CareerEdit

Allman is the singer and guitarist for the rock band Deadsy,[3] which, prior to its hiatus in April 2007, consisted of Alec Püre on drums, Dr. Nner on synthesizer, Carlton Megalodon on Ztar, and Jens Funke on bass. Deadsy released two albums: 2002's Commencement, and Phantasmagore, which came out on August 22, 2006. Many of the themes used by Allman in Deadsy have been heavily influenced by the 1955 film This Island Earth.

He was given his first guitar by Kiss bassist Gene Simmons,[4] and at the age of 13 went on tour as a guitarist with Cher; he appears as a guitarist in the music video for her song "If I Could Turn Back Time". In 1994, he auditioned for the spot of guitarist for Nine Inch Nails, but ended up losing the spot to Robin Finck.

He has worked with Thirty Seconds to Mars for the band's self-titled debut album.[5] and has also provided guest vocals on a variety of songs for other bands including Orgy, Coal Chamber and Sugar Ray.

Personal lifeEdit

Allman attended the Hyde School in Bath, Maine, graduating in 1994.[6][7]

Allman has dated Bijou Phillips,[8] Heather Graham,[9] Kate Hudson,[10] and Paris Hilton.[9]

Through his mother Cher, Allman is of Armenian, Irish, English, and German ancestry.[11]

On December 1, 2013, he married Marieangela King, "Queenie", an English singer, of the band KING and sister of Jazzy and Ruby King from the British pop duo Blonde Electra.[12] The couple broke up on April 20, 2020, and Allman filed for divorce the following year.[13]

In 2014, Allman admitted that he began taking drugs at the age of 11 and battled heroin addiction for years, but claimed being sober since 2008.[14]
