Rolex Hotness and Coolness: Cher and Gregg Allman...

...Rolex Music Legend...

Gregg Allman


Belongs To The Ages

I just learned a few minutes ago that music legend, Gregg Allman just passed away, which is a bummer. Cher got married to Gregg just three days after her divorce from Sonny Bono became final. At the time, in 1975, Cher was 29 years old, and she married Gregg Allman in Las Vegas, who was 27 at the time. In the photo below we see both Cher and Gregg Allman wearing yellow gold Rolex watches. Gregg Allman arguably represented the leading face and voice of Southern Rock.

Cher just Tweeted this about her loss of Gregg Allman:

Both Cher and Gregg Allman have had unbelievable careers that spanned 5 decades. Cher started her career with her first husband, Sonny Bono and later she married Gregg Allman who is a member of the Allman Brothers and has also had a successful solo career.

Cher and Gregg Allman have both worn Rolex watches though their entire careers. In the this first set of photos below, we see Cher wearing her Rolex Lady Date, and Gregg Allman wearing his stainless steel Rolex Submariner.

The next three photos in this article were taken by Michael Ochs in Los Angeles, California in 1977. They were taken at a party at Rona Barrett's home.

Cher must dig dudes who wear Rolex GMT's because her first husband Sonny Bono and her second husband Gregg Allman both wore them. Even Cher's daughter/Son Chaz wears one. 

In this recent photo (below) we see Gregg Allman wearing his stainless steel Rolex Submariner while he performs.

Below is video footage of The Allman Brothers Band live at Fillmore East in 1970, which was the concert that put them on the map.

This next video features The Allman Brother's live in 1981, and it is considered to another one of their great performances.

The video concert below is from The Allman Brothers 40th Anniversary performance in 2009.

Below is a video which features Gregg Allman on Late Night with David Letterman, with a special guest, Red Foxx, who joins them, and notice Red Foxx is wearing a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date. Ronand Reagan was still the President Of The United States when this originally aired in 1987.

A number of celebrity friends paid their respect and said goodbye to Gregg Allman on Twitter:
