Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts Chase Johnny Rotten
Last night, Gregg Allman made his first appearance on the TBS talk show Conan. Instead of performing an Allman Brothers Band classic or a song from his solo career, Allman sat with Conan O’Brien for a spirited, soft spoken discussion. Those stories included the time Allman and Dickey Betts tried to track down Sex Pistols’ Johnny Rotten—who had insulted the Allman Brothers Band—and how he originally laughed at Jimmy Carter’s presidential bid. A clip of the interview can be found above or in a larger form on Relix.com. An excerpt from Allman’s new memoir My Cross to Bear will also be included in the July issue of Relix.
