Come and Go Blues


Gregg Allman at the keyboard and his brother Duane on guitar in 1971

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.
