Gregg Allman is a legend. He either coined the term "Southern rock" himself or inspired it with the Allman Brothers Band. Gregg kept the band going for 45 years through countless reformations and pushed on after the fatal motorcycle crash of his brother Duane Allman. The group only recently called it a day this past October.
But die-hard fans of songs like "Midnight Rider" and "Ramblin' Man" need not suffer too deep a mourning. Only a couple months after the break up of the band, Allman's on the road with a solo tour, complete with an eight piece backing band that will take him to Hard Rock Live January 4.
The charming Mr. Allman took time out of his holiday festivities to reminisce about youthful sibling rivalries, how Otis Redding inspired his musical career, and the news that fans can one day soon expect a new album composed of tracks written exclusively by Gregory LeNoir Allman.
