Gregg Allman has admitted he’s glad he chose the life of a musician over a career in dentistry.

Speaking in the new issue of Uncut, out Thursday, March 29, the Allman Brothers Band singer and multi-instrumentalist explains: “I was going to be an oral surgeon. But there’s a lot of crap to remember.

“And I don’t think I’d like to get up every morning at seven o’clock, get into the office and look into someone’s nasty mouth. I’m glad I chose rock’n’roll!”

Allman also answered questions from fans and famous friends, discussing jamming with Muddy Waters, hanging out in the White House and his late brother Duane.
