Nearly two years after Gregg Allman’s death, the rock legend’s grave finally has a headstone!
“It’s about time,” a music industry insider sniffed to The National ENQUIRER. “I don’t know why it took so long, but his fans definitely noticed — and they were not happy!”
Gregg, who was married to Cher in the ’70s, passed away at age 69 in May 2017 after battling liver cancer.
He was laid to rest in Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia, alongside his brother and bandmate, Duane, who died in a motorcycle accident in 1971, and Allman Brothers Band bassist Berry Oakley, who died in 1972.
Fans flocked to the graves, which had become overgrown.
“Here is a picture of Gregg Allman’s grave. It’s very sad that nothing has been done since his death,” one fan wrote online last year.
Gregg’s headstone — engraved with lyrics from his hit song “Melissa” — was laid in March and crews have cleaned up the area around the gravesites.
“It’s a shame it took so long after Gregg’s death for people to realize this needed to be a place of honor for fans to reflect on memories of these rock giants,” said one source.
“Now they can hopefully all rest in peace together.”
