Larry Junstrom was a founder of Lynyrd Skynyrd and member of the Jacksonville-based band, .38 Special. The .38 Special bass player passed away this past Sunday, October 6 at age 70. Our librarians in Special Collections were able to find some phenomenal photos of .38 Special from the Florida Times-Union Editorial Archive Collection, which is housed at the Main Library.
