It’s not what you’d expect. Here’s Gregg Allman, legendary rocker with deep Macon roots, moving force of one of Southern rock’s most enduring bands, cradling a toy … poodle?

“I think Gregg, now, is in total the cat you used to see flashes of. You knew all that warmth and goodness were there. Now he’s such a joy to be around. We live together (when the band tours). It’s a wonderful, wonderful thing to be around Gregg now,” said Kirk West.
