Skynyrd’s Rossington in health scare
Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington has been taken to hospital in a health scare, forcing the band to cancel two shows this weekend.
They were due to play twice at the Hard Rock Biloxi weekend in the US, until Rossington contracted what’s believed to be an abdominal infection.
Skynyrd say in a statement: “Regrettably our shows on February 15 and 16 have been cancelled. Gary Rossington has been hospitalised in Wyoming.
“We are awaiting further tests and treatment – once we receive information on Gary’s status we will release additional information. Thank you for your understanding and support.”
Skynyrd appeared at Classic Rock’s Roll Of Honour awards ceremony in November, where they were presented with the Comeback Award. Their recent album Last Of A Dyin’ Breed was their highest-charting since 1977.
