Today would have been The Allman Brothers Band co-found Gregg Allman’s 70th birthday. The renowned musician was 69-years-old when he passed away on May 27 following a series of medical complications. The response to Allman’s death was met with sadness and admiration for the man behind some of the classic songs in rock ‘n’ roll history.
Many of those songs were performed by fellow musicians in the days and weeks that followed Gregg’s passing. In celebration of his life and music, here’s a look back at several of those special tributes paid to the rock legend.
Below are video recordings of tributes played in honor of Gregg Allman performed by Phil Lesh & Friends, Trey Anastasio Band, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, The String Cheese Incident and Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit.
