Musician Greg Allman dies at 69

Greg Allman, master musician and member of the Allman Brother’s Band, has died Saturday, at 69, following a period of ill health.

The Allman Brother’s, known for such classics as “Midnight Rider,” “Tied to the Whipping Post,” and the lively “Ramblin’ Man,” pioneered the Southern Rock Style, which combed multiple lead guitars, and merged blues and jazz traditions, along with great musicality and passion, to the delight of fans for decades.

Here’s a brief discussion recapping his career, challenges and contributions to music, and a tribute video compilation of his work:
