Oh God, we know they (and we) are getting old when one of our heroes has to stop touring due to hip replacement surgery.
Billy Powell, one of the original members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, had hip replacement surgery in Jacksonville, Florida on Wednesday, May 21.
“Billy's hip had continued to give him dislocation problems and it was determined that a revision was the only possible solution,” says Lynyrd Skynyrd manager
Billy will be recovering over the next 4 weeks and will have to wear a hip brace for the next 3 months.
He will join the tour again in July.
