    And another one... It is distressing to hear this. I've been listening to him most of my adult life, even tho not a huge fan. He had Hep C a while back, and a liver transplant fairly recently. That disease is a sleeping giant. I found this out myself a few years ago too. I was luckier as there are some good new drugs now, and I would suggest anyone who has not yet done it, get a hep test done asap, especially if you are of a certain age, and survived the 60s, 70s & 80s...
    It's all Here. Now.

    If there's a heaven, there's one hell of band being formed right now. The original Allman Bros. band were a force to be reckoned with.

    I was just in my car and heard the DJ say "remembering Gregg Allman" as they started up Whipping Post. Noooooo!

    I never much cared for the Allmand Brothers as a kid but I came to really like them starting about 20 years ago when I picked up a used live CD.

    RIP

    Ahh, shit. I knew as soon as I saw your heading. He'd been in poor health lately.

    Goddammit.

    Thank you for the many, many years of great music, Mr. Allman.

    I doubt it. Gregg said himself "I'm No Angel."

    Love his music. These last two years has been seen too much tragedy in the music industry.

    One of my favs. R.I.P. Gregg.

    Fillmore East is good, but I picked up a live album called "SUNY at Stonybrook 9/19/71" and it kicks major butt. The original lineup. It's got 'Blue Sky' on it, my favorite ABB song.

    It also has a really good article about the concert and there's a picture of the contract inside as well...they were paid $6,000.

    The CPI inflation calculator says it was "$35,959.41"...which is still a heck of a lot of money for a gig.

    Sad to hear. I can get down with some early Allman Bros.

    The Allman Brothers were the inspiration and the somewhat biographical story behind the film Almost Famous. Cameron Crowe was 16 years old when he interviewed Gregg Allman for Rolling Stone.

    I found this yesterday: The Fillmore Concerts - The Allman Brothers Band | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic

    A good idea that worked out even better, with one small caveat. The Fillmore Concerts is made up of performances from the two Fillmore shows that originally comprised Live at the Fillmore East and the concert portions of Eat a Peach, plus one track ("One Way Out") from a Fillmore show from a couple of months later. The 16-track masters from each show are transferred to digital and remixed by original producer Tom Dowd.

    The sound is sterling and the two-hour-plus running time makes this a dream for fans of the band, as well as an improvement on the original releases of this material. It is also a slightly less honest release, where "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is concerned -- Dowd edited the version here together from two different performances, first and second shows, the dividing line being where Duane Allman's solo comes in. Not that this is the only concert album where this kind of editing has been done, but the original Live at the Fillmore contained a single take of the song, and some purists may prefer that.

    Otherwise, this set runs circles around more than 99 percent of the guitar albums ever released, with breathtaking sound (which, unlike the similarly conceived but less effective Derek & the Dominos Live at the Fillmore, loses none of its bite), and most fans might as well start here.


    Pretty cool find.

    Yes, and unfortunately, he died because of his liver cancer. And you are right, HCV and liver disease are sleeping giants.

    He was too important in the music industry to let this thread slide into oblivion.

    One of my favorites, RIP Gregg.

    I saw ABB perform about 10 years ago at Red Rocks in Denver - it was an amazing concert. I mountain biked all day in Breckenridge and then reluctantly drove into Denver to see the concert because I was tired and didn't feel like dealing with the drive and traffic. So happy I went. Saw them again about 7 years ago in Dallas with Widespread Panic and that was probably a top 10 concert of all time for me. Greg had a very distinctive voice and really that southern jam sound is still one of my favorites to hear live. RIP Greg

    I saw some great concerts at SUNY at Stony Brook. But I was still in HS when that one happened. I got my BSME there. I saw Hot Tuna and John Mclaughlin & the Mahavishnu Orchestra there too.
