Gregory Lenoir Allman - Dec 8, 1947 - May 27, 2017
 
Posted on Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 03:59 PM
It is with deep sadness that we announce that Gregg Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia.

Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.

Gregg’s long time manager and close friend, Michael Lehman said, “I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music. He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him.”

Gregg is survived by his wife, Shannon Allman, his children, Devon, Elijah Blue, Delilah Island Kurtom and Layla Brooklyn Allman; 3 grandchildren, his niece, Galadrielle Allman, lifelong friend Chank Middleton, and a large extended family. The family will release a statement soon, but for now ask for privacy during this very difficult time.

The family suggests that tributes to Gregg can be made to the Gregg Allman Scholarship Fund at The University of Georgia or the Allman/Lehman Endowed Scholarship at Syracuse University.

Posted on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 - 04:09 PM


Monday, Feb 20, in Macon, Georgia at the Cox Capitol Theatre, Butch Trucks' family and friends held a private memorial service celebrating his life. Memories were shared and stories were told, and it was abundantly clear that Butch had just as profound an impact on people as he did on the music we love so much.

Members of the Allman Brothers Band, Les Brers, the Freight Train Band, Vaylor Trucks and guests performed for us, and the music has never been more poignant. Please continue to send your much appreciated love to the Trucks family, and let Butch's passion and drive inspire you to reach ever higher in your daily lives.

GREGG ALLMAN CANCELS TOUR DATES

ALL DATES SCHEDULED BEYOND OCTOBER 16 CURRENTLY CONFIRMED TO TAKE PLACE

Gregg Allman has cancelled all tour dates starting with his appearance at Scranton, PA's Peach Music Festival on August 12 and going through the Clearwater, FL Jazz Festival on October 16 due to serious health issues. He's currently under his doctor's care at the Mayo Clinic.

"I want to thank my fans and friends for supporting me while I rest up and focus on getting better and back on the road as soon as I can," Allman says. "I've been working hard with my band, my pride and joy, to play our music for everyone. We'll see y'all in October."

Allman's first date back will be a performance at his very own Laid Back Festival at the Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA, on October 29. All dates after that are currently confirmed to take place.

Please Be With Me on Amazon's Best Books of the Year
 
Posted on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 06:29 AM


Galadrielle Allman's wonderful book, Please Be With Me: A Song for My Father, Duane Allman is on Amazon.com's Best Books of the Year – in both the memoir and humor/entertainment categories.

The book is available in hardcover, paperback and audio book editions.

Galadrielle Allman’s memoir is at once a rapturous, riveting, and intimate account of one of the greatest guitar prodigies of all time, the story of the birth of a band that redefined the American musical landscape, and a tender inquiry of a daughter searching for her father in the memories of others.

This quote from Gregg Allman sums it up: “Duane Allman was my big brother, my partner, my best friend. I thought I knew everything there was to know about him, but Galadrielle’s deep and insightful book came as a revelation to me, as it will to everyone who reads it.”

Our thanks to Galadrielle Allman for writing and sharing this intimate memoir of her father, who means so much to so many of us... and congratulations on making the Best Books of 2014 lists - we heartily agree!
