Gregg Allman's funeral was a who's who of his closest friends and celebrity fans.

Acuri was just one of the thousands of people with an emotional connection to the band's lyrics. Fans were able to see the service from the hillside. Legendary Southern rocker Gregg Allman has been laid to rest near his older brother Duane in Macon, Georgia, not far from Highway 41. Although the service was only open to family and friends of the Allman Brothers co-founder, fans lined the route between the funeral home and Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon.

Guests were asked specifically by Allman's longtime manager Michael Lehman to dress casually, specificially in jeans. Together they formed the heart of The Allman Brothers Band.

Gregg was scheduled to perform on Saturday at Macon's Grand Opera House before he cancelled his 2017 tour plans as he battled health issues.

Allman died May 27 in his home in Savannah at the age of 69.

Lehman said Gregg spent his final night listening to tracks off his upcoming solo album Southern Blood.

"He was looking forward to sharing it with the world and that dream is going to be realized", Lehman told the Associated Press.
