The band was formed in Jacksonville, FL in 1979. 38 Special was founded by Donnie Van Zant, the younger brother of Lynyrd Skynyrd founder Ronnie Van Zant. After an incident in which the boys were practicing in a warehouse in the middle of nowhere, they got the idea of what they wanted to name their band. The band members were unable to exit the building when police arrived because of a faulty padlock on the door after local residents called 911 to report the noise. One of the cops said, "That's all right. We'll let this .38 special do the talking", and shot off the lock. And the rest is history.
