Gregg Allman is an American musician, singer, songwriter and a founding member, with his brother Duane, of The Allman Brothers Band. In the early 1970s, the Allman Brothers Band enjoyed huge success: their live album At Fillmore East is widely regarded as one of the best live albums ever made, and a number of their signature songs were written by Gregg. While it was unusual at the time, the band was based in the Southeastern United States. "Southern rock," a term Gregg coined for their musical genre, is a fusion of rock, blues, and country.
After the death of Duane Allman in 1971, Gregg Allman started out on a solo career. His first album, Laid Back, was released in 1973 to a positive critical reception. It included a couple of reworked Allman Brothers songs, such as a horn-infused version of "Midnight Rider" that made it to #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, and originals like "Queen of Hearts", that the other ABB members felt did not quite fit the Allman Brothers sound. He also covered traditional gospel song "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" and former California roommate Jackson Browne's song "These Days."
His solo career has continued intermittently throughout the subsequent decades, sometimes touring when the Allman Brothers Band was off the road. Generally, these solo efforts – first with the Gregg Allman Band, and later with Gregg Allman & Friends – eschew lengthy guitar solos and cast Allman more in the mode of his favorite soul singers. The bands often include a horn section and are more groove-oriented, mixing original songs with reworked Allman Brothers songs and covers of blues, R&B, and soul songs.
Gregg Allman was inducted with the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. When he was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame on September 16, 2006 he was introduced by Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue and performed "Oncoming Traffic", "Melissa", and "Georgia on My Mind" solo and then ended with "Midnight Rider" backed by fellow inductees Bill Berry, Peter Buck, and Mike Mills from R.E.M. at the Georgia World Congress Center. His distinctive voice placed him in 70th place in the Rolling Stone list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time".
