Gregg Allman, one of the architects of Southern rock, died Saturday at 69 years old. The founder of the Allman Brothers Band succumbed to complications of liver cancer in Savannah, Georgia, according to CNN, and almost immediately, musicians and fans flocked to Twitter to mourn his loss.

Including his ex-wife, Cher.

Musicians from all across the spectrum also paid tribute to Allman on social media.

Allman reportedly will be buried at Rose Hill cemetery in Macon, Georgia, the same place where his brother, Duane Allman, and Berry Oakley—two other founding members of the Allman Brothers—have been buried.
