The world has lost another musician and an incredibly unique voice. Gregg Allman, co founder of the Allman Brothers Band has passed away. A band that was constantly tied to tragedy, starting with Duane’s death in 1971 from a motorcycle crash, the Allman Brothers pioneered “southern rock”. It should be noted that the band members themselves tried to distance themselves from that term. “I’d rather be known as a progressive band from the South,” said guitarist Dickie Betts. Their live performances were the best in the business.
Gregg Allman was 69. RIP.
