Gregg Allman tribute video released on anniversary of his death


BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene

The music of Gregg Allman lives on.

The Southern rock legend died one year ago on May 27 , and to commemorate the anniversary of his passing at age 69, his team compiled a three-minute video that showcases Allman the way he'd want to be remembered - always making music.

The clip, set to his 1973 song "Queen of Hearts" from his "Laid Back" solo album, features Allman - both vintage and recent - working in the studio and playing live. There's even a snippet from his Fox Theatre tribute concert  in 2014.

Rock on, brother Gregg.
