Fans Encouraged to Line the Streets for Gregg Allman Funeral Procession

Gregg Allman passed away on Saturday (May 27) from complications from liver cancer.

The Allman Brothers Band influenced the music industry across the country, but plenty of local fans credit the group with putting Macon on the map.

Allman will be buried at Macon's Rose Hill Cemetery, next to his brother Duane and late Allman Brothers band mate Berry Oakley.

He says they recorded at Macon's Capricorn studios with The Allman Brothers.

In addition to his World Cup with Spain, he played a vital role during their title runs at the Euros in 2008 and 2012. In his first season he won the Champions League in the sensational comeback victory over AC Milan in the 2005 final.

"He was more than just a producer for me, he was like a father figure nearly, " Allman said. While he was "very comfortable with Duane having that role from the very beginning", Haynes notes that Allman had to take more control after his brothers death, but still "always liked to see things just happen" with the music.

Duane Allman, founder and lead singer of the nationally prominent Macon-based Allman Brothers Band, was killed last night when his motorcycle spun out of control.

In recognition of his career, Allman was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 1995. I didn't believe it for a long time until somebody shoved it [Zappa's recording] right in front of my face and said here play it yourself. I loved him all of my life with all of my heart. "It became clear that Gregg wasn't necessarily going to be able to promote it, even if he was here, and that was something we were prepared for". But instead of treating it like a style, the band cultivated it like an atmosphere - with Allman, who died Saturday at 69, positioning himself as the ballast.

Allman had suffered the effects of hepatitis C for many years, leading to a liver transplant in 2010.

"He finally got his life together, but I guess the years of abuse took its toll". Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest times'.

Allman had lovely ideas about creating space within his music.

Still, Devon Allman says that finding his own way into music helped him create a unique sound - far away from the expectations that typically surround the offspring of rock royalty.

In 1975, Cher and Allman married three days after she divorced her husband and singing partner, Sonny Bono. Last year, he spoke out against North Carolina's transphobic "bathroom bill, " and when asked about the confederate flag in 2015, he told Radio.com, "If people are gonna look at that flag and think of it as representing slavery, then I say burn every one of them".

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