    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.

    "Great Story!"

    Story
    If you could sum up My Cross to Bear in three words, what would they be?

    Honest. Sober. Fair.
    This is a bare it all, tell it like it was great story! Most rockers, bluesmen that have this tale to tell are dead, and Lord knows Gregg came close enough too many times - I think he will acknowledge, truthfully and soberly, that God has something left for him to do. Could there be a Reverend Gregg Allman? I'd love to spend an afternoon talking with this guy.
    I gave the Performance ""3 stars"" because of the amount of the profanity, but the Story category is clearly a 5Star.
    If you haven't read or listened to this - if Gregg and/or the ABB do it for ya - check this out. If you have the means to listen to it, I think that's the best, you hear it all in that same soulful voice. You can hear him well enough to know he's being truthful, and he tells some hard truths on himself.
    Its enough to make you think he'd been tied to the whippin' post!


    What other book might you compare My Cross to Bear to and why?

    Clapton's autobiography, but this is a much better book. Clapton patted himself on the back a lot, talked a lot about how much money he had, etc. Not so here.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I didn't dislike anything - he told it all, in my opinion and as I know it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    The guy must have 9 lives, or God really hasn't finished with him. I'm a Christian, I'm inclined to think God has a plan for him.
