has died. Billy Powell was 56.

Billy Powell, a longtime keyboard player for Lynyrd Skynyrd who survived the band’s 1977 plane crash, died at his Orange Park condo early this morning, according to police.

Orange Park Police Chief James Boivin said Powell called 911 from his condo in Club Continental and was pronounced dead at 1:52 a.m. after rescue crews performed CPR on him. Boivin said he was told Powell had an appointment with his heart specialist Monday but never made the appointment.

  1. Sad, sad. I read about it when I had access to a computer after work today.

  2. Heard that on the radio early this morning.
    To die so young, after miraculously escaping death thirty years ago, is truly sad.
    He was a good’un.

  3. Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death, not AIDs.
