News of Gregg Allman’s death was met with an outpouring of grief on Saturday. 

The legendary musician “passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia,” according to a statement on Allman’s official website, which noted his family planned on releasing their own statement soon. “Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.”

Man. #WhippingPost was the fabric of the musical blanket of my childhood. Thank you #DuaneAllman!!!
