Reports surfaced on April 24 that Allman was in hospice, although Allman substantiated a denial in a Facebook post. To Gregg's credit, their sound afterward was no less powerful, if more poignant, and to the delight of their worldwide fan base, they forged on for another 40+ years, until disbanding in 2014.
"I started playing and it just knocked me out", said Allman in the 2005 documentary American Revolutions: Southern Rock.
Son Devon Allman became a guitarist, keyboardist, and songwriter, founding the band Honeytribe and enjoying a successful solo career.

Allman was married six times in his life, most memorably to Cher, from 1975 to 1979.
Although Leavell parted ways with Allman Brothers Band before the release of the 1976 live LP Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollar Gas, he remained part of the band's orbit, performing alongside Dickey Betts and Gov't Mule. The two had a son, musician Elijah Blue Allman, and were frequent celebrity tabloid fodder before divorcing in 1978. And Gregg Allman was self-admittedly no angel. After decades of drug and alcohol abuse, he finally got clean in 1995 after being embarrassed by his drunken acceptance speech at the Allman Brothers' Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. He contracted Hepatitis C in 2007, blaming it on the use of a dirty needle while getting a tattoo.
CONTRERAS: Gregg was just one year younger than Duane, and they formed a close-knit bond after their father was murdered when Gregg was just 2 years old. Blessings and peace to all the Allman family.
