What is Garry Rossington’s early life & net worth?

Gary Rossington was born in Jacksonville, Florida, on December 4, 1951. He came from a musical background and started playing guitar early. 

As a youngster, he created his first band with a few friends and began performing gigs around town. Despite his early musical talent, Rossington suffered in school and eventually quit in the ninth grade.

Rossington co-founded Lynyrd Skynyrd with fellow musicians Ronnie Van Zant and Allen Collins in the early 1970s. The band’s name is a tribute to a high school professor that each friend had in common.

Leonard Skinner was the name of that professor. Skinner was well-known for his strict dress code regulation, prohibiting guys from wearing long hair.

Skinner posed an issue for several band members, who were growing their hair in the style of many rock performers at the time.

To honor their old instructor, they named their band Lynyrd Skynyrd, an intentional misspelling of Skinner’s name.

Gary also survived the Louisiana-Mississippi border plane crash in 1977 that killed his three band members.

According to the Celebrity Net Worth, he had a net worth of 12 million dollars at the time of his death.
