Gregg Allman was born in Nashville but raised in Daytona Beach. With his guitar-playing brother Duane, organist and singer Gregg formed the Allman Brothers Band after stints in the groups the Allman Joys and Hour Glass. After Duane died in a motorcycle accident in 1971, Gregg continued the band until he disbanded it after a series of farewell shows in 2014. Since 1973, Allman has also released solo albums, including a few with the Gregg Allman Band. While he’s also known for his multiple marriages over the years (including one to Cher in the mid-’70s), his authentic bluesy growl has kept the focus on music. He continues to record and tour as a solo artist.
Born: Dec. 8, 1947
Selected Discography: 'At Fillmore East' (1971, with the Allman Brothers Band), 'Laid Back' (1973), 'I'm No Angel' (1987)
The Allman Brothers Band continued for decades after guitarist Duane Allman tragically passed away on Oct. 21, 1971, but looking back now, Gregg Allman believes the group never recovered from the loss of Duane's leadership.
