Calendar* Correction: Gary Rossington

Numerous websites report that on February 27, 2003, Gary Rossington, elite guitarist and a founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, had to have emergency heart surgery.  This is incorrect.

The Billboard magazine article was February 27, but as they plainly state in it, the surgery was on Tuesday, which in 2003 fell on February 25.  The newspapers USA Today and The Los Angeles Times confirm that the surgery took place on February 25.
