WORDS ARE IMPOSSIBLE GUI GUI?
According to the Allman Brothers Band, Allman had battled many health issues over the years. The cause of death wasn’t given, but the musician’s longtime manager, Michael Lehman, told CNN he died following complications from liver cancer.
“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,” a message on the band’s website said. “Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.”
Allman’s bluesy tones and musicianship with the organ made him a pioneer of southern rock. Urban, Brad Paisley and Travis Tritt were among the Grammy-winning country music artists singing Allman’s praises.
Rest in peace Greg Allman peace and love to all the family ?????????????
Musicians weren’t the only ones paying homage to the musical great.
Almost Famous director Cameron Crowe thanked Allman in a tweet “for the inspiration, and for those many holy nights on stage,” and Captain America star Chris Evans tweeted that the classic tune Whipping Post, which was famously performed for 22 minutes on the 1971 live album At Filmore East, would be “on repeat all day today.”
