    Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman is both a founding member of one of the biggest and most important American bands of all time, the still-active and thriving Allman Brothers Band, and a critically acclaimed solo talent. A natural artist gifted with a beautifully soulful and distinctive voice as well as brilliant keyboard and guitar expertise, Allman is a legendary performer who, more than 30 years down the road, still loves making music as much as ever. 

    At the start of his enduring career, Gregg Allman and his brother Duane put together a number of different groups, including their very first professional ones, The Allman Joys and The Hour Glass. Whatever the configuration, Gregg's powerful lead vocals, emerging songwriting, and keyboard prowess perfectly complemented Duane's now-legendary guitar virtuosity. In 1969, their brotherhood made history with the formation of the massively influential act that both kick-started the entire genre of Southern Rock and defined an era of '70s rock and roll with its freewheeling yet musically masterful sound, The Allman Brothers Band. 

    The band's unique amalgam of rock, blues, country, and even jazz flourishes expanded the boundaries of rock music and their signature, extended onstage jamming set new standards for live concert performance. In addition to his singing and playing, Gregg wrote many of their most memorable signature hits, including the classics "Whipping Post" and "Dreams" from their debut album, "Midnight Rider" and "Please Call Home" from their second LP Idlewild South, and "Melissa" from 1972's Eat A Peach
