He has interviewed every living band member for this book as well as managers, roadies, and contemporaries.

Gregg allman, costar of Rush, the great film about drugs and undercover cops, also starring Jennifer Jason leigh, Jason Patrick, and scored by eric Clapton, died last week. R.I.P. I hope he was able to see Cher's performance at the award show, the mtv one, a couple of weeks ago.

One musical genius in this band and his name was Duane Allman. I would highly suggest reading Randy Poe's bio of Duane called, "Skydog, The Duane Allman Story".

This is a very good book and provides a different perspective on one of the all time great American R & R bands.
