Southern Rock Icon Gregg Allman Passes Away At 69

Founding member of the Allman Brothers Band and southern rock icon Gregg Allman passed away at his home in Savannah, Georgia today at the age of 69.

Allman died due to liver cancer complications at his home surrounded by family and friends.

He will be buried in Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia where 2 other members of the Allman Brothers rest.

This music icon will be missed, and the legacy of his musical contributions through the decades lives on.

Allman was born in Nashville, Tennessee on December 8, 1947.  Up until his passing, he was working on a new album to be released soon, but no date has been announced.

For his work in music, Allman was referred to as a Southern rock pioneer[1] and received numerous awards, including several Grammys; he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.  His distinctive voice placed him in 70th place in the Rolling Stone list of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time”.  (Source: Wikipedia)
