Gregg Allman Pens His Memoirs
Allman is the latest rock star to write his autobiography
According to the Hollywood Reporter the frontman for the legendary Allman Brothers Band has signed with William Morrow to bring his untitled memoir to print in spring 2012.
Allman's book was on the shortlist of great unwritten rock memoirs. William Morrow describes the project as an "unflinching" look at his life. In a statement announcing the deal, Allman said, "When I got out of high school, I thought, I'll take a year or two off and play the clubs, get this out of my system and then go to med school. More than 40 years later, I figure it's finally time to write about this crazy journey that's taken me around the world and back."
William Morrow senior vp and director of creative development Lisa Sharkey, who acquired the book, said: "If ever there was a musician with a devoted fan base and an incredible life story to tell, Gregg Allman is the one. This memoir truly has it all."
