Gregg Allman, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Allman Brothers Band co-founder who was a pioneering force in the southern rock realm, has died. He was 69.




“Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years,” a statement posted to the flaxen-haired crooner’s official website read, referring to a 1999 hepatitis C diagnosis and a 2010 liver transplant. “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.”

According to Michael Lehman, Allman’s longtime manager, the star’s liver cancer returned about five years ago, and after his condition took a turn for the worse several days ago, he eventually succumbed to complications from the disease.

Allman, who died peacefully in his Savannah, Ga. home, found fame alongside older brother Duane with their popular southern rock band, which the pair founded in 1969 alongside Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson.
