Legendary rocker Gregg Allman dead at 69

During that period, the band suffered the loss of Duane Allman after the live album and then bassist Berry Oakley after Peach. He wrote several of them - "It's Not My Cross to Bear", "Midnight Rider", "Ain't Wastin' Time No More" and "Melissa" - while others were renditions of old blues songs, including "One Way Out" and "Statesboro Blues". Despite reports, Gregg Allman has not entered hospice Gregg Allman condemns 'Bathroom. In addition to blues, the band also was known for its crystal guitar harmonies between Duane and Dickey Betts, jazz influences and a free-wheeling approach that sometimes led to 20-minute songs. Greg Allman was the front-man of the group and will leave behind an enduring legacy with his music. In 2004, Rolling Stone named The Allman Brothers Band as the #52 in their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

"WORDS ARE IMPOSSIBLE GUI GUI FOREVER, CHOOCH", the 71-year-old wrote of Allman, who she shares a son with, Elijah Blue. As a member of The Allman Brothers Band, he spent roughly four decades entertaining the world with his brand of music. Also in that final edition were guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge on bass, and Marc Quiñones on percussion.

Starting in 1990, more than 20 years after its founding, the reunited band began releasing new music and found a new audience.

Allman kept a low profile for much of the 1980s - his gritty sound didn't fit the synth-pop trends of that era - although he made a comeback with his 1987 album "I'm No Angel", which became a surprise hit on rock radio.




Drummer Butch Trucks, another founding member of the band, died aged 60 on January 24. He said that after getting sober, he felt "brand new" at the age of 50. "Now I have started taking on some spiritualism".

Allman, who played keyboard and guitar and sang with a rich, growling voice, was diagnosed with hepatitis C in 1999 and underwent a liver transplant in 2010, Billboard reported on its website. "You've been swallowed up by something you love, you know, and you're just totally engulfed".

Gregg Allman and the rest of the Allman Brothers were honored with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in 2012.
