As one of the greatest rock icons of all time, Gregg Allman has lived it all and then some. For almost fifty years, he’s been creating some of the most recognizable songs in American rock, but never before has he paused to reflect on the long road he’s traveled. Now, he tells the unflinching story of his life, laying bare the unvarnished truth about his wild ride that has stretched across the years.
The story begins simply: with Gregg and his older brother, Duane, growing up in the South, raising hell with their guitars, fueling each other’s passion for music, and drifting from one band to another in search of a musical future that always seemed just out of reach. But all that changed one historic day when Duane and Gregg came together with four other men to forge something new--a unique sound shaped by soul, rock, and blues and brimming with experimentation; a sound not just of a band, but of a family.
