Rocker Gregg Allman dies at 69

Herman Weaver | 29 May, 2017, 09:11

He announced in August that he was "under his doctor's care at the Mayo Clinic" due to 'serious health issues.

Gregg considered music tours as "essential medicine for his soul", according to his website. "Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times", the statement continues. The band faced trials from addiction, health woes and heartbreak over the years, channeling their emotion into such timeless classics as "Whipping Post", "Melissa" and "Midnight Rider".

The Allman Brothers band-the band Allman founded with his guitarist brother Duane, along with guitarist Dickey Betts, bassist Berry Oakley and drummers Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson-was designed for movement. They had just finished Capricorn Studios in Macon, Georgia - and that was a great studio with all of 12 tracks - and I said we've got a perfectly good studio here.

It's a very sad news that touched Cher.

Shortly thereafter, Gregg recorded his debut studio solo album "Laid Back" in 1973, which offered his varying influences, including rhythm and blues and soul music.

Conte wants to stay 'many years' at Chelsea
"At the start of every season they tell us the rules and at Manchester and now the hands were not where they should be". He said that they have a "good chance" to win their first title in 14 years if only they can improve their consistency.

On Twitter, Cher expressed her vast sadness after the death of her ex-husband, Gregg Allman, the founder of the Allman Brothers Band with whom she had a child. His manager, Michael Lehman blamed cancer for Allman's death. He had a benevolent soul and the most attractive laughter I have heard.

The Allman Brothers Band first started in 1969 and their seminal live album "At Fillmore East" in 1971 made them household names among rock fans.

Gregg Allman worked as a paperboy to afford a Silvertone guitar, which he purchased at a Sears when he saved up enough funds. Allman and his brother returned to Castle Heights in their teen years, where they formed a band, the Misfits.

Billboard said that since Nielsen Music began tracking point-of-sale music purchases in 1991, the Allman Brothers Band has sold 9.3 million albums in the United States. However, he was forced to cancel the tour after experiencing an injury to his vocal chords. The same year, Duane, then 24, was killed in a motorcycle accident. He was the recipient of several Grammy Awards and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with many citing his work as "trail-blazing" and a rock pioneer. As the Allman Joys, they played clubs in the South and recorded a single, a version of Willie Dixon's "Spoonful". In March, he canceled performances for the rest of 2017. At separate times in the new millennium, hepatitis C treatments, a liver transplant and lung surgery sidelined him for months, but he always returned to the road with the Allmans or leading an ace solo band.

After two back-to-back tweets, she posted another tweet with a picture of Gregg, captioning it as, "Chank, Thinking bout amusing, crazy, unbelievable Macon days, dear friend". Gregg Allman I will miss you.
