greggallmann smallMusik-Legende und Mitbegründer der ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND Gregory LeNoir Allman ist im Alter von 69 Jahren am 27. Mai 2017 verstorben. Diese traurige Nachricht erreichte uns gestern und erneut trauert die Musikwelt um einen großartigen Musiker.

Am bekanntesten ist Gregg Allman durch die Mitbegründung der ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND geworden. Noch heute gilt diese als die erste Southern Rock-Band und feierte ihre größten Erfolge in den Siebzigern, die Live-Platte "At Fillmore East" gilt als Meilenstein. Die Band gründete er ursprünglich mit seinem Bruder Duane Allman, der bereits 1971 verstarb.

Gregg Allman arbeitete zuletzt an seiner neuen Platte "Southern Blood", diese soll nach wie vor noch dieses Jahr erscheinen. 

Ruhe in Frieden Gregg und danke für die großartige Musik, die du uns geschenkt hast.

Hier die offizielle Meldung der Webseite:

"It is with deep sadness we announce that Gregg Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia.

Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. 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.

Gregg’s long time manager and close friend, Michael Lehman said, “I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music. He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him.”

Gregg is survived by his wife, Shannon Allman, his children, Devon, Elijah Blue, Delilah Island Kurtom and Layla Brooklyn Allman; 3 grandchildren, his niece, Galadrielle Allman, lifelong friend Chank Middleton, and a large extended family. The family will release a statement soon, but for now ask for privacy during this very difficult time.

The family suggests that tributes to Gregg can be made to the Gregg Allman Scholarship Fund at The University of Georgia or the Allman/Lehman Endowed Scholarship at Syracuse University."
