Gary Rossington, the only remaining original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, has reportedly suffered a serious heart attack and is under observation. According to Rossington’s daughter Mary Elizabeth, he has been dealing with heart-related issues for years and suffered a heart attack on October 8. “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,” read Mary Elizabeth’s note, which was posted to the Ronnie Van Zant Fan Page on Facebook. “Please keep him and us in your prayers, as well as all the amazing medical staff that have saved his life several times now,” the statement continues. “We were very close to losing him this time and just pray that they will develop even better techniques soon to deal with heart disease . . . He’s the toughest guy we know and hope we can keep him around as long as possible.” Copyright(c) 2015 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
