Another sad chapter to Skynyrd's history. What is Ed King's connection to pinball? He co-wrote Incense and Peppermints a song featured in the Austin Powers movie and well, there's an Austin Powers pin.

Lesson here is, don't smoke. Lung cancer is no joke.

He co-wrote Sweet Home Alabama which was featured in the movie of the same name and there was a pinball in a scene background.

They had pinball at their Muscle Shoals studio. If you get a chance watch the documentary if “I leave here tomorrow” now currently on Showtime it’s excellent

The original hit by Strawberry Alarm Clock is a great song.
