Gregg Allman tribute video released on anniversary of his death

The music of Gregg Allman lives on.

The Southern rock legend died one year ago on May 27, and to commemorate the anniversary of his passing at age 69, his team compiled a three-minute video that showcases Allman the way he’d want to be remembered – always making music.

The clip, set to his 1973 song “Queen of Hearts” from his “Laid Back” solo album, features Allman – both vintage and recent – working in the studio and playing live.

There also a snippet from his Fox Theatre tribute concert in Atlanta in 2014.

The musician had been in poor health before his death and had undergone a liver transplant in 2010.

Sting receives honorary degree, sings at Brown University

English musician Sting sang "My One and Only Love" at Brown University after he and his wife Trudie Styler accepted honorary degrees.

Brown presented them with the degrees Sunday at its 250th commencement. Nobel Prize-winning physicist J. Michael Kosterlitz was among the other honorees.

Sting in 1977 formed the pioneering British rock band The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. He and Styler co-founded an environmental organization, the Rainforest Fund, to protect the world's rainforests.

The university conferred a total of 2,795 degrees to undergraduate, graduate, medical and honorary students.

Before commencement, students walked from the Brown campus to the First Baptist Church in America. Located in Providence, it's the oldest Baptist church congregation in the U.S.
