I actually remember thinking about this one in school. I was under the impression a guy named Lenard Skinard had an album called Lenyrd Skynyrd, kind of a play on self titled albums, or that it changed every album. I dont listen to much rock..
But it was probably the poorly educated rock fan sitting next to me in study hall who was at fault. He drew a picture of a "CHONIC" leaf once, so. Not a bad artist but not so great with letters n such
He was a PE teacher at Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville in the late 1960s when he sent a group of students to the principal's office because their hair was too long. they were suspended and told to get their hair cut.

The spelling variations appear to be the most common ones, I've noticed.It's easy to see how flexible such a change could be.
You have brought up a reason for the band's name. Please TheConstruKctionofLight, I'm curious to hear how this post came to you.
Lol, it's an odd kind of question.I'm wondering if the info is new to you, or if you were aware of the way they decided to name themselves before reading the thread....

I get where you're coming from - but it doesn't change what's happening with reality right now; for myself and many others -
ETA: Someone said these threads are "un needed". I disagree.

Spelling errors are not the basis for a scientific phenomenon.
It has always been Lynyrd Skynyrd.
