BREAKING NEWS: Gregg Allman has passed away
We're getting word the rock 'n roll legend Gregg Allman has passed away at his home in Savannah, Georgia at the age of 69.
Allman co-founded The Allman Brothers in Macon, Georgia back in the late 60's along with Duane Allman. They typified that southern rock blues sound that came to prominence in the 70's. Gregg was named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.
He was also inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Allman had reportedly battled a number of medical issues in the last few years, including hepatitis C and a liver transplant back in 2010. Other members of the band who've passed include Gregg's brother Duane Allman, who died in 1971, along with bass player Berry Oakley in 1972, and most recently Butch Trucks earlier in 2017.
