Few bands have a history with as many triumphs and tragedies as the Allman Brothers Band. The group and individual members have peered over the abyss and somehow managed to persevere. That Gregg Allman is even around to have written a book that chronicles his individual and the group's shared history is remarkable. The legendary musician sat and talked about his past and some of the highs and lows that make the ongoing success of the group such a compelling story.
As this story was unfolding, we got word that former Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts has been forced to postpone a series of solo dates to be with his wife Donna, who contracted a staph infection and will require surgery in Sarasota, Florida.
