Hard to believe it's been five years since we lost Gregg Allman. The legendary bluesman died at his home in Richmond Hill, Georgia, on May 27, 2017, due to complications from liver cancer. He was 69 years old. His funeral took place at Snow's Memorial Chapel in Macon on June 3 and was attended by once-estranged bandmate Dickey Betts, his ex-wife Cher, and former President Jimmy Carter, among others. All the mourners dressed casually in jeans per Allman's request, and "hundreds of fans, many wearing Allman Brothers shirts and listening to the band's music, lined the route along the funeral procession."
In his memory, check out a performance of the classic "Melissa," above.
