The group announced their separation at the end of 2014 and performed their final concert on October 28, 2014. The [[AuthorExistenceFailure deaths of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks in 2017]] has most likely closed the door on any further reunions for good and leaves Johanson and Betts as the two remaining founding members of the band.

* DownerEnding: Subverted repeatedly. When Duane died, the remaining members considered disbanding, but decided to soldier on. Then, Gregg testified against a security guard, which his bandmates [[WhatTheHellHero didn't appreciate]] and broke off communication with, effectively ending the band. Then they made up and reformed. Then tensions started brewing between Dickey Betts and Gregg, which ended with Betts getting kicked out in 2000. The band soldiered onwards until 2014, when they amicably broke up after a GrandFinale.

Then, Butch Trucks died in January 2017 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, while Gregg Allman died four months later from complications of liver cancer; Jaimoe and Dickey Betts are the two founding members who are still alive.
* DrivenToSuicide: Butch Trucks committed suicide in January 2017.

*** And it gets ''more'' complicated during live performances. The ''At Fillmore East'' version, for instance, has two distinct sections in free time.

* {{Jazz}}: Music/JohnColtrane was one of Duane's biggest influences, and the band's lengthy improvisations could be considered the rock equivalent of jazz.

** "Revival" switches meter signatures a lot too, including several segments with compound meters. The band employed this trope pretty often, really.

-->I didn't know the intro was in 11/4 time. I just saw it as three sets of three, and then two to jump on the next three sets with: it was like 1,2,31,2,31,2,31,2. I didn't count it as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11. It was one beat short, but it didn't feel one short, because to get back to the triad, you had two steps to go up. You'd really hit those two hard, to accent them, so that would separate the threes. ... [Duane] said, 'That's good man, I didn't know that you understood 11/4.' Of course I said something intelligent like, 'What's 11/4?' Duane just said, 'Okay, dumbass, I'll try to draw it up on paper for you.

* CoverVersion: They've done one of Donovan's "There Is a Mountain" (as "Mountain Jam", an indicator of its length), and often worked several blues standards into their jams. One unusual cover they did was of Music/FleetwoodMac's "Gold Dust Woman", a song that takes potshots at rock and roll stars' tendencies for excessive indulgence (something the Allman Brothers were no stranger to).
