Gregg Allman's Last Words To Duane Was A Drug Lie

(Classic Rock) The last conversation between the Allman Brothers was an argument over cocaine, singer Gregg Allman has revealed.

He stole drugs from guitarist Duane then lied about it the morning before his older sibling died in a motorbike crash in 1971, aged 24. And in his book My Cross to Bear, the musician admits he'll never forgive himself.

Allman explains he'd given Duane $100 to buy him a gram of coke, but the drug didn't arrive. In retaliation he went to his brother's house the next day, let himself in and located his stash. The singer "poured out about half a gram and snorted it up."

When he got home an angry Duane called him and accused him of stealing. He writes: "That last thing I ever said to my brother was a f***ing lie, man: 'No, I did not,' I told him."
