Description

Featuring rare interviews and never-before-seen archive, If I Leave HereTomorrow takes viewers on a trip through the history, myth and legend of thegreatest American rock band ever! Rising from the swamps of the Deep Souththese good ol’ boys from Jacksonville, FL came to define an era with their hardrocking boogie-woogie sound, their drunken and dangerous antics, and theircontroversial use of the rebel flag. The film also serves as a portrait of bandleader Ronnie Van Zant; Simple Man, Country Boy, Whiskey Rock-a-Roller, apoet and prophet for the common man whose life was cut tragically short, butwhose legacy endures to this day.The film is primarily narrated by Gary Rossington, the last of the Street Survivors,founding member along with Ronnie Van Zant and Allen Collins, who remains theonly original member still in the band today. His recollections, from the beginningto the very end, mingle with the tales of drummer Artimus Pyle and “Sweet Home”co-writer Ed King, interviews with the late drummer Bob Burns and “Honkette”JoJo Billingsley, producer Al Kooper, and recently discovered interviews with thelate founding members Allen “Freebird” Collins and Leon “Mad Hatter” Wilkeson.And Lead Redneck, singer and lyricist Ronnie Van Zant, captured in radiointerviews, comes vividly to life through his own words and the stories andmemories of the people who made music with him.
