Street Survivors was the last Lynyrd Skynyrd album recorded by original members Ronnie Van Zant and Allen Collins, and is the sole Skynyrd studio recording with guitarist Steve Gaines. Three days after the album’s release, the band’s chartered airplane crashed en route to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, killing the pilot, co-pilot, the group’s assistant road-manager and three band members, as well as severely injuring most who survived the crash. The album performed well on the charts, peaking at #5 (their first top 5 album), as did the singles “What’s Your Name” and “That Smell,” the former a top 20 hit on the singles chart. The album was an instant success, achieving gold certification just ten days after its release, and would later go double platinum.
