For the first time, rock icon Gregg Allman, one of the founding members of The Allman Brothers Band, tells the story of his career, opening up about his long struggle with substance abuse, the tragic death of his brother and life in one of rock music''s most legendary bands.
From the Publisher:
Offering a colorful portrait of growing up in the 1960s South, rock icon Greg Allman, who, with the Allman Brothers Band, defined the meaning of rock and roll, reveals the bands' many struggles, hardships, personality clashes and ultimately the joy that went into making some of the most electrifying rock and roll ever recorded. 250,000 first printing.
Annotation:
The career highs and lows, the rocky personal life, and the struggles with drug abuse--many know about the dramatic life led by musician Gregg Allman. Until now, however, the accounts have been scattered and riddled with conjecture. With this autobiography, the Hall-of-Fame songwriter offers a personal look into his life and music. Allman offers details about his early life and about the band he formed with his brother that brought these two southern boys international fame. Allman also discusses openly his multiple marriages and his experiences as father and grandfather. Still working as a touring musician, Allman has a unique perspective on what it means to be a lifelong musician.

Praise

"[A] fiercely honest memoir." (starred review) 04/09/2012

"[A] soul-searching rumination on a hard-lived life, one that yielded multiple marriages, endless bouts with drugs and alcohol and health woes that include a liver transplant for hepatitis C. . . . Given the celebrity memoir genre often is rife with hyped revisionism, MY CROSS TO BEAR carries a welcome seal of honesty." - Marco R. Della Cava 04/30/2012

"One of the great virtues of MY CROSS TO BEAR . . . is how frank Mr. Allman is about the perks of being a tall, blond, intricately bewhiskered white rock god in skinny jeans who can bellow the blues." - Dwight Garner 05/28/2012
