It is apparently true this time. I hope he didn't suffer too much.

What an amazing run he had! May he rest in peace.

Fillmore East was huge for me as a kid.

Yeah, confirmed on his own website this time.

I am a huge ABB fan (Dickey Betts is my favourite guitar player and both Duane and Derel are my favourite slide players) so this one really sucks.

For all his success in the music industry, he went through one tragedy after another. It took the man 50 years to get his life turned to somewhat of a normal existence. You have to feel for someone who has gone through that, even if a lot of it was brought on by themselves.

After his liver transplant, he was living on borrowed time. Another big loss.

Rest in Peace Gregg. And thanks for the wonderful music.

Live at the Fillmore, me too. Also one of my most viewed YouTube bands. RIP Greg. That leaves only Jaimoe and Dickey left from the original band.
