Bassist Donald “Ean” Evans of the Southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd has died of cancer at his home in Mississippi.

Evans was born in Atlanta, but moved to Columbus in eastern Mississippi after marrying his wife, Eva. He joined Lynyrd Skynyrd in 2001 and had been touring regularly with the band until being diagnosed with cancer in 2008, when he cut back on performances with the band.
