Gregg Allman
‘s memoir ‘My Cross to Bear’ is scheduled to land at bookstores and digital outlets on May 1. The Allman Brothers Band mainstay shared more details about the book on his official Facebook page.

The book pulls back the curtain on his life for the first time, with Allman telling all the thrilling tales of his adventures onstage and off. He goes deep about his several failed marriages, including his high-profile union with Cher. His battles with drugs and alcohol, which eventually lead to him having a liver transplant later in life, are also documented in the tome.

Additionally, his upbringing in the South is also discussed, offering a portrait of life in the 1960s with brother Duane during an intense time of racial and cultural transformation, which eventually impacted the music they made.

The motorcycle deaths of Duane as well as bassist Berry Oakley, which occurred but a year apart, also receive considerable space. Allman has lived a memorable life and this book certainly sounds like a page turner!

There will of course be a digital version, released as an enhanced eBook, which will feature videos, additional interviews, never-before-seen photos and more. Who’s planning to read it?
