PWM DRUMS UP SKYNYRD ROYALTIES

The artist royalties of the late drummer Bob Burns, a founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, are now the property of Primary Wave Music.

The multimillion-dollar deal encompasses all recordings from the band’s 1973 debut album, Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd, and its 1974 follow-up, Second Helping. Included are the hits “Free Bird,” “Gimme Three Steps” and “Sweet Home Alabama.” Burns spent a decade with Skynyrd, departing in 1974.

“Lynyrd Skynyrd’s first two albums are timeless and are celebrated to this day,” said PWM SVP of Business & Legal Affairs Samantha Rhulen. “To have Bob Burns’ contribution to this iconic music as part of our catalog is an incredible honor and the team at Primary Wave will ensure that his legacy is recognized by generations to come.”

Burns, who co-wrote one song, Pronounced's “Mississippi Kid,” while with the band, died in 2015 in a car accident.
