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.

GREGG ALLMAN CANCELS TOUR DATES
THROUGH OCTOBER 16 DUE TO SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES

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.

Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA
 
Posted on Thursday, May 21, 2015 - 02:05 PM

A new Gregg Allman CD+DVD is coming out August 7, 2015.


On January 14, 2014, Gregg Allman brought his solo band to Macon for a performance at the venerable Grand Opera House, a 1,000 seat jewel of a theatre that was built in 1884. It was in this intimate setting that Gregg Allman Live: Back To Macon, GA was recorded.


Gregg took to the Grand Opera House stage with a group that, as he put it, “is a real kick-ass band.” Featuring Scott Sharrard on guitar, bassist Ron Johnson, Ben Stivers on keyboards, drummer Steve Potts, Allman Brothers veteran Marc Quinones on percussion, saxophonists Jay Collins and Art Edmaiston and Dennis Marion on trumpet, these eight players formed one of the best solo units Allman had fronted in years. With Gregg settled in behind his familiar Hammond B-3, Live: Back to Macon, GA kicks off with the familiar strains of “Statesboro Blues,” this time delivered with a horn-influenced sway. “I love having a horn section, man; it adds a real swing to the band,” Gregg noted. The crowd energy amped up another notch when Scott Sharrard picked out the opening licks to “I’m No Angel,” the title track to Gregg’s 1986 comeback album.

Gregg Allman to Receive Classic Rock's Living Legend Award
 
Posted on Thursday, September 18, 2014 - 05:38 PM


Gregg Allman is to receive the Living Legend award at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour ceremony on Tuesday, November 4 at the Avalon in Hollywood. Previous recipients of the award include Black Sabbath, Jeff Beck, Lemmy, Jimmy Page and Alice Cooper.


“I am so very honoured to be receiving this award from Classic Rock", says Allman. "The magazine is one of my favourites and they are always so generous to me and the Brothers."


"Where can you start with Gregg Allman?", says Classic Rock editor Siân Llewellyn. "The rock'n'roll world would be a very different (and far lesser) place without him. As a founding member and guiding light of the Allman Brothers Band and a hugely influential solo artist, Gregg has touched the lives of rock fans all over the globe for over four decades. I'm thrilled that we can call him Classic Rock Magazine's Living Legend 2014."


Greg Allman was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1995 alongside the Allman Brothers band, and in 2012 the group was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 54th Annual Grammys. Only last month, the band's classic At Fillmore East (now available as an expanded set) was described by Classic Rock as "a cast-iron classic and the ultimate double-live album".


This is the 10th anniversary of the Class Rock Roll Of Honour, and the first time the event has been hosted outside London.

Gregg & Jam
 
Posted on Sunday, February 20, 2005 - 01:36 PM
By: Anthony James

A black Corvette pulls up and parks curbside directly outside the front doors to the hall. The driver doesn’t care about parking tickets, he intends to get in there, hit the head, and visit the band. He steps out of his car, looks around, instinctively drawn to a giant of a man standing just outside the entrance.

Hogweed is out for a break between sets, enjoying a smoke with the doormen. He looks up and recognizes Gregg on sight, and even though he is as much an Allman brother as I, he’s been my own personal crewmember for years: The man knows better than to glower. Mere size and one lazy eye are quite enough, thanks. Gregg takes notice of the crowd in pursuit, winks, points them out to Hog, and asks him to help quickly get them through to the inside.
