An all-star group of musicians gathered together on Friday night to play a tribute concert in honor of Gregg Allman. Gregg Allman influences many artists with his unique southern rock sound that had strong blues influences.
Rolling Stone magazine added that the event, "All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman," took place in Atlanta. Many musicians joined current and former members of the Allman Brothers Band on stage.
The Associated Press reported that Vine Gill, Jackson Browne and the Zac Brown Band all took to the stage to honor Allman. Other artists that joined in the tribute included, Taj Mahal and These Days.
Allman was overwhelmed with the support and tribute. He spoke backstage about the honor. "I try not to think about it just directly. It's kind of like we all came to the gig together. It's pretty overwhelming but I've got the music to hang onto, to keep me on the ground. Otherwise they'd have to take me out of here on a string, like a balloon," said Allman.
