Guitarist and original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gary Rossington, has undergone surgery to repair blockage in his arteries. The 64-year old suffered chest pains earlier this week causing the group to cancel concert dates. According to a Facebook post on Thursday (July 21), Lynyrd Skynyrd has canceled or rescheduled an additional two weeks of concerts while Rossington recuperates from heart surgery.

“The Lynyrd Skynyrd band is canceling or rescheduling the next 2 weeks of touring, while Gary Rossington recovers at home from heart surgery to repair blockage in his arteries,” the group announced via Facebook. “Currently, the band hopes to resume touring on August 4 in Woodlands, TX. The band has rescheduled Boston, MA at Blue Hills Bank Pavilion to September 23 and moved Big Flats, NY at Tag’s Summer Sound Stage to the following day, September 24. We are continuing to work on other potential re-scheduling, as well. Please stay tuned to the Lynyrd Skynyrd website and social media pages for updates.”

The only original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd still with the band, Rossington has a long history of heart problems. The guitarist underwent a quintuple bypass in 2003 and suffered a heart attack in late 2015. 

We wish Gary Rossington a full and speedy recovery.
