“It is with deep sadness that we announce that Gregg Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia”, it said.
He’d recently cancelled all his remaining concerts for 2017, refunding fans. At separate times in the new millennium, hepatitis C treatments, a liver transplant and lung surgery sidelined him for months, but he always returned to the road with the Allmans or leading an ace solo band.
If you’re a fan of classic rock, odds are you know and love the music of Gregg Allman and the Allman Brothers Band. It featured tight guitar harmonies by DuaneAllman and Dickey Betts, a pair of drummers and the smoky, blues inflected voice of Gregg Allman.

“I can tell when he’s there, man”, Allman said. No direct cause was given, but the statement said he had “struggled with many health issues over the past several years”.
“I was out on tour with the Brothers and the end of the tour came and my manager calls me and says, ‘listen on your way home to Savannah, Georgia, we want you to stop off in Memphis and meet this guy called T-Bone Burnett, ” he said.
Since 1966 and his first scraps of success with his brother in the Allman Joys, Gregg had the voice of an icon.
Allman spent 45 years as part of the Allman Brothers band. Duane talked his brother into joining a racially integrated band, the House Rockers, shocking their mother. It is set for release later this year, though it’s worth wondering if anything will be altered with it now.
