Lynyrd Skynyrd's Billy Powell Undergoes Emergency Surgery

Billy Powell, keyboard player and original member of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Lynyrd Skynyrd, underwent an emergency partial revision 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 Ross Schilling of Vector Management.

Billy will be recovering over the next 3-6 weeks and will have to wear a hip brace for the next three months. It is expected that Billy will rejoin Lynyrd Skynyrd on tour sometime in July. The band will tour with an interim keyboardist in the meantime while Billy recovers.

We here at Nightwatcher's House Of Rock wish Billy a speedy recovery.
