Hell House

It’s known by millions, though not by name. 

It’s poured into Simple Man and every record since. Because before the first studio session, there was the Hell House. 

Deep in the swamplands south of Jacksonville, Florida, a group called Lynyrd Skynyrd got their start at a shack they called “the Hell House.” It’s where Ronnie Van Zandt, Gary Rossington, and their band fought water moccasins and mosquitoes to write and rehearse their seminal album. 

The air was thick and the sound was big at this small cabin on the creek. And it became the foundation of America’s Southern rock band.
