Gregg Allman would have celebrated his 71st birthday today (December 8), and we’d like to take you back to an incredible interview he did on Conan promoting his autobiography in 2012.

The interview covers a multitude of topics from trying to fight Johnny Rotten, listening back to At Fillmore East and the Allman Brothers Band Museum in Macon, Georgia.
