Happy Birthday Gregg | Allman Brothers On Saturday Night Live

By Scott Bernstein Dec 8, 2014 2:50 pm PST

Today marks The Allman Brothers Band co-founder Gregg Allman’s 67th birthday. We’re excited to see what Gregg has in store for his career following October’s end of The Allman Brothers Band. It appears he’ll focus on highly-talented solo band with the recent announcement of an extensive tour.

To celebrate Brother Gregg’s birthday we wanted to re-share footage that surfaced last year thanks to Rev. Bob of the Allman Brothers Band performing on a 1982 episode of Saturday Night Live. In this clip, Gregg and the ’82 version of the band deliver a soulful rendition of “Midnight Rider” followed by a sadly shortened version of “Leavin’.” According to a chronology on the Allman’s website this was the band’s last performance until 1986.
