Were any of Lynyrd Skynrd's children born in London?

Hello,
I'm wondering if anyone can help me with a question. I'm from the UK and was born in London in February 1976. My mother said that while she was in hospital having me, there was a lady in the bed next to her who was the wife/was of an American rock musician and had gone into labour while the group was on tour, hence her ending up in this hospital. Unfortunately, my mum can't remember the name of the group or many details except that the lady was blonde and curly haired and she is sure had twins either the same day I was born or the following day. Also that she said the group had long hair and looked 'like hippies'.She also thinks her husband was the guitarist in the group. Doing a bit of research online, the only US rock group who were playing in London in February 76 were Lynryd Skynyrd who apparently played the Hammersmith Odeon on February 15th. I was born on February 7th 76 in Charing Cross Hospital which happens to be in Hammersmith, London. Which makes me think it fits also. I'm trying to find out who it was as apparently when said husband came in to visit his wife, he saw me in the cot and picked me up thinking I was a cute baby. :-) So it be kind of fun to know which famous rock musician that was! My mum remembers that all these fans turned up outside the hospital as the other members who were on tour then also came to visit the wife. I'm thinking it might be Gary Rossington? I don't know though and was wondering if anyone else might be able to help. Thanks!

Actually, I'm not sure if she was the wife or girlfriend.
