Gregg Allman, the Southern Rock legend took his final bow over Memorial Weekend and died of cancer on May 27, 2017.
The Midnight Rider and co-founder of the legendary rock band, The Allman Brothers, he gave us legendary hits like “Ramblin Man,” “Melissa,” and “Blue Sky.” Now, he’s ascended into rockstar heaven to join his brother Duane Allman who was also a prominent member of the band and died in a motorcycle accident in 1971.
Gregory LeNoir “Gregg” Allman was born on December 8, 1947, in Nashville Tennessee, under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius. A free-spirited soul, he embraced the rock and roll lifestyle with a vengeance. Sagittarians are truth-seekers, and the best way for them to do this is to hit the road, talk to others and get some answers. In Gregg Allman’s case, it was all about the music and touring. It was the air he breathed and the wine he drank.
His Astrology chart reveals he had Moon in Libra conjunct Neptune; he was a romantic man with a cool Southern charm, who had a profound need for peace and harmony in his life. Incredibly sensitive and intuitive, he would have been able to walk into any room and instantly feel the vibe, positive or negative. Jupiter rules this aspect compounded by his Sagittarius Sun, and it made him fall in and out of love quickly, explaining his multiple marriage and divorces.
His Venus in Capricorn and Mars in Virgo shows a man who was down to earth, and someone who needed a dedicated partner in music and love. On the positive side, he was a loyal and wonderful friend, on the dark side, he would have been quite possessive, and downright jealous.
His Sun in Sagittarius was conjunct both Mercury and Jupiter. Born under a lucky musical star, he was able to catapult this astrological aspect into rock stardom, and fueled by the love and support of his brother Duane. He once said, “The best advice I got had nothing to do with singing; it came from my brother, who always told me to stick to my guns and to believe in myself. I think Duane saw my talents and believed in me long before I ever did, and that meant the world to me.”
On Saturday, May 27th Gregg Allman was called home “he passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia,” a statement on the singer’s website read. “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.”
The Allman Brothers Band Museum in Macon became a mecca Sunday for fans mourning the death of co-founder Gregg Allman.
Gregg Allman’s funeral is scheduled this week, and he will be laid to rest next to his brother Duane Allman at Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia.
In his words, Gregg Allman wrote in his memoir, “When it’s all said and done, I’ll go to my grave, and my brother will greet me saying, ‘Nice work, little brother – you did all right,'” he wrote in the last lines of My Cross to Bear. “I must have said this a million times, but if I died today, I’ve had me a blast. I wouldn’t trade [my life] for nobody’s, but I don’t know if I’d do it again. If somebody offered me a second round, I think I’d have to pass on it.”
Another legend leaves us, RIP!
