About Gregg Allman
Born in the musical mecca of Nashville,
Tennessee, the town's vibrant music atmosphere would sink its hooks into Gregg from a young age, building a love for music
that would last throughout his life. Raised by a single mother after the tragic loss of his father, Gregg would bounce around
Tennessee, Virginia, and Florida, soaking in the rich heritage of southern music and integrating it into his masterful songwriting.
Gregg's earliest forays into music would be on the guitar, eventually branching out into being a vocalist and keyboard player
while still in school. After graduating, he and his brother Duane would embark on a musical journey that would span decades
and see them become two of the most recognizable names in rock music today.
The brothers would get their starts with
acts such as The Allman Joys and The Escorts, building up a following of Allman fans as they toured extensively around the
southern United States. They would eventually pick up a record deal with Liberty Records, and depart the south to try to make
a break in the western music capital of Los Angeles. They would become core members of newly formed band The House Glass,
which had a heavy blues influence and recorded two albums. The band members would be unhappy with a lack of creative control
over the group's direction, eventually disbanding, and paving the way for Gregg and Duane to form the iconic group The Allman
The Allman Brothers Band would be Gregg's breakout success, a pell mell of master musicians headed by the
sophisticated artistry of Gregg and Duane. The band would become a staple of the late 60s rock movement, but would dissolve
with the death of Duane Allman in 1971. Despite the loss of his brother, Gregg would continue his career in music with a breakout
solo career, cementing himself as one of the greatest rock stars of a generation with acts such as the Gregg Allman Band and
Gregg Allman & Friends. Since then, Gregg has released a steady stream of music while being a consistent force on the
tour scene, losing none of his old time appeal with consistent critical acclaim and accolades, including a 2011 trip to the
Gregg's debut solo work Laid Back would drop in 1973, just two years after
the loss of his brother. The album would be a southern rock mega hit, gaining near perfect scores from AllMusic and Rolling
Stone. The emotionally infused album is still considered one of Gregg's best works, and spawned a slew of hits that includes
"Midnight Rider", "Please Call Home", "All My Friends", and "Will the Circle Be Unbroken".
Showing that time has not
dulled his beautifully artistic mind, 2011's Low Country Blues would be Gregg's seventh studio album, release nearly forty
years after his solo debut. The album lit up charts across the board, with a #5 showing on the Billboard 200 and a swift swoop
to the top spot on the Top Blues Albums chart. Under the production tutelage of T-Bone Burnett, the album would receive a
four star rating from AllMusic and a Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album.
We almost had our
chance to experience Gregg's amazing life story in cinema from, with the production of a biopic based on his life titled Midnight
Rider. The production would be cancelled after an on set accident that took a crew member's life.
