Rocker Gregg Allman Laid to Rest

Legions of fans lined the streets of Macon, Georgia, on Saturday to honor music legend Gregg Allman as he was carried to his final resting place. The Saturday afternoon service was private, with only about 100 people expected to attend inside a small chapel. Police closed downtown streets to accommodate the crush of fans coming to watch Allman's body being taken from the chapel to Rose Hill Cemetery, where he will be buried near his late brother, guitarist Duane Allman. Their band began its rise to fame in the central Georgia city 90 miles south of Atlanta about five decades ago. Allman, who blazed a trail for many southern rock groups, died May 27 at the age of 69 at his home near Savannah, Georgia.
