Gregg Allman was born on 8th December, 1947. Gregg and his brother Duane fell in love with music at a very early age. The two of them went to performances headlined by the likes of Patti Labelle, Otis Redding, B.B. King and Jackie Wilson. Gregg started to work on his vocals and learned the traits of playing a keyboard whereas his brother became a wonderful guitar player. The brothers were inseparable and by the time 1960’s came around they had began to play as members of different groups. One of those bands was their own named The Allman Joys. They decided to move to Los Angeles and that move led them to be signed by Liberty Records. The label gave them a new name, The Hour Glass. The move didn’t work out according to the script and they once again moved, this time to Florida.
The re-location to Florida changed their musical careers forever, for that is when they formed The Allman Brothers Band. With Gregg Allman taking over the vocals the band started to make waves immediately with the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. Another critical favorite Idlewild South came out in 1970 but it was their 1971 live album At Fillmore East that really translated all that critical acclaims over to the commercial front. The album brought the group into mainstream music and they haven’t looked back since. At Fillmore East earned platinum status and is regarded by many to be one of the greatest albums in history.
Tragedy however stuck a few months later when Duane passed away in an accident. Next year saw Berry Oakley, the group’s bassist pass away as well in a motorcycle accident. The band cherished the legacy of the two young departed members in the best way possible by releasing Brothers and Sisters later in 1972. The album turned out to be an even bigger hit that went on to stay at the pinnacle of charts in the U.S. for five straight weeks. The song “Ramblin Man” went to the second spot in the U.S. to turn the album into one of the biggest hits on The Allman Brothers Band portfolio. The band’s popularity reached new heights when they were among one of the three groups to headline the Summer Jam at Watkins Glen, a music festival that was attended by an estimated crowd of an incredible six hundred thousand fans. Unfortunately for their fans the band dissolved a few years later. After one re-commencement and a few performances together The Allman Brothers got revived once again in 1989. Gregg Allman took over the vocal duties once again and they went on a road trip to commemorate their twentieth anniversary. Hits like “Seven Turns”, “Shades of Two Worlds” and “Where it All Begins” came in 1990, 1991 and 1994 respectively to announce their comeback in style. They reached another career high by winning a Grammy for their efforts on the instrumental song “Jessica” in 1996. Epics like “Peaking at the Beacon” and “One Way Out” made the band regain their throne at the top of the perch.
Gregg Allman has had a successful solo career as well that he focuses on when he isn’t with The Allman Brothers. His first album was titled Laid Back and it came out in the year 1973 when he decided to go alone after the death of his brother. It was a rousing critical success and he followed that up with I’m No Angel and Low Country Blues that were both received very well among the masses.
