Reading: Michelle Picks Gregg Allman’s Autobiography
I finally got around to reading a loaned copy of “My Cross To Bear” by Gregg Allman. It’s not a literary work of art but it IS worthy of your summertime spare time.
This autobiography is nearly 400 pages of simply written, scattered thoughts by Gregg Allman. At a glance, it appears to be set up in chronological order but the guy jumps around a lot. What’s great about the book is that Gregg Allman certainly has been around the rock ‘n roll block a few times so rarely are you far from some dramatically tragic event involving a band member, friend, wife or drug dealer.
Massive addiction to drugs and alcohol, band break ups and make ups, six different wives and 4 children from 4 different women make for an interesting story.
Again, this is NOT a book written by a literary genius which I appreciated to a certain extent. Clearly, Gregg Allman wrote this in his own words with little editing by anyone.
Worth a read? Absolutely!
