Talk about fun for the feeble, I am an avid walker, this week been stuck thinking about this southern Rock thing...Charlie Daniels, Tom Petty, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allmans etc. Someone gave me a copy of White Mansion which is a pretty good CD, been listening to it all week now. Anyways thinking why there is so much passion for the "homeland" south of the Mason Dixon Line?? Is it some type of regional nationalism?? A lot seems to be based on the war or Yankee Agression that took place in the 1860's. What I cannot compare it to is anything simlar in the North, specifically the NE, know J. Geils touched on it, Boston had it in its title...but the best I can come up with is the whiny Bee Gee's "going back to Massachusetts"!!! Maybe it is our names like Connecticut, Rhode Island or Massachusetts etc. That make it tough to rhyme, but that does not make much sense either. Need some enlightenment about this subject as I cannot figure it out, and keep coming up with answers that do not work really well when thought out.
