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.

Greggs 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 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 Sin 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.
