The biggest bedroom at the front of the house went to Gregg Allman and his then-girlfriend, Candy Oakley (the sister of Berry Oakley, one of the band’s founding members), according to the museum’s website, www.thebighousemuseum.com.
It was while they were living in Macon and recording at Capricorn that the Allman Brothers found international fame — and repeat tragedy. In 1971, the band released “At Fillmore East,” which Rolling Stone magazine ranks No. 49 on its list of the best albums of all time. Four days after the album was certified gold, Duane Allman died in a motorcycle accident in October 1971.
