Gregg Allman, best known as the co-founder and leader of the rock-and-roll and Southern rock band The Allman Brothers Band, passed away on May 27, 2017, at the age of 69. Gregg, born in Nashville on December 8, 1947, was widely regarded as one of the most influential and beloved rock musicians of his generation. His gruff yet bluesy baritone, slippery Hammond B-3 organ playing, and extraordinary songwriting and singing style distinguished him in a range of music spanning blues, country, R&B, soul, gospel, rock, and jazz. Gregg earned several Grammys as well as other awards, became a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and his impact and iconic status as a musician was unsurpassed. Influenced by his brother Duane, Gregg was a catalyst in the shaping of Southern-influenced rock music and a true musical pioneer. Gregg’s powerhouse solo album Laid Back and his work with other groups besides The Allman Brothers Band, including The Gregg Allman Band, the Allman Joys, and Hour Glass, further solidified his reputation as a brilliant musician. He is survived by his daughter Delilah, his son Devon, and many other family members. His life and influence will continue to be celebrated by fans around the world.
