Gregg Allman Dead At 69

Gregg Allman, who spearheaded the Southern Rock movement as a founder of the Allman Brothers Band, died May 27 at his Savannah, Ga., home. He was 69.

He had struggled with health issues for many years, including a battle with Hepatitis C, though a report Allman had entered hospice care one month ago were denied in a statement by the rocker.

"Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times," a statement on his website reads.

“I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music," Allman's longtime manager Michael Lehman wrote. "He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him.”

The last 2 years have been devastating for the loss of legendary musicians.

Allman married Cher in June 1975, and the two lived in Hollywood during their years together as tabloid favorites.[4] Their marriage produced one son, Elijah Blue Allman, who was born in July 1976.[91] He recorded his second solo album, Playin' Up a Storm, with the Gregg Allman Band, and it was released in May 1977. He also worked on an collaborative album with Cher titled Two the Hard Way, which, upon its release, was a massive failure.[73] The couple went to Europe to tour in support of both albums,[92] though the crowd reception was mixed.[93] With a combination of Allman Brothers fans and Cher fans, fights often broke out in venues, which led Cher to cancel the tour.[94] Turmoil began to overwhelm their relationship, and the two divorced in 1978.[95] Allman returned to Daytona Beach to stay with his mother, spending the majority of his time partying, chasing women, and touring with the Nighthawks, a blues band.[96] In a 2011 interview with WBUR's On Point, Allman told host Tom Ashbrook that he was also uncomfortable with his wife's celebrity lifestyle.
