Gregory LeNoir Allman was born in Nashville, Tennessee on December 8, 1947. He and his brother Duane worked together in local bands while they were in high school. As the Allman Joys, they played clubs in the South. The brothers moved to Los Angeles in the late 1960s and formed a group called the Hour Glass, which released a pair of psychedelic-leaning pop albums for Liberty Records. Neither was successful. They eventually formed The Allman Brothers Band. The band's albums included Idlewild South and At Fillmore East. They disbanded for the last time in 2014. Allman also had a solo career. His albums included Laid Back, Low Country Blues, and Southern Blood. As a member of the Allman Brothers Band, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and received a Grammy Award for lifetime achievement in 2012. His autobiography, My Cross to Bear written with Alan Light, was published in 2012. He died from complications of liver cancer on May 27, 2017 at the age of 69. (Bowker Author Biography)
