“I’ve been working on the book for years and am grateful for all the support I’ve received in putting it together,” said Allman in a statement. “As soon as doctors give me the thumbs up to go back on the road, I will be heading out onto my book tour and I can’t wait to meet all of my fans.”

Allman was also scheduled to appear on several American TV shows to promote the book, including Piers Morgan Tonight.
