“Gregg Allman is one of the co-founders of the popular 1970s rock group the Allman Brothers Band. He started out performing as a teenager and had several groups with his older brother Duane before the pair helped create the Allman Brothers Band in 1969. Known for their bluesy, improvisational style, the Allman Brothers Band hit it big in the early 1970s. In 1986, he made the charts with “I’m No Angel” as a solo artist.
The Allman Brothers Band got its start in 1969. Their blues-infused rock greatly benefited from this unusual instrument lineup, and the group quickly developed a following with its powerful, jam-filled live shows. They released their self-titled debut album that same year. Featuring such songs as “Dreams” and “Whipping Post,” The Allman Brothers Band earned strong reviews. Gregg Allman helped write several songs on the recording. He also worked on several tracks for the next record, 1971’s Idlewild South, including the now-classic “Midnight Rider.” “
