Passed today aged 69. He's had respiratory and heart issues the last few years as well as a liver transplant in 2010 but there's been no mention of cause of death. A true legend of rock. Unfortunately, I got into the Allman Brothers Band late in life, but once I finally did, as a musician and lover of music, I was transformed. To say they have been an influence on me is a huge understatement. Along with Butch Trucks, that's two original member that have died this year. 

RIP Brother Gregg. You're finally reunited with Duane and Berry.

I had a feeling that when the tour was cancelled earlier in the year, that it was a bad sign. Another great one has left us...

He'd been canceling tours for 2-3 years now. That why I figured it was pulmonary or cardiac in nature. This liver cancer revelation came out of nowhere
