Description
"Based on extensive interviews with band members and their intimates plus thousands of court documents, Midnight Riders captures for the first time one of the most riveting stories in American rock history. It tells of the brothers' difficult childhood: their extraordinary self-education in the world of Southern blues and r&b; their unsuccessful early musical incarnations; and their triumph as they rose to unimaginable wealth and success. It explores Gregg's marriage to Cher and describes their tumultuous relationship with details never before disclosed. It also documents for the first time how Gregg's drug connections with members of the notorious Dixie Mafia jeopardized his life and led to the band's bitter breakup. Finally, it chronicles the band's recent reunion and triumphant reemergence as one of the strongest live groups on tour today, culminating in its induction into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
