RIP Greg Allman

Greg-Allmann_16636-EditThere was sad news for all lovers of great American rock music this week with the death of Gregg Allman.  The last time a German audience got to see Allman was actually at the now defunct Museumsplatz here in Bonn.  In the previous year he had undergone a liver transplant and hopes were high of a full recovery.  Bonn was set to be just the first date of Allman’s 2011 German tour, but sadly turned out to be the last after a lung infection meant the cancellation of remaining gigs in Munich, Nürnberg, Tuttlingen and a festival in Burg-Herzberg.

For non-german speaking readers  HERE is my review of that classic evening – also featuring Krissy Matthews, and co-starring Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.  For german speakers and Allman fans, I recommend an excellent article from Spiegel Online HERE

Give your favourite Allman Brothers disc a spin in his honour…
