Allman Funeral Set For Saturday

Gregg Allman's memorial will be held this Saturday in Macon, Georgia.

The legendary Allman Brothers band co-founder's funeral will be private and will be open to only family and close friends at 1 p.m. at Snow's Memorial Chapel, the Macon Telegraph reported.

Lehman told the Macon Telegraph that blue jeans will be the go-to choice of clothing — and at most, sport coats.

Allman will be buried in an area next to his brother Duane and late band member Berry Oakley.  Fans hoping to pay their respects on Saturday are asked to create a mile-long motorcade route between the funeral home and cemetery, according to the Telegraph.

According to Gregg Allman's website:
The procession will begin after the memorial service at the intersection of Cherry Street and 1st Street.  The route will run north on 1st Street and then turn west onto Riverside Drive to the entrance of Rose Hill Cemetery.  The family respectfully asks for privacy during the memorial service and burial.
