Musician Gregg Allman—of the Allman Brothers—is a gruff-voiced growler whose personal story conjures the spirit of the blues. From the Southern roots the brothers tapped in their highly influential music to the tragic death of brother Duane, his brief marriage to Cher, and his struggles with drug addiction and recent health problems, Gregg Allman’s life is rife with symbolism of the soul-selling variety. Will Patton gets Allman’s sultry drawl down, and it’s as sticky as a hot Georgia night. With its plaintive rasp, filled with honesty, Patton’s portrayal brings Allman to life, making this more than a music bio. It’s a travelogue bursting at the seams with poignant details about fame, success, and redemption. J.S.H. 2013 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
