Gregg Allman and Cher love story
When they met in January 1975, it was a tumultuous and transitional time for both the glamorous pop star and the hard-partying rocker. Cher was in the midst of a messy divorce and custody battle with first husband Sonny Bono, after walking away from their hit CBS show The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour the year before;But when they laid eyes on each other for the first time backstage at one of his solo shows in L.A. their physical chemistry was undeniable. “She smelled like I would imagine a mermaid would smell—I’ve never smelled it since, and I’ll never forget it,” Allman wrote in his memoir, My Cross to Bear. Cher was at the concert on a date with record mogul David Geffen; Allman wrote that when he walked up to them “I was so rude; I didn’t say hello or nothing at all, because I was so blinded by her.” Nevertheless, Cher gave Allman her number and he called her the next day.According to his memoir, they had one of the worst first dates of all time (it ended with him passing out after shooting heroin), but their second date, to a disco club, went a bit smoother. “I don’t know how to dance, but I got drunk enough to where I did,” he wrote. “This is when disco was just taking off, so we did some dirty dancing. She had one drink, while I had my 21, of course. When we got back to her place, she took me out to her rose garden, and all the roses were just starting to bloom…We made some serious love!”On June 30, 1975, just three days after her divorce from Bono was finalized, Cher, then 29, and Allman, then 27, jetted off to Las Vegas to get hitched.
