Product description

For almost fifty years, Gregg Allman has been creating some of the most recognizable songs in rock music, and now, he shares the full story about the wild ride of his life. From growing up with his older brother, Duane, to forming the Allman Brothers Band, from run-ins with the law to jamming at the Fillmore East, Gregg goes behind the scenes of some of the greatest rock music ever recorded, while also speaking for the first time about the painful deaths of Duane and Allman Brothers bassist Berry Oakley. Setting the record straight about the band's struggles in wake of tragedy, he shows the heavy price of their decision to continue, discussing his own battles with substance abuse as he floated through a string of failed marriages, including his relation-ship with Cher, before finally cleaning up.Capturing the Allman Brothers ongoing, triumphant resurgence, Gregg presents a story as honest as it is fascinating, offering a glimpse inside one of the most beloved and notorious bands in the history of rock music.

Review quote

In his memoir, the rambling and rambunctious Gregg Allman lays bare his soul... In the end, Allman, writing with music journalist Light, has produced a fiercely honest memoir.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
