Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington Suffers Heart Attack
Rossington's daughter Mary Elizabeth revealed the news via the Ronnie Van Zant Fan Page on Facebook writing in part, "Dad had a heart attack on Thursday. They went in to repair and unclog the two stents they did previously in the year which had a blood clot, added a third stent to one vein and in two weeks we will need to go in to do a fourth stent in one of his bypassed veins from 12 years ago."
Lynyrd Skynyrd released a statement on Tuesday, saying "As Gary recuperates after suffering a heart attack late last week, the band regrets to announce that they'll be canceling two upcoming performances. Full refunds are available at points of purchase for Friday's show in Terre Haute, IN and the Mt. Pleasant, MI show will be rescheduled in 2016. Gary is currently resting at home with his family and is expected to make a full recovery." Read more here.
