Gregory Lenoir Allman - Dec 8, 1947 - May 27, 2017
Posted by: Rowland on Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 03:59 PM
It is with deep sadness that 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.

I have lost my musical hero. I had a bad feeling a while back Gregg wouldn’t be with us much longer.
Deeply saddened in shock still. The first time I heard Brothers & Sisters I knew this was as good as it gets.
I’m feeling numb this morning.
I’ll be playing Allman Brothers all week in tribute to the great man.

Gregg would put so much energy and passion into his music, it was beyond the call of duty. Thank you Gregg Allman for your incredible passion and great songs.

I am devastated. Gregg's music shaped me and soothed me. I first heard the Allman Brothers in 1972 when I was 13. I have been listening to Gregg ever since. His music got me through a lot of good times and bad. I have never stopped listening. We have lost a gifted musician. A true traveling bard and minstrel. When I listened to his music, I think I could hear his heart. My love, respect and prayers to his family and friends. Gregg, we miss you already. xoxo

There are no words to describe my sadness as I say goodbye to this musical giant. The Brothers and their music have been a part of my life for nearly a half century now. Their music uplifted me, gave me musical perspective and challenged my ears endlessly. R.I.P. Gregg you will be sorely missed.

The Allman Brothers Band changed my life and for 46 years has been heard daily in my home, and will continue to be forever.

Rest in Peace, Brother Gregg. You'll be in our hearts forever.

This hits like a ton of bricks. Gregg was a true legend that inspired so many musicians and people. Thanks to my Dad, My brother and I grew up with Allman Brothers music, getting us thru thick and thin. We spent many years in Dads backroom playin their music with our backroom band. Thank you Gregg for giving us so many years of intense southern rock. You and Duane are finally together again.

Such a sad day. Grew up listening to Gregg and the Brothers and they have been with me down the years. We have lost one of the very best. Can't believe it.
Thank you Gregg for all the great music and memories.

RIP Midnight Rider, your music will always live on and your legend will not be forgotten. You were the voice of Rock & Roll and your soulful sounds will continue to echo in our ears. You join Duane, Berry & Butch and I am sure the jam session will be cranking soon. Thanks for all the memories and outstanding shows, Rest Easy.

Duane and Gregg and the Brothers showed us a way to live a life devoted to the truth and beauty of the Blues. Your music was an inspiration to a lot of good people and we had one hell of a ride.
See you on the other side, Brother Gregory.

I had purchased tickets for my daughter and I to see Gregg in June at the the Grand Old Opera house in Macon. I wanted my daughter who is 17 to experience the voice and the music that has meant so much to me throughout my life. When the concerts were cancelled I still hoped we would have that opportunity in the future. My heart has been so sad at Greggs passing. As you grow older you know that those times are in the past but when those you admired and loved pass on it seems to put a big period, the end on it. I recently read Greggs book "My Cross to Bear and was glad to read that when he not only experienced a life transformation he also had a spiritual transformation. So it's not the end but the beginning of his journey on a road that does go on forever.
I plan to visit Macon in August to pay my respects. Does anyone know if that will be a problem as long as respect is shown for the guidelines the family has established?
Rest in peace Gregg

The road goes on forever and the members of the band who have crossed over to the other side are now in an eternal band. There is a chapter in your Bible called Habbakuk, and in there it says "for the Director of my stringed instruments",there's a story attached to that, but suffice it to say I AM SURE that's what Duane does up there. He laid the foundation for the others who would follow. Gregg's job here seemed to be to help everyone else get thru things in their lives, while finding his own path. He found success, dignity and love, I think God is well pleased with him, even more than we are.
