Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame inductee Gregg Allman has died at the age of 69. The Allman Brothers founder was first diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 1999 and underwent liver transplant in 2010.  The Allman Brothers Band gave us classics including  "Midnight Rider," "Melissa","Whipping Post," and Allman’s solo, ‘I’m No Angel'.

According to a statement on Gregg Allman's official website, "he passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia…Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times."
