I can't believe that Skynyrd has one mention here. Kooper was such a driving force behind the band, playing on many songs. Read the book (I can't even remember the name) written by a friend of the band. Kooper's name comes up every couple of pages. Zchris87v 21:59, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
After doing the math, here are the results. Skynyrd book, Kooper gets mentioned "...every couple of pages...". You didn't say 'every other' page, so I figured every 3rd page to put a real number to the implication. Next, the Wikipedia 'Kooper' article, Skynyrd gets mentioned every page. Tally results-- Kooper in Skynyrd book is 33 percent. Skynyrd in Kooper article is 100%. Mathematically, Skynyrd gets more coverage here in Kooper than Kooper got in Skynyrd. Just an observation.

Well was he or was he not a driving force behind Skynyrd? Inanygivenhole (talk) 23:45, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
Al was their producer. If that makes him a "driving force" then the answer is yes. But if Kooper was more in the role of a "George Martin" then the answer is no, in my opinion. George played on some of the Beatles stuff also, but could not be comfortably called a "driving force" - more a contributor from a creative angle which is pretty much what Al did for Skynyrd.THX1136 (talk) 22:50, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Regarding the two paragraphs, starting with "In 2005 Martin Scorsese produced a documentary, No Direction Home: Bob Dylan" - It seems that this is Kooper's narrative of the recordings he did with Dylan in 1965+66, but that's not made clear. Whbjr (talk) 03:37, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
