The short list of rock and rollers who you wish would release a “tell-all” book would probably include Keith Richard, Steven Tyler, Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, and – Gregg Allman.

Well, Allman Bros fans can relax and get ready to enjoy “My Cross To Bear” – the new memoir from Gregg Allman.  In the book, Allman relates the story of a small town band that went on to become one of the iconic groups of rocks’ formative years;  It also relates the trials and tribulations that went with their rise to fame – namely sex and drugs.

One interesting passage talks about his volatile 1975 marriage to Cher.

He talks in-depth about his rocky relationships, including his spur of-the-moment flight to Las Vegas for his marriage to Cher — an event he immediately regretted as he daydreamed mid-ceremony: The marriage lasted from 1975 to ‘79 and produced a son.

On a more positive note, Gregg Allman mentions that strong bond that he still has with his brother Duane – 41 years after his death in a motorcycle accident.
