Profile John Roy “Johnny” Van Zant is an American musician and the current lead vocalist of Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. He is the younger brother of Lynyrd Skynyrd co-founder and former lead vocalist Ronnie Van Zant and .38 Special founder Donnie Van Zant.

“Round Two” is the second album released in 1981 on Polydor Records, produced by Kevin Elson and recorded at Studio One, Doraville. From start to finish, a great classic southern-hard rocking gem! The album has a different musical approach than his first album but still there’re standout tracks like “(Who’s) Right or Wrong” with great guitar riffs, the powerful ballads “Standing In The Falling Rain” and “Yesterday’s Gone”, “Drive My Car” a great southern-rock cover of the classic Beatles tune”, but also the rockin’ “Shot Down”, and “Cold Hearted Woman!”.

Strongly recommended for any southern rock lovers or basically anyone who is into the ultimate (and unmatched) classic rock genre.
