The Allman Brothers Band Says Farewell to a Brother, Earl Francis
Posted by: Rowland on Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 05:00 PM

The Allman Brothers Band have lost another member of itsí family today.

Earl Francis died peacefully in hospice overnight at a VA hospital in Wilkes Barre, PA.

Earl Francis joined the family in 1989 as a lighting rigger and grew to be lighting director through 2014.

Earl also worked many Gregg Allman tours as well as continuing his long time employment with BML/Blackbird Theatrical services.

Known to many as Pappy, he was always the first to load in and last to load out, willing to lend a hand or his expertise at any given moment.

Earl always had a kind word even when he was being irascible.

A Vietnam Veteran and a survivor of the Rock & Roll wars.

He will be missed by all that worked with him and knew him.

A loyal Brother until the end.

See you and the rest of the guys when we get there to join you on the stage of after life.

Worked with Pappy for many years at BML-Blackbird. We've lost a lot of good ones to the great gig in the sky as of late but he was one of the best. He taught me so much about the business and life and he will be greatly missed by all those who have ever known him.

Rest is peace Pappy.
