Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington, who's been battling health problems in recent years, is back in the hospital. Rossington, the sole remaining original member of the band, was admitted to St. John's Hospital in Jackson, Wyo., near where he resides, to undergo tests for a possible abdominal infection.
The band canceled a pair of weekend shows scheduled for the Hard Rock Biloxi casino in Mississippi and tweeted that "We are awaiting further info" about Rossington's condition. The casino also issued a statement saying that it "sends our thoughts and well wishes to Mr. Rossington and his family during this time."
Rossington's primary issues in the past have been with his heart, which have included operations.
Lynyrd Skynyrd is slated to play again February 23 in Kinder, La., pending Rossington's health. The group released a new album, "Last of a Dyin' Breed," in 2012.
