Skynyrd Singer Hospitalized

A Staph infection landed Johnny Van Zant in the hospital.  The lead singer of Lynyrd Skynyrd was forced to deal with the aggressive infection while Skynyrd was touring in the upper mid-west over the weekend.  The condition has resulted in cancellation of a couple of appearances. The Southern Rocker mainstays had to bow out of a Monday (8/8) appearance on short notice. Jonny Lang was bumped-up to headline that date, with fans given the option of refunds.  Wednesday (8/10) at the Buffalo Chip during the Sturgis Bike Rally in South Dakota has also been nixed.
Suffering from what is described as '...a severe Staph infection and multiple symptoms related to infection' on the Skynyrd web site, Van Zant is expected to be out of action for at least a week.
