Lynard Skynard's Gary Rossington ill


Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington has been hospitalized with an abdominal infection.

His illness forced the cancellation of the band's concerts this weekend in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Lynyrd Skynyrd say they will release more information once they get it. They don't have another concert scheduled until March 15 in Chicago.
