Gregg Allman died at 69-years-old. He was Cher's second husband and the iconic singer, songwriter, and co-founder of the Allman Brother's Band. The cause of death has not been released as of yet.

Gregg co-founded the Allman Brothers Band with his brother Duane Allman. Gregg was devastated when his brother Duane died in a motorcycle accident back in 1971. Through the years Greg toured with the Allman Brothers Band, often some of the original band members were with him and at other times Gregg would put together a band to go on the road with under the same name.

Gregg's iconic songs

Allman has a slew of songs that fans will always remember, like "Midnight Rider" and "Wasted Words." Gregg played the organ, he was the lead singer, and he wrote many of the iconic songs, including the ones above, along with "Whipping Post" and that haunting ballad "Melissa."

Cher, who married Gregg back in the 1970s did so on the heels of her divorce from Sonny Bono. It was an odd pairing from the get-go when Southern rocker met iconic pop star. She tweeted a brief, but heartfelt message today, which can be seen below.

Filed for divorce after 9-days of marriage

Once married, Cher filed for divorce for the first time just nine days after their whirlwind wedding.

This was rather quick even by Hollywood standards. The two would be on again and off again through the years, with their greatest time together being around the birth of their child Elijah Blue. Cher filed for divorce once again, but when she found out she was pregnant, the couple decided to give it another try. With the birth of their son, the two were actually happy for a while.

Too high at times

The Southern rocker and the pop singer were as different as their music was, as Cher once said that Gregg was sometimes so high, he couldn't understand what she was saying to him. Their wedding day was July 30, 1975, and they would live a rather rocky life being together on and off until Cher filed for divorce for the last time, just three years after they were married.

According to the Ultimate Classic Rock website, it was when Cher realized that Gregg's drug and alcohol problems were just too much for her to handle that she filed for divorce just nine days after their marriage. That would be a decision she would make again after they got back together.

On again, off again

That was a decision she would reverse a few times within the next few years as their relationship was on again and off again the entire time they were married. It was in January of 1978 that the two were finally divorced for the last time. Cher, who always spoke fondly of Gregg during interviews through the years, was at a loss for words today, which she described in her tweet.

Elijah Blue

Cher and Gregg remained bonded by their son, who grew up and went into the music business just like his parents. Cher once said that Gregg was the man that made her the happiest during her life. She said this during an interview after the two had divorced:

“Nobody ever made me feel as happy as Gregory did,” mused Cher. “God, he’s wonderful. I don’t understand why he can’t see it. He’s the kindest, most gentle, loving husband and father. But then, he forgets and everything goes to s—.”
