This story has been updated to include the contents of a statement issued by Allman through his manager.  It's the piece we were hoping for earlier today, when I originally published this article.

Gregg's statement follows: “Hey everyone. I just wanted y’all to know that I’m currently home in Savannah resting on my doctor’s orders. I want to thank you for all the love that you are sending. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Keep Rockin’ “

The original post appears below:

Gregg Allman, the voice of Southern Rock for decades, first with the Allman Brothers and through his solo career, has reportedly entered hospice. The result of a long history of illnesses, including the need for a liver transplant in 2010.

So far, only a few Twitter posts asking for prayers, and an unconfirmed Facebook post reports the hospice placement.  But his history of hard-partying and drug abuse clearly has taken its toll.

According to his website in March, Allman cancelled his entire 2017 tour schedule, after a string of missed concerts dating back to last Summer.  The announcement then said he would be seeking treatment for "Serious health Issues," at the Mayo Clinic.

No official statement from Allman or his management is available at this writing.
