Two Local Writers Share Gregg Allman Memories

We lost Gregg Allman on Saturday at the age of 69. The word is, he died due to complications of liver cancer. He will be buried at Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia, where his brother Duane and bandmate Berry Oakley, Jr. are laid to rest side-by-side.

Two guys who sat across from Gregg Allman over the years, one as a concert reviewer and the other a band biographer, have shared their memories and experiences talking with the late Allman Brothers Band frontman. There's some great info about the singer and the man!

Alan Paul is a Pittsburgh guy who went on to write for 'Guitar World' magazine and penned the ABB biography "One Way Out". He had interviewed Allman dozens of times over 25 years.


And Scott Mervis, the music beat writer for the Post-Gazette had some facts about the various shows the Allman Brothers played in Pittsburgh, and his talks with Gregg. He also shares an amazing story about local promoter Rich Engler (of DiCesare Engler) jamming with Gregg's brother Duane Allman in Daytona Beach, Florida.
