Gregg Allman passed away on May 27, 2017, at the age of 69. This 2011 interview is one of many moments his voice and music were shared and savored on WFUV. Dennis Elsas will be playing excerpts of their conversation on Monday, May 29 in the 3 p.m. hour.
It's been fourteen years since Gregg Allman released a solo album, and on his new one, Low Country Blues, he pays homage to some of the great blues songs that influenced his style. Just after its released, Gregg talked with me about making the album and working with T Bone Burnett as a producer.
