Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman is denying reports that he’s entered a hospice facility.

Relix.com reported that Allman had reportedly entered hospice care on Monday, but the 69-year-old rock legend quickly denied the rumor on his Facebook page, saying that he was at his own home in Savannah, Georgia, resting on his doctor’s orders.

The hospice speculation came up partly because Allman announced last month that he would not be touring this year. He also canceled previously scheduled concerts for June, according to Rolling Stone.

No reason was given for the canceled shows.

Allman’s last performance was in October at the Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, Georgia, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In recent years, Allman has suffered a variety of ailments, including an irregular heartbeat, a respiratory infection, a hernia and a liver transplant.

He’s also had problems with drug and alcohol abuse throughout his career, the latest being in 2012 when he entered rehab for medication treatment, according to Variety.
