Gregg Allman, legend and founder of the rock band Allman Brothers has passed away at age 69.

Allman, along with his brother Duane, founded the roots and southern rock band that defined the genre. Allman was both a guitarist and skilled organist and brought gospel and soul songs to Rock-n-Roll. Allman’s combined instrumentals with his bluesy singing.

Gregg battled heroin addiction, hepatitis, and liver cancer. He was married five times, most notably to musician and noted leftist twitter loon Cher.
