Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere: Derek Hess Talks About Rossington Collins, Drumming and Ronnie Van Zant

Posted: Feb 16, 2009

Derek Hess is one of the true “unsung heroes” of Southern Rock. He was smack-dab in the middle of the whole Jacksonville scene during the glory days of the seventies, and after the Lynyrd Skynyrd airplane crash, when Gary Rossington and Allen Collins decided to form a new group called The Rossington Collins Band and Artimus Pyle was unable to play because of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident, the job went to RCB guitarist Barry Lee Harwood’s old friend, Derek Hess. The rest is history.

We spoke with Derek about the short but brilliant career of Rossington Collins, his subsequent work with The Allen Collins Band and his recent instrumental CD called Mainstream South, recorded with Barry Lee and Steve Perez.

Check out our interview, and don't forget to check out the link to our Derek Hess Photo Album!

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern!
