Gregg Allman Says Allman Brothers Band Done After 2014

Who would’ve thought coming into the New Year that The Allman Brothers
Band
would be entering their final year as a touring entity? Following the surprising
news that guitarists Derek Trucks and
Warren Haynes will leave the band at the end of 2014
, comes Gregg Allman’s revelation
that the group isn’t looking to replace the axe-men.

Gregg has told Relix Magazine that this year is it for the 45-
year-old act. “This is it—this is the end of it,” Allman told Relix in a soon-to-be-
published interview. The founding member of the group goes on to say, “45 years is enough
and I want to do something else, anyway. Everyone has their own real good perspective
bands.” Of course Gregg also told Rolling Stone late last year that Oteil Burbridge was
leaving the group and that turned out to be false, so take Allman’s words with a grain of
salt. There’s 11 months before the end of 2014. Allman even leaves the door open for a future reunion by telling Relix, “We may get
together every five years and just do one play at a time.”

The Allman Brothers Band currently have 19 gigs on the books between their upcoming Beacon
run and headlining appearances at Wanee, the Peach Music Fest and Lockn’. Derek and Warren are
expected to devote time to their main projects, the Tedeschi Trucks Band and Gov’t Mule
respectively.
