Gregg Allman

“Baybrah”

 

This painting of Gregory “Gregg” Allman is the natural followup to the recent Duane Allman painting, SkyDog. I chose to show Gregory playing guitar as a simple tribute to his humble beginnings and a nod to brother Duane. The painting is titled Baybrah, a nickname which Duane called him. Gregory has said “He always called me that and if we lived to me being 95 and him being 96 I’d still be the baby brother”. I thought it was appropriate being that I’ve painted them both.

Gregory Allman, born December 8, 1947 is an American rock and blues singer-songwriter, keyboardist, guitarist and a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band. The band was formed in 1969 and based in the Southeastern United States. In the early 1970s, they had major success with the line up of Gregory, his brother Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and ”Jaimoe”. Gregory was inducted with the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. He was also inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame on September 16, 2006. His distinctive voice places him 70th in the Rolling Stone list of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time”.  And currently, Gregory will receive the living legend award at this fall’s 10th annual Classic Rock Roll of Honour ceremony Nov. 4, 2014 at the Avalon in Hollywood. 

Most often pictured playing the Hammond B-3, Gregory has a preference for a 1969-issue B3 hooked to a Leslie speaker 122RV and he handles much of the lead vocals and songwriting, along with piano and guitar contributions. In the early seventies, he started out on a solo career. The first album, Laid Back, was released in 1973 to a positive critical reception. His recent solo album, Low Country Blues, was produced by T-Bone Burnett and issued in early 2011. It ‘s a collection of blues standards and one new song written by him. The album was nominated as the Best Blues Album for the 2011 Grammy Awards.

The photo reference and inspiration for this soulful piece was provided by my friend and photographer, Tom Hazeltine of Lexington, MA.
I hope you agree that this Gregg Allman art captures the man we all know and love.

Sadly, on May 27th, 2017, Gregg passed away.
