Gregg Allman Funeral Set For Saturday

Posted June 01, 2017

You didn't need a video with Allman Brothers; That movie was going on when he opened his mouth and started singing.I think as a contributor to the Southern rock for sure because they are in my opinion, they are the originator.

The iconic rocker's funeral ceremony is scheduled for 1 p.m.at Snow's Memorial Chapel, The Macon Telegraph reports.

Allman will be buried at Macon's Rose Hill Cemetery, next to his brother Duane and late Allman Brothers band mate Berry Oakley.

Allman's manager, Michael Lehman, told NPR News Allman had suffered a recurrruence of liver cancer five years ago, and died from complications of the disease. After years of musical anonymity, a self-titled debut album in 1969 put the Allman Brothers on the radar, and their blockbuster 1971 recording of live performances from the Fillmore East in NY remains a rock landmark.

"He and [producer] Don Was sent it to me to sing on, and I did", Browne said.

The Arsenal manager will discover on Tuesday if he still has the full support of his board at the club he has served for 21 years. He told reporters: "You can always say it was a first start of the season and first of being captain".

The Allman Brothers Band might've been peculiar in structure - longtime drummer Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson says Duane cribbed the two drummers bit from James Brown - but it was a revolution in style and substance.

Allman passed away on May 27 and his brother Duane died in a motorcycle accident in 1971. After Willie Nelson expressed concern about his health during the band's 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Allman got sober, and he and the band hit the road once again.

Long before Elijah began performing under the names Academia and Phillips Exeter Blue I, he was already well versed in the world of music. I guess in the late '90s, we were playing a date together and I got to meet him finally and just really liked him as a person.

Gregg Allman's vocals, by turns squalling and brooding, took their cue from the anguished emoting of down-home blues singers like Elmore James, as well as from more sophisticated ones like Bobby Bland.

Allman attributed the sobriety he achieved in the 1990s to a newfound faith in God, but decades of abuse necessitated a liver transplant in 2010. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.

The legendary founder of The Allman Brothers Band died at age 69 on Saturday at his home in Savannah, Georgia. Gregg spent about 45 minutes there taking pictures and reminiscing, funny stories - "I can't believe how small Duane's and my bedroom was, ' 'This is the tree where Duane tied me up once, ' funny, funny stories".

In his 2012 memoir, "My Cross to Bear", Allman described how his older brother was a central figure in his life in the years after their father was murdered by a man he met in a bar.

His ex-wife, Cher, took to Twitter to mourn the musician's death.

He famously married singer and actress Cher in 1975, three days after she divorced Sonny Bono.

Though she wasn't connected by blood Mama Louise had her own way of being a part of the Allman Brothers Band shows.
