(hennemusic) Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington released a message for fans on Wednesday thanking them for their support and giving them an update on his progress as he recovers from a heart attack that he suffered last Thursday, October 8.

"I just wanted to thank everyone for all the well wishes and support," says Rossington. "I am feeling better and taking it one day at a time and getting excellent care and support from my doctor and family. I will be back before you know it! It's gonna take more than a lil ole heart attack to keep me down… Much love and see you all soon!"

Rossington's daughter, Mary Elizabeth, broke the news on Sunday, saying "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."

Both his daughter and the band have issued statements saying that Rossington is expected to make a full recovery. Read more here.
