Since Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks announced they were leaving the Allman Brothers Band at the end of 2014, this isn't a surprise, but it is still kind of sad. Greg Allman admitted in a recent interview that the band would indeed quit touring at the end of this year. 45 years is a long time to do anything, and when you think of how harsh life on the road is - especially when you consider the early years of the Allman Brothers Band - it's a remarkable run. I have never seen them live, so if they get close this year, I'm hitting the highway to catch them before it's over.
