Gregg Allman is scheduled to recieve the Living Ledgend award at the Classic Rock and Roll honor ceremony.  He is scheduled to be presented the award on Tuesday, November 4th at the Avalon in Hollywood.

"I am so very honoured to be receiving this award from Classic Rock", says Allman. "The magazine is one of my favourites and they are always so generous to me and the Brothers."
"Where can you start with Gregg Allman?", says Classic Rock editor Siân Llewellyn. "The rock'n'roll world would be a very different (and far lesser) place without him. As a founding member and guiding light of the Allman Brothers Band and a hugely influential solo artist, Gregg has touched the lives of rock fans all over the globe for over four decades. I'm thrilled that we can call him Classic Rock Magazine's Living Legend 2014."

Other recipients of the award include Black Sabbath, Jeff Beck, Lemmy, Jimmy Page and Alice Cooper.

Allman was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 alongside the Allman Brothers Band.  The event is set to be hosted for the first time outside of London.  The Allman Brothers Band also received a lifetime achievement award in 2012 at the 54th annual Grammy Awards show.

The event is set to be the 10th Anniversary of the Class Rock and Roll of Honor, and will be hosted by Sammy hagar.

Gregg Allman and the Allman Brothers Band are gearing up for their final shows at the Beacon Theatre next month. The Allmans recently played their last festival show at Lockn’, when they performed their classic 1971 live album At Fillmore East in its entirety.
