Gregg Allman

Gregg Allman's most visible contribution to rock music is as lead singer, organist, and songwriter with the Allman Brothers Band, founded by his brother Duane (d. 1971) in 1969. He has never threatened to eclipse the band that carries his family name, but he has found occasional success and popularity with his solo work, which is distinctly different, more soulful and less focused on high-wattage virtuosity.

Allman's instrument is the organ, and he is most effective, when he is in top form, as a singer. His first instrument, ironically enough, was the guitar, and he took it up before his older brother Duane did. But Duane learned it better and quickly eclipsed Gregg. Where Gregg did excel was on the organ and as a singer (a role Duane was never comfortable with), which proved important but not at the center of a group that became famous for its 40-minute instrumental jams and three-hour sets. Through their early efforts, in bands like the Allman Joys and the Hour Glass, they shared the spotlight, with Duane taking the lengthy solos and Gregg fronting the band and offering Booker T. Jones-type keyboard playing. Liberty Records signed the Hour Glass and tried making Gregg into the focus of their efforts during the late '60s, but it never quite worked.

When the Allman Brothers were organized, the flashy (and vital) instrumental moments belonged to his brother and Dickey Betts and, later still, Warren Haynes. Gregg's songs, however, including "Whipping Post" and "Midnight Rider," were among the group's notable originals during its classic period, 1969-1972. Beginning with Brothers and Sisters, Betts' songwriting and singing assumed increasing prominence.

It was during the period that Brothers and Sisters was burning up the charts that Gregg Allman emerged as a solo artist with his first album, the critically well-received hit Laid Back, which put the softer, more serious, soul- and gospel-tinged side of his work in sharper focus. A tour followed, which yielded a live album that was also a success. This first period of solo popularity was interrupted by a combination of professional and personal conflicts; the Allman Brothers Band toured extensively and struggled to come up with a follow-up to Brothers and Sisters, and Gregg Allman began a relationship with Cher, the ex-wife and singing partner of Sonny Bono, which resulted in a tumultuous series of marriages and divorces for the two. These activities were played out amid Allman's well-publicized drug problems, which culminated with his testifying against a band employee in a federal drug case, which, in turn, led to the temporary but extended dissolution of the Allman Brothers Band.

Ironically, it was during this period, in 1977, that he delivered Playin' Up a Storm, a pop-soul effort that proved to be his most accomplished and successful album. Alas, this was to be the peak of his career away from the band. His next two albums, I'm No Angel and Just Before the Bullets Fly, released at the end of the 1980s, were quickly eclipsed by the re-formed and reinvigorated Allman Brothers Band's success on-stage and on record. His 1997 release Searchin' for Simplicity and the double-CD anthology One More Try had none of the urgency or success of the band's activities. In 2009, Australia's Raven Records imprint issued a 19-track, single-disc retrospective, entitled The Solo Years 1973-1997: One More Silver Dollar, that covered the whole of Allman's solo career to that date from his years at Capricorn and Columbia. In 2011, some 14 years after his last solo album, Allman released the T-Bone Burnett-produced Low Country Blues on Rounder Records. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

Why is the Laid Back album cover plastered with a Japanese sticker? There are plenty of non-stickere d images of the album cover around.
I think some of Gregg's Solo Work eclipses some of the Alman Brothers work in that the songs speak to the heart about real life. He's my favorite Blues/Southe r n Rock Musician.
great song

I recently visited Duane Allman and Barry Oakley's graves. It was very sad. I sang Midnight Rider to them both before leaving.

They got right a long time ago. ABB- the best damn band in the land!!
krudd, I had the pleasure of seeing Gregg perform a few months ago in Las Vegas. Fear not my blues brother, he still has it. His voice sounds amazing, and his band was excellent. If you get the chance, go see him, it's worth it. But you already knew that.

This bio sucks...I'm sorry, but the Allman Brothers would not have been the Allman Brothers without Gregg's ability to sing the blues. He's been doing that since he was a kid. We all know he went down some dark roads, but it looks like he made it through, and I would go see him tonight if he were playing. Duane was a guitar prodigy, but the bluesy vocals are pure Gregg.
I got one more silver dollar & I'm not gonna let them catch me not gonna let them catch the midnight rider!!! Love this version & Marshall Tucker Band!! Awesome song!! ❌❤❌❤
I'm with sc sweet t - Rovi, usually love your bios, so I'm guessing it's Eder who contributed the poor writing and lame caricature of Greg above. Greg's voice and organ was as much at the heart of the A Bros sound as his brother's guitar. And he was singing with a pure blues voice as a teen - if that's not talent, don't know what is.
carole@ queen of hearts bring it on home sure like to meet you cus you are right on the money about gregg singin the blues dom your self a favor and listen to when a man lovea a woman by gregg allman micheal boltons version sucks
Saw Gregg in San Diego last night... He and his band were FANTASTIC! So much talent in one band!

I was in Aliota's Bar in Buffalo NY the 1st nite the Allman Bros played - thought they were awesome. The next nite- their road Mgr stabbed Mr. Alliota to death, and they left town- it was a sorry nite for all!
@ hearse101 - you never did anything that you still regret? Maybe when you were somewhre between 20-28 years old? If not, you got no point of reference.
I'm happy that he is doing well. A great artist! With all the highs and lows, he hung in and u have to give him credit. But I would bet the farm that he has accepted Jesus as his LORD and SAVIOR. They use to come here to New Orleans, to the warehouse every 4th of July and New Years Eve. It was like 1970 till at least 1973. And I was 15 and got the pleasure of seeing Duanne! He was so gifted. When the rest of the band would take a break, he would stay on stage and keep jamming. We had about 10 fr
\people that live in glass houses should not throw stones
Gregg ol' boy, you're a very talented guy and have led a remarkably exciting life (+/-), but I still think you're road scum for your turning on a brother back then.
danc_97007
sorry i only read your pitiful post and didn't realize u were referring to the bio.
danc_97007
hey sc_sweet_t who the F;'U.C/K r u to judge???

I loved sitting on stage, on top of the speakers in Orlando, Florida. It was the late 60's and early 70's! Can't do that anymore! You were such a part of our life and I still love your music as I did back then!

Met him in a bowling alley bar in Lansing, Mi 1988 I think. Very down to earth, very drunk as was I. Played pool for s**t .
