    As one of the greatest rock icons of all time, Gregg Allman has lived it all and then some. For almost 50 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 spanned across the years.

    Would you consider the audio edition of My Cross to Bear to be better than the print version?

    Yes this book was awesome to listen to and the narrator was fabulous as Gregg.
    Print books have their place but this one was so much fun to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Cross to Bear?

    So many moments but I think when he shot himself in the foot! Having grown up in the Vietnam war era and imagining that moment in time. The part where Gregg talks about Duane's funeral was really moving. The end of the book was so heartwarming and a real inspiration for anyone who has gone thru addictions and grief in their life. It brings back the times, the hippie and freak children days.. carefree and so turbulent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It's not my cross to bear so crucify me anyway!


    Any additional comments?

    The Allman Brothers Band will live on forever as one of the greatest American Rock and Roll/Blues bands of all time. They truly were the innovators of what is now called Southern Rock.

    Few people knew America's comic sweetheart Lucille Ball the way Lee Tannen did. Lee first met Lucy as a child but cemented their close and enduring friendship as an adult. During the last 10 years of Lucy's life - years mostly lived out of the spotlight and mainly around a backgammon table in New York; Beverly Hills; Snowmass, Colorado; and Palm Springs - Lee was fortunate enough to be sitting opposite Lucy.

    Any additional comments?

    My mother saw Lucille Ball perform at Queens College in Charlotte, North Carolina with a traveling troupe of actors in 1939. She said Lucy came out on stage with platinum blonde hair & all the girls just were amazed how beautiful she was! Mother told us she was really a showgirl and she put on a fantastic performance there.

  • Me, the Mob, and the Music: One Helluva Ride with Tommy James and the Shondells

    Everyone knows the hits: "Mony Mony," "I Think We're Alone Now," "Crimson and Clover," "Crystal Blue Persuasion." They are nuggets of rock and pop history. However, few know the unlikely story of how these hits came to be. Tommy James had been performing in rock bands in the Michigan area since the age of 12. Prompted to record a few songs by a local disc jockey in 1964, Tommy chose an obscurity titled "Hanky Panky," which became a minor local hit that came and went.

    Dave says: "What a ride - excellent story, well told"
    "Fabulous Tommy James!!!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Me, the Mob, and the Music the most enjoyable?

    The whole book kept my attention! All their music stands the test of time and is being re-discovered now by younger people today. An era gone by it brings back all the memories of the turbulent 60's and how this music set the touch tone for rock and roll today.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Me, the Mob, and the Music?

    All of it! Probably the most touching was at the end when Morris passed away.
    It all came full circle for Tommy and how he is a survivor too! So many like him ended up in the 27 club he knew personally.


    Have you listened to any of David Colacci’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but excellent narration for this book


    If you could give Me, the Mob, and the Music a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Tommy James a Survivor and Trailblazer of Psychedelic Rock


    Any additional comments?

    If you know this music get this you will not be sorry!
    and if you have never listened to Tommy James and The Shondells get their music!

    They were the last great band of the '60s and the first great band of the '70s. They rose, somewhat unpromisingly, from the ashes of the Yardbirds to become one of the biggest-selling rock bands of all time - and eventually paid the price for it, with disaster, drug addiction, and death.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If You wanna know every fact about Zeppelin then this is the book to listen to.This author did so much research down to every date, time and crazy antics of what the coming of life in rock history this band is even today.
    I grew up and own almost every Led Zeppelin album as they were released so it was fun to listen in and revisit those times back in the late 60's and early 70's. Some of the book became a bit cumbersome with facts but I feel this author wanted to give his perspective as best he could on what he believes really happened.
    Some of the material I am not too sure about and he did seem to give a sort of negative spin on Jimmy Page but all in all it is a good book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Bonzo


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job and this book needed a British accent to help out with the full vision of this band


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No there is no way you can listen to this in one sitting, Too many facts and information, details.


    Any additional comments?

    Led Zeppelin will go down in history as one of the greatest bands of all time 100 years from now.
    This was a time where there were no computers mixing the sound and what they endured to get the music to the level they did is almost amazing today (with all the technology that is used now in the recording industry).
    It is also becoming more rare to find bands that write their own songs, play their own instruments, and sing and perform it and stay together as long as they did.
    If you want to know what music of the real rock and roll era then this is the audio for you. After you listen to this you will have to go listen to their music because you will even further appreciate what they went thru to get it to the level they did from such a meager beginning.
    Peace~and A Whole Lotta Love~
