Cher Pays Tribute To Ex-Husband Gregg Allman

I wouldn't trade [my life] for nobody's, but I don't know if I'd do it again.

Church had crossed paths with Allman several times, even sharing the stage with him during at a 2015 Grammy event to perform "Midnight Rider" - although Church revealed that Allman had a surprise up his sleeve, changing the arrangement of the song at the last minute.

I was on the road when I received the news.

The death of legendary southern rock musician Gregg Allman has prompted this tribute from Hawkesbury Gazette editor Matt Lawrence.

"We lost another great that will now join the angel band", says Williams. I guess there's two ways of looking at it: One way is, "Let's try to let the music be part of the healing process", and the other way is, "What the hell am I doing here?" I am so very saddened to hear of Gregg's passing today.

Gregg Allman was born in Nashville in 1947, a year after brother Duane.

Expressing love for her former husband, the 71-year-old actor took to her Twitter handle and shared a series of posts. "Now I have started taking on some spiritualism".

He prayed "for our brothers, Egyptian Christian Copts who were killed because they did not want to renounce their faith". Friday's attack followed two suicide bombings of churches in April that killed 45 Copts.

In a 2012 interview with The Associated Press, Gregg Allman said Duane remained on his mind every day. I said why the hell do we have to go to Miama.

"During that time, Gregg was much like a big brother to me", Leavell wrote.

Drugs became so prevalent that the first time they entered their new private plane, they were greeted by the words Welcome Allman Brothers spelled out in cocaine on the bar, Gregg wrote in his memoir, My Cross to Bear. But I was still intimidated.

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.

Gregg was always shy and soft-spoken, never intended harm on anyone. "I don't understand why he can't see it". It permeates everything we do down here, and - as much as the food and literary traditions that dominate Southern culture - the music of the South informs and reflects our experiences. And he was that way from the time I first met him. "If somebody offered me a second round, I think I'd have to pass on it". His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans.

From writing to performing, Allman's work always seemed to reflect the energy, beauty and pain from which he drew his inspiration. Tragedy struck the family early; their father, Willis Allman, was shot and killed by a hitchhiker when Gregg was 2. "His contribution to music will long live on the hearts of so many.He will be missed.THANK YOU GREGG!" People try to sing it but they don't really get it like the real, sure-enough what it's supposed to be.
