Lynyrd Skynyrd have canceled their concert scheduled for tonight because of a “medical emergency” involving Gary Rossington. The 65-year-old guitarist is the band’s only member from the original lineup.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat – the hometown Florida paper where Lynyrd Skynyrd were scheduled to perform tonight – the exact cause of the medical issue is not known.

Rossington has had at least two heart procedures within the past 18 months. The first was surgery in July 2016, when a series of band shows had to be canceled. He had another heart-related issue this past August. He suffered a heart attack in October 2015 that sidelined the band for a period.

The latest procedure from three months ago was performed to “address some blockage in his arteries to his heart.” At the time, he was advised to stay off the road for a week.
