Billy Powell

Best known for his time as Lynyrd Skynyrd's unique keyboardist, Billy Powell was born on (June 3, 1952) in Corpus Christi, TX. His father was a Navy man, and so Powell spent some of his childhood in Italy. Before he was nine years old, his father passed away, and the family moved back to the United States where Powell attended a military boarding school in Florida. He took piano training during this time, but hardly needed the lessons. Some people are just born with an ear for music, with a gift for playing what tunes they like, and young Powell was so blessed.
