As a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Gregg Allman helped give birth to Southern rock, blazing a trail for a generation of musicians who were equally influenced by the blues, Southern soul, and rock.
His earthy vocals graced songs that have become rock standards, including “Midnight Rider” and “Whipping Post”, in addition to his own solo records. The band won a GRAMMY® Award in 1995 for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for “Jessica,” a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012, and their groundbreaking album At Fillmore East was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame® in 1999.
We have lost a pioneering force in American music, and our condolences go out to Gregg’s family, friends, colleagues, and music fans everywhere.
