The Cartersville Patch reports Georgia State Patrol say the crash occurred close to midnight when Burns was driving and his vehicle left the road while making a right turn before hitting a mailbox and a tree with the front of his car. Police say Burns was not wearing a seatbelt and was the only occupant in the vehicle; it has not been determined if weather played a role in the accident. A founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Burns played in the band's pre-Skynyrd groups the Noble Five and One Percent before the members were inspired to name the group after their physical education teacher, Leonard Skinner.

Van Halen Wanted To Release Lost Early Recordings

(hennemusic) Eddie Van Halen has revealed that the group's newly-released album, "Tokyo Dome Live In Concert", wasn't the band's original plan for the follow-up to 2012's "A Different Kind Of Truth." "We were trying to figure out what to do since we didn't have time to put a studio record together," the guitarist tells the Washington Times. "My son Wolfgang is working on his own project. Dave is off doing his thing. "What I originally wanted to do was remix the original 25 song demos. That would have been really cool. But the tapes are lost. They are gone. So that was out the window." The demos Eddie refers to were recorded for Warner Brothers Records in 1977 - prior to the release of their groundbreaking self-titled debut in February of 1978. Material from those sessions has been re-recorded for inclusion on a number of Van Halen albums over the years, including the group's reunion record with original frontman David Lee Roth, "A Different Kind Of Truth." "Then we started digging through bootlegs from the club days," Eddie continues. "We tried our best to make those sound good, but ultimately it wasn't good enough to put out."
