Gregg Allman Enters Hospice

Gregg Allman, singer, keyboardist and de facto leader of the Allman Brothers Band and a solo artist in his own right, has reportedly entered hospice. The result of a long history of illnesses, including the need for a liver transplant in 2010.

So far, only a few Twitter posts asking for prayers, and an unconfirmed Facebook post reports the
hospice placement. Allman's history of hard-partying and drug abuse clearly has taken its toll.

According to his website in March, Allman cancelled his entire 2017 tour schedule, after a string
of missed concerts dating back to last Summer. The announcement said he would be seeking treatment for “Serious health Issues,” at the Mayo Clinic.

No official statement from Allman or his management is available at this writing.
