My Cross to Bear is the autobiography by Gregg Allman from 2012. In this book he talks about several topics from his life such as him and Duane as kids, the forming of their various bands including The Allman Brothers Band, the deaths of Duane and Barry Oakley, the turbulence in the band, his girlfriends and wives (including Cher) and his kids, his drug and alcohol addictions and overcoming them, his liver transplant and his getting to know his kids after they’ve grown up.
It’s an interesting read that gives an insight in some of what it’s like being a member of a famous rock band. He discusses the struggles getting the band going and getting record deals.
