69- year-old American musician, singer, and songwriter Gregg Allman is dead

69-year-old American musician, singer, and songwriter Gregg Allman is dead.

Gregory LeNoir Allman popularly known as Gregg Allman and best known for performing in the Allman Brothers Band is dead at the age of 69. He died on the 27th of May 2017 following a series of health problems, which includes hepatitis C and a 2010 liver transplant, Gregg Allman died at his home in Richmond Hill, Georgia, due to complications from liver cancer.

Gregg Allman was a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band. He was able to overcome family tragedy, drug addiction, and health problems to become a grizzled elder statesman for the blues music he loved. “My generation were heavy drug users,” Gregg Allman told the Daily Telegraph in 2011. “We didn’t know no different, we didn’t know no other way.”

Despite this setback, his substance abuse, stormy romantic history and other difficulties, Allman sounded at peace with himself in his 2012 memoir. “If I fell over dead right now,” he wrote, “I have led some kind of life.”

He will be buried at Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia, though a funeral date has not yet been set, Lehman said. Two other founding members of the Allman Brothers — guitarist Duane Allman and bassist Berry Oakley — are also buried at Rose Hill Cemetery.
