Fellow classic rock legends, his ex-wife Cher, and others from the music world are mourning the loss of one of their own, with the news that Allman Brothers Band founding member Gregg Allman died today (May 27) at age 69.

A post on his Facebook page at 4:12 p.m. Eastern time formally announced the news. No cause of death was revealed.

We’re assembling tributes from many musicians who have collaborated with Allman or were simply impacted by his musical contributions.



Billy F Gibbons: “The sudden passing of Gregg Allman leaves us at a loss yet, at the same time, we stand alongside the millions thankful that Gregg was in our lives.  Gregg was, of course, a brilliant and intuitive player with a depth of soul reflected in his works in a truly moving manner.  Brother Gregg was generous with his talent, his spirit and, of course, his great voice.  We were fortunate enough to have been touched by him and those moments remain treasured encounters.  Some truly positive, uplifting experiences.  Gregg will be remembered as someone who made a big difference in the lives of many and whose sonic legacy continues that memorable course.”

Charlie Daniels: “Gregg Allman had a feeling for the blues very few ever have. Hard to believe that magnificent voice is stilled forever.”
