No book on The Allman Brothers Band would be complete without an account of Gregg Allman's solo comeback of the eighties and the twentieth-anniversary reunion tour of The Allman Brothers Band. No Saints, No Saviors is a story of triumphs and heart-breaks, but ultimately it is a story about how the music of The Allman Brothers Band may well live forever.

This is the only story about the legendary Allman Brothers Band written by a true insider. It's a great read; it's funny; it's sad; it recalls in great detail what it was like to work in the crazy rock and roll business in the 1970's, a far cry from what it is today. It wasn't what you looked like, it wasn't how you dressed, it was how you sounded. It was about music, not image.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It was truly amazing growing up with a brother who left the 'suit and tie' world to go to Macon and get in the Rock and Roll business. This book came out exactly as I thought it would. Very truthful and very discerning without compromising the professionalism that I know Willie has in his work and life. It is a must read for those of us who grew up in the Southern Rock era and still revel in the sounds of dueling guitar symetry with a bass and slide that stirs emotion in my heart to this very day!Was this review helpful?
