"My southern-rock heart is breaking".

Collectively between the Allman Brothers Band and solo work, Allman released 17 studio albums and 18 live albums, including the classic 1971 double LP At Fillmore East, which is considered one of the greatest live albums of all time.

Allman died peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia, according to a statement posted Saturday (local time) on his website. He blamed cancer for Allman's death.

"Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years", the statement added.

After rescheduling the dates, in March 2017, Allman's rep announced, "It has been determined that Gregg will not be touring in 2017", although no reason was provided for the canceled concerts.

They were a scruffy-looking, denim-clad assemblage and Gregg stood out with his long golden-blond hair. I was nine years old. So Gregg later switched to the organ.

Allman's music career record is mainly based on Allman Brothers Band that produced hits such as Ramblin' Man and Midnight Rider.

But when Duane Allman left behind a lucrative gig as a session musician in Muscle Shoals, Ala., he called his younger brother to join a band with two lead guitarists and two drummers. The album introduced fans to their fusion of blues, rock and jazz. Under his own name, his band's, and with other artists, Mr. Allman played on albums that sold millions of copies worldwide.

Both April and March figures were reduced: April's was cut to 174,000 from 211,000, while March was revised to 50,000 from 79,000. Plus, Lululemon stock swings higher; the Apple supplier headed to new highs; and the retail stock slumping to new lows.

Three months after its 1971 release, and just as the band was becoming nationally known, Duane Allman was killed in a motorcycle accident in Macon. Another motorcycle accident the following year claimed Oakley's life.

The band's main songwriter early on, Allman contributed expansive, emotionally fraught compositions like "Dreams" and "Whipping Post" to the Allman Brothers repertoire.

Undaunted this toughest of American bands survived to find commercial success away from the bars and halls with the splendid Eat A Peach and the groundbreaking Brothers and Sisters which includes the perennial favourite "Ramblin" Man'. So don't listen when you hear there will never be another album.

"I loved his playing, but I loved his singing more than anything", Fritts said.

In a 2012 interview with The Associated Press, he said Duane remained on his mind every day. Once in a while, he could even feel his presence. In 1999, Allman was diagnosed with hepatitis C after doctors had found two spots in the rocker's liver, and in recalling his diagnosis, he told the publication that doctors believe he may have gotten the disease from an infected tattoo needle.

Gregg Allman alienated bandmates when he testified against a band employee on trial for drug charges, and the Allman Brothers split up in 1976. During this time, Gregg met and married pop star, Cher. Personal wars and infighting with members of band have been reported, and Mr. Allman has been candid in the past about his extended substance abuse and his troubled relationships with some of his partners and some of his children. Butch's nephew Derek Trucks took ownership of lead guitar from 1998 onward and continued until the end.

Starting in 1990, more than 20 years after its founding, the reunited band began releasing new music and found a new audience.
