When rumors were flying a few weeks ago that Gregg Allman had passed, I was talking with Jeff Kent, PD of Classic Rock sister station "The Fox" and Morgen (Midday's on WRFX) that it probably would not be long before the rumor was real, as we knew that Gregg was not in good health. As radio people do, we started reminiscing about his career with The Allman Brothers and his own solo career and the amount of great music they created and the bands and musicians they spawned and it is "staggering". Below are many of his songs with and without the Allman Brothers in order of my favorites. I was fortunate to see The Allman Brothers several times in my life and also Gregg in his solo career with The Gregg Allman Band. This is when music loses it's label, when we lose an ICON and the labels fall away. It's not about whether you love Classic Rock or Alt rock, or pop or country. It's about recognizing the impact a musician has made and being able to appreciate it for what it is. RIP Gregg Allman, you can now join brother Duane and all those other great musicians that have gone before and if you believe the song by The Righteous Brothers...."If There's a Rock N' Roll Heaven, You know they got a hell of a band"!
