"[A] fiercely honest memoir." (starred review)
"[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."
"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."
"Reading this book is like sitting on a porch with a garrulous scalawag who gives equal time to his dumb decisions and fantastic luck. Only the rascal talking your ear off is Gregg Allman, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band."
From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note Offering a colorful portrait of growing up in the 1960s South, rock icon Greg Allman, of the Allman Brothers Band, reveals the band's many struggles, hardships, personality clashes and ultimately the joy that went into making music.
