This vintage band tee is from the 80s and it pays tribute to the southern rock group the Rossington Collins Band. The group was founded by Gary Rossington and Allen Collins, and it was a project they put together following the devastating plane crash that took the lives of three of their Lynyrd Skynyrd bandmates. Two other surviving members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Billy Powell and Leon Wilkeson were also a part of the group, and they recruited vocalist Dale Krantz, who would later go on to marry Gary Rossington.

After the tragic deaths of Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, and Cassies Gaines, things were looking grim for Lynyrd Skynyrd. The remaining members of the band reunited once in 1979 to perform at Charlie Daniels' Volunteer Jam, and it was this performance that helped motivate Rossington and Collins to form a new group. The band specifically chose Krantz as their vocalist in order to set their former work apart from this new musical chapter of their lives. The hope was that a female vocalist would create a much different sound. The group managed to release two albums before they disbanded in 1982. Both Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere and This Is the Way managed to make it to the Top 40 of the Billboard 200.

Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. There are multiple holes on the back and discoloration on the back and sleeve, see pics.
