Hughie

Hughie Thomasson (1952 – September 9, 2007) was a guitarist and singer best known for his work with Southern rock band The Outlaws. He wrote most of the songs for The Outlaws including their three biggest hits, "Hurry Sundown", "There Goes Another Love Song," and "Green Grass and High Tides." After The Outlaws disbanded in the early 1990's, Thomasson joined Lynyrd Skynyrd as a third guitarist from 1996 until 2005. He left Lynyrd Skynyrd to reform The Outlaws. Thomasson died from a heart attack on the night of September 9, 2007 at his home in Brooksville, Florida.

Comments

Not enough can be said about Hughie Thomasson. He was one of the greatest guitarists of all time with a radio friendly voice and a brilliant songwriter which became the driving force behind the commercial success of the Outlaws in the 70's & 80's and 30 years later, still touring on a regular basis and playing to sold out shows countrywide. Like so many before him, it ended all too soon, but he has left us with a legacy that not only includes his music contributions, but genuine good will...one last ride.
