Chopped Liver – Liver ‘n’ Onions

The news this week that Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers, who had a big instrumental hit called Jessica in the early 70’s not just in this country and in America, but also in my bedroom in Glasgow, had a liver transplant. Gregg who? you might ask. Well, if I’m not mistaken he was once to married to plastic person Cher, I believe – oh, that Gregg. Yes, that Gregg.

Anyway he has had a liver transplant this week, and is expected to be in hospital for a whole week! One week! Outrageous! That means he’ll miss England v Germany, Spain v Portugal and Brazil and… and… and.. – oh one week is just toooo long!

But it reminds me of another legendary rock star who had a liver transplant many many years ago – that being Jack Bruce, fellow Glaswegian and bass guitarist/lead singer of Cream, He has been fine since and performing on stage still and all good. But when he came out of surgery in the hospital, I swear (and it’s in his autobiography), the very first meal he was offered was none other than liver and onions! He politely refused the offerring.

I sent him a note recently and you can read it in his guestbook on the Jack Bruce website.
