Gregg Allman cleared by doctors to begin book tour

Gregg Allman has been cleared by doctors to begin his book tour next week, as expected.

Last week, Allman announced that he was delaying the start of the trip to undergo diagnostic cardiac testing at the Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, after experiencing arrhythmia (an irregular heartbeat) following a recent hernia operation.

Gregg will launch his new autobiography, “My Cross To Bear” - which was published Tuesday – on May 8 in Atlanta.

There are currently six stops on the book tour, including Nashville, Chicago and Los Angeles.

For the first time, the founding member of the Allman Brothers Band tells the story of his life, including the music, the band, the tragedies, and the triumphs.

One of the most entertaining live bands ever to take the stage, the Allman Brothers Band defined the meaning of live rock and roll. But despite nearly a half-century of massive success, no one has ever told the inside story of the band and the brothers behind it.

“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,” Gregg said last year. “More than forty years later, I figure it’s finally time to write about this crazy journey that’s taken me around the world and back.”
