Gregg Allman died – Cher says goodbye to the father of his son Elijah Blue


The singer was married to Cher for four years and had a son together, Elijah Blue

Gregg Allman, singer of ‘The Allman Brothers Band’, and former husband of Cher passed away Saturday, May 27 at the age of 69. The Southern Rock pioneer died peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia, according to a statement on his website.

Gregory Lenoir Allman was born December 8, 1947, in Nashville, Tennessee. Best known for being the founder of the Allman Brothers band. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 with the Allman Brothers band. And he personally received a lifetime achievement award from the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2006

The band of the Allman Brothers is a seminal band of the denominated southern rock native of Macon, Georgia, EE. Described by the Rock Hall of Fame as “the leading architects of southern rock.” The group was formed in 1969 and two years later George Kimball described them in Rolling Stone magazine as the best rock and roll band that had been created in the United States in the last five years.

Allman was married six times, including a four-year marriage to Cher that ended in 1979. He is survived by his wife, Shannon, and four children, including Elijah Blue, his son Cher and three grandchildren.

The singer fought drug addiction for years and was diagnosed with hepatitis C in 2007, which he attributed to a contaminated tattoo needle. He underwent a liver transplant in 2010.

Cher used Twitter to say goodbye to Gregg Allman, her ex-husband, who died at age 69. She wrote: “IVE TRIED… WORDS ARE IMPOSSIBLE GUI GUI. FOREVER, CHOOCH

The story of Allman and the singer goes back to 1975 when the couple met. Over the next few months after their first meeting, they were married, divorced, had a child and reunited before finally ending their relationship in 1977, Rolling Stone reported. “I tried … Words are impossible,” Cher wrote on her Twitter after the news spread.
