I'm sorry to read that. Loved the Allman Brothers' take on southern- fried rock n roll decades ago, and as he supposedly was getting himself back together after much substance abuse, I have heard some of his newer solo work on satellite blues station.

I didn't even know Gregg Allman was still performing.

Some of these ancient rockers do not know when to quit.

I didn't even know Gregg Allman was still....alive.!

I thought...he passed awhile back.

Obviously I'm thinking of someone else. Oops.

they call it stormy Monday , but Tuesday's just the same,

Lord, and Wednesday's worse

and Thursday's  are all so sad

 

The Eagle flies on Friday

Saturday I go out to play

Sunday I go out to church

gonna get on my knees and pray

 

 

This was one of the best songs played in the 70's, and still is masterful. The guitar work and instrumentals are iconic.  IMO anyway.

ITA @SydneyH.   I was listening to the Allman Bros. and Gregg Allman's solo stuff all day the other day.  LOVED all of it.

 

I'm sorry to hear he is not well. I wish him a speedy recovery.

@RainCityWoman

 

I didn't even know he was still alive!    Now I'll wonder who I'm confusing him with! Hmm.

Such a shame some of the talented performers of yesteryear are not well. So much drugs,drinking and plain hard living. Some of them look so bad you wonder if they have to prop them up to perform. Sad. Look at Ozzy Osbourne I don't think he even knows what day it is let alone have another woman.  I hope Gregg recovers soon.
