Street Survivors: The True Story of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash Cohn's film centers around drummer Artimus Pyle his perspective on the tragic 1977 plane crash of the Lynyrd Skynyrd band. The crash claimed the lives of singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines and his backing vocalist sister Cassie Gaines, as well as their road manager Dean Kilpatrick, and the two pilots of the plane. In August of 2017, the other surviving member Gary Rossington and the estates of Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines successfully sued to stop the film from being produced. They claimed that Pyle had violated a 1988 agreement that prevented individual members from exploiting the band’s name after the crash. However in 2018, this court ruling was overturned and now Jared Cohn's film will make its debut on the June 30th 2020.
