Gregg Allman -- the musician, singer and songwriter known for fronting The Allman Brothers Band for 45 years -- has died from complications due to liver cancer ... TMZ has learned.

The actor who played the original Green Power Ranger -- who may have been targeted for death at Comicon this week -- says security at the conventions is pathetic.

Jason says these events are targets and there is no real security to see what weapons people might be bringing in.
