AllmansTest™ Vol. 9 – In Memory of Brother Gregg

by Peter Wendel
We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

This one is in memory of Southern-rock pioneer Gregg Allman – a brilliant singer, songwriter and musician who laid claim to one of the greatest blues voices of all time. He will be dearly missed by legions of fans around the world, and forever remembered for his massive contribution to rock music.

Gregg died on May 27, 2017, at the age of 69 – 45 years after his older brother Duane was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident in Macon, GA. We can only hope the two Allmans are catching up over a cold beer and whatever else they can find. We assume Berry Oakley and Butch Trucks will be there, too.

Rest in peace, brother Gregg.
