Rock 'n' roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman underwent a successful liver transplant surgery Wednesday morning at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla.
Allman began treatment for Hepatitis C in 2007, but chronic damage to his liver led to the transplant. He had been on the waiting list until doctors found a suitable liver.
