Gregg Allman titled his 1973 solo debut Laid Back, and 34 years later he’s still anything but uptight. The almost-60 legend talks with a casual swagger. “When you got the blues, if push comes to shove, just sit down behind your piano, or sit down with your guitar,” says Allman. “Don’t take no bunch of drugs or drink no bunch of nothing. Just make some music, man. Make some magic, and it’ll make you feel better.” Allman kicks off a solo tour this Friday night in Charleston, bringing with him a full backing band, some of whom he’s been jamming with since the Allman Brothers’ early days in Macon. They’ll draw from his catalog of solo material as well as cuts originally recorded by the Brothers.
