Gregg Allman, Soulful Trailblazer of Southern Rock, Dies at 69

Gregg Allman, the soulful singer-songwriter and rock n' blues pioneer who founded The Allman Brothers Band with his late brother, Duane, and composed such classics as "Midnight Rider," "Melissa" and the epic concert jam "Whipping Post," has died at age 69, Billboard has learned. He was diagnosed with hepatitis C in 1999 and underwent a liver transplant in 2010.

With his long blond hair, cool facade and songs that chronicled restless, wounded lives, Allman came to personify the sexy, hard-living rock outlaw in a life marked by musical triumph and calamitous loss.

Billboard will have more information about the specifics behind Allman's death as the story develops.

When I saw this, I immediately thought of Cher.  :(

I think they were really good friends.

It was not to long ago I seen Greg Allman in an interview about his life with Dan Rather. He seemed to be a cool guy. How sad.

Gregg Allman was such an amazing singer-songwriter.  He will leave a definite hole in music now that he's gone.  Those of us that loved his music will surely mourn his passing.
