Classic rocker Gregg Allman died today at age 69. According to his publicist he “passed away peacefully” at his home in Savannah, Ga.
Allman’s health had been precarious since last year, when he was forced to cancel some tour dates. On Aug. 5, he announced, that he was “under his doctor’s care at the Mayo Clinic” due to “serious health issues.” Later that year, he canceled more dates due to a throat injury. Then in March of this year, he canceled the rest of his performances.
Remember the Allman brothers with this full broadcast of their 1995 “Austin City Limits” performance.
Miles Zuniga of Austin’s Fastball remembered the late Allman on Saturday in a Facebook post about how the music legend might actually have played a small role in Fastball becoming a band.
