(Absolute Publicity) Doug Gray, founding member and lead singer of legendary southern rock group The Marshall Tucker Band, is mourning the loss of Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington, who passed away yesterday. He was 71. Rossington was the last original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd.

"This was expected but still hard to believe. Great sadness has come upon me. He was a gentleman that held it all together. Much love to his wife, Dale, who has been by his side through the good and the bad.

"May we all have a moment of prayer for Gary, Dale and the entire Lynyrd Skynyrd family. My heart is completely broken. He was King of the Hop. Marvelous players are waiting on him in heaven. May we all Ride in Peace."
