“The Skynyrds and I go back to the 70′s and the days and nights at the Hyatt House on Sunset in L.A. aka the Riot House,” Rodgers shares in a press release. ”In the 90′s the band introduced me to my wife Cynthia, and that’s why I am so damned happy and healthy these years.”

Johnny Van Zant of Lynyrd Skynyrd expressed similar admiration for Bad Company, adding that Rodgers is one of his favorite rock singers. Both bands have additional dates planned for spring and summer.
