Judy Van Zant

Wiki info

According to former bandmate Artimus Pyle and family members, Van Zant frequently discussed his mortality. Pyle recalls a moment when Lynyrd Skynyrd was in Japan: "Ronnie and I were in Tokyo, Japan, and Ronnie told me that he would never live to see thirty and that he would go out with his boots on, in other words, on the road. I said, 'Ronnie, don't talk like that,' but the man knew his destiny. " Van Zant's father, Lacy, said, "He said to me many times, 'Daddy, I'll never be 30 years old. ' I said, 'Why are you talking this junk? You will never be 30 years old?’ and he said, 'Daddy, that's my limit. '" Van Zant's father later noted that, "God was a jealous god. Taking him for reasons I don't know. " Ex-bandmate Ed King also reported hearing Van Zant saying he would never live to be 30 years old, saying Van Zant said it so often that he "had gotten sick of hearing it". Lynyrd Skynyrd backup singer JoJo Billingsley recalled that Van Zant had begun referring to himself as "The Mississippi Kid" in the months before his death despite being born and raised in Florida. She noted that, eerily, Van Zant's only connection to Mississippi was the fact that he would ultimately die there.
