Wow. 2008, and no further interest. Hmmm. Does anyone have the information about his involvement in his manager's scoring dope for the band, being busted, and taking the fall? I remember that as being interesting. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mszd (talkcontribs) 02:43, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

In 1976, Gregg Allman was busted for drugs and was facing prison time. In exchange for immunity against prosecution, he testified against the person who was supplying him with the drugs -- his tour manager John "Scooter" Herring. Herring was sentenced to 75 years and the other members of the band were so infuriated by what Allman did that they refused to work with him again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gsq826 (talkcontribs) 06:44, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Personal life[edit]

Urk. What a mess. I've removed the links to "pregnancy" and "miscarriage". They aren't really relevant to Gregg Allman's bio and linking every word with a corresponding Wiki article quickly turns a page into nothin' but blue links. There were several sentences that appear to have been inserted between, or tacked to the end of, previously existing ones. I fixed those and tried to reorganize the various marriages and children into a more coherent format. We jumped from his marriages to his children back to his marriages. I think Allman's children should either be discussed with each marriage, in a separate section, or not at all.

Really, the whole thing needs to be rewritten, IMO, but I don't have the time. --Fean (talk) 02:37, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

I recall an article in "High Times" entitled "Snitcher Chic" showing Gregg Allman & Cher which stated that Gregg's lifelong friend had copped drugs for him and when Gregg was busted, he testified against his friend, getting the guy life in prison while getting himself off all charges. Anyone else recall? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:29, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Gregg allman laid back.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Gregg allman laid back.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 22:06, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Jack White Influence?[edit]

Jack White is listed as one of his influences in an edit added by Special:Contributions/ My brief googling didn't find any other references to this fact. While I could believe this, it would be nice to see some kind of citation. UnwashedMeme (talk) 02:05, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

"Urinal encounters"??[edit]

ummm, is this really necessary? Jones629 (talk) 03:20, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

yeah I'm gonna delete this since it's definitely something the article can exist without it. "It must have significance to the article; the article should be incomplete without such a mention. The policy regarding this is laid out in the policy guidelines WP:HTRIV and WP:UNDUE, where it is specified, among other things, that items in an article must meet criteria of significance or meaning and not be merely vaguely interesting peripheral matters."

cit refs[edit]

I'm certainly no expert at referencing, but even my meager knowledge leads me to believe that this page was very poorly sourced. I have removed the "<ref></ref>" from around several "cits." They do not cite references, only restating the info in more detail, and leaving the basic statements unsupported. If I am in error, please feel feee to revert. I have to attend to another problem in the real world, but will return to this article today to fix my new error created. If you feel inclined, fix that as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ragityman (talkcontribs) 15:57, 10 April 2014‎ (UTC)
