Drug addiction? Check. Liver transplant? Oh yeah. Hepatitis C? Big deal.
At 64 years old, Gregg Allman's been through a lot of shit. But for the Nashville-born, Georgia-based Southern rocker, slowing down is not an option.
Last January, Allman released his first solo album in 14 years, Low Country Blues, and hit the road on a good ol' fashion promotional tour. On January 18, the legendary musician will sing those low country blues at Hard Rock Live. But before y'all run to Hollywood, however, make sure you pack a Gregg Allman gift basket.

Gregory Lenoir Allman has been clean since the mid-90s. He shook that nasty heroin habit years ago. His big vice now? Tattoos. Unfortunately, too many ink pieces may lead to Hep C. Don't share needles, y'all.
Did you know Gregg Allman's an avid gardner? That's right, he's a sucker for "anything with color."

Also known as Rogaine, Minoxidill stimulates hair growth. Unfortunately, liver transplant patients often experience hair loss. It'd be a damn shame if Allman's luscious locks fell out.
