I'm no angel is a great open road, sun shining, windows down highway song. (Apologies to Blackfoot.)

He had health issues.

Between alcohol, IV drug use and the liver disease that goes with them he got a new liver and still didn't see 70.

Helluva a talent with a number of demons.

Saw him at free concert at Munn Field in 1988 - he was the headliner. Steppenwolf was on the bill and a bunch of local bands notably The Way-Outs

What a story this is....somewhat similar to the KISS in Cadillac story.

Sean Kirst: How Gregg Allman and Cher stunned Canisius High 'assembly' in 1976


He brought it with him as he drove along a sycamore-lined private lane in Georgia that led to Allman's house. He kept it in a backpack while Allman did a long and gracious interview. As the interview was winding down, Brutus pulled out the yearbook.

Allman's response was immediate and emotional.

"I thought he was going to burst into tears," Brutus said.

Allman studied the images, and he remembered how the performance "was really important" in his life, a little touch of human fabric after a period of trauma. The idea that he was featured in the yearbook seemed to deeply affect him, and Brutus had one last request before they said goodbye:

"Would you mind," he asked Allman, "signing this for my friend?"

So Allman did, with a sentence that is now his epitaph in Buffalo, a sentence that speaks for every astounded teenager in a high school auditorium, more than 40 years ago:

"To Joe: I remember every note of this."
