Gregg Allman Dead at 69

Recommended Posts

Gregg Allman died yesterday (May 27) at age 69. He made it 45 years longer than his older brother Duane, who was the group's leader. Gregg kept the Allman Brothers Band going until 2014, always adhering to the highest musical standards.

The music was rich and spacious, often wordless (as a DJ, I fielded many calls after playing "Jessica" from listeners looking for the title). The live shows were astounding, especially if you were lucky enough to catch them in the Beacon Theater, a New York venue with acoustics that seemed custom fit for the band. Gregg's musical legacy is unparalleled, as he was the top dog in the top Southern Rock band of all time.
