Lynyrd Skynyrd founding member and guitarist Gary Rossington is recovering from recent heart surgery.

According to the band’s press release, Rossington had been experiencing fatigue and underwent surgery to replace a leaky heart valve back on July 31.  As a result, the band have postponed two shows this weekend in Vegas and California.

The BB&T Pavilion show scheduled for 8/30 is still on as of now.

All of us at MGK wish Gary Rossington a speedy recovery!
