The Last Rebel (1993)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Lynyrd Skynyrd

Johnny Van Zant may not have the innate swagger of his late brother, Ronnie, Lynyrd Skynyrd's former lead singer. But give him three steps and he'll saunter a good Dixie mile in Ronnie's hat. Between them, guitarists Gary Rossington, Ed King, and Randall Hall generate enough feedback on The Last Rebel to satisfy any unrepentant '70s Ripple-er's thirst for ear blood. Besides, having the dumb nerve to title a song ''Born to Run'' is worth at least half a grade. B
