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.
2004 THREE-NIGHT STAND FROM ATLANTA'S FABULOUS FOX THEATRE
When the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND hit Atlanta's Fox Theatre for a sold-out three-night run in 2004, they were buoyed by the critical and fan reception of what would be their final studio album, Hittin' The Note. The band had been touring heavily and were ready to settle down in their beloved Atlanta for three special nights. The shows were released by the then-nascent "Instant Live" program, contemporaneous recordings sold at shows and internet mail order only afterwards without much packaging or fanfare.
Now, the band will release--digitally March 24 and physically on April 28--via RED Distribution all three shows as The Fox Box. The 8-CD set features a remastered audio mix as well as tightening up of the song spacing. And these three September 2004 shows have a unique feature that ABB fans will appreciate: of the 53 songs performed, there is only one repeat, the sprawling "Dreams," played (three times), and each with a different voicing by the guitar soloist: DEREK TRUCKS, WARREN HAYNES and JACK PEARSON.
ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND in 2004 featured founding members GREGG ALLMAN (keyboards, vocals) and drummers BUTCH TRUCKS and JAIMOE along with longtime percussionist MARC QUINONES, guitarists WARREN HAYNES and DEREK TRUCKS and bassist OTEIL BURBRIDGE. Guitarist JACK PEARSON, who was in the band from 1997-99, was a special guest. Other guests include Derek's bandmate/wife Susan Tedeschi, guitarist Vaylor Trucks (Butch's son who was captured on the rear cover of Brothers & Sisters as a child) and keyboardist Rob Baracco (Phil Lesh Quintet/Other Ones).
Since 2002, representatives for the ABB--Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award honorees--have worked diligently to honor and respect the music of the band, which was founded in 1969. Through their own Peach Records, they have released a number of high-quality, fan-favorite shows including a 40th Anniversary DVD as well as Hittin' the Note and One Way Out CDs, among others.
